i don't know if anyone has heard of this yet, but i saw an add in the new march issue of rcca (i think??) anyway it looks like tamiya is making a new mini scale buggy. this looks pretty cool, and sounds like the first in a line of tamtech type cars they're introducing. who knows maybe they'll bring back the old tamtech onroad cars as well. i would love for kyosho do do a mini-z scale buggy, like the half-eight scaled down to 1/28 size. hope it's no old news.

I remember reading about the Frog a while back. My first RC car was a TAMIYA Hornet. It would be pretty cool to see a miniature version of that car. Not sure about the quality of the Tamtech series, but it would be fun to have a class to race retro off-road.

Looks cool. Too bad I'm too young to remember classics like the Frog and WIld Willy...I can always get a reprodution model though. (Brusless Lithium Lunchbox anyone? :D )

If you want to try and win a Frog, Tamiya is supposedly giving a few of the 1/16th scales (266mm long) away as door prizes at the 2006 1/18th scale Indoor Off Road Nationals to be held March 31, April 1-2, 2006 in Enfield, Connecticut.

I think the release of the Tamtech (tamiya mini cars) Frog is awesome. The only thing that I hate is the pink body that it comes with. I'm probably not the only one to not like it.

Stays true to its roots that way. Does not bother me, I will just get a replacement lexan body for it any way and paint it up red like I did with my old one.

:D wow the frog. Brings back memories. I still have my 1/10 frog, but I never had it working again after it went out of range and crashed into a curb.

i keep checking sites and my lhs to see if they're available yet. no luck yet. they are supposed to be released in march sometime. i'm not 100% set on buying one yet, but i'm sure we'll hear some reviews on these in the next couple weeks.
