Further Description/Back Story Hello! Here is my vintage Frog/Brat project that I found on ebay with no body. It had Brat rims with worn tires and the unique Brat steering linkage, but it had Frog aluminum rear shocks and differential, so it was pretty much a hybrid starting point. Originally I put it together with a lexan Brat body and enjoyed it that way for many miles. Recently I decided to rebuild it as a Frog. My sons and I have a small backyard RC track which is well suited to vintage buggies. I expect the Frog will be agile enough to avoid any mishaps with their monster trucks!
p.s. I really love the magazine format – A great blend of old school vibes and modern tech!
