Took about a hundred pics today and beat my frog within an inch of its life looking for a magazine quality action pic, My cousin ran the camera and I ran the poor frog, we got some pretty clear shots I think and the frog survived several hundred jumps over and over, lost the flags and cracked the body up. Wanted to show movement and interaction with the terrain and capture a moment of intensity suitable for a poster so Here is my best attempt, hope you like it! The landing after this jump was not pretty!

UMMM, with that much dirt flying, is it still considered ALL WHEELS OFF GROUND, if there is that much 'ground' caught in the treads. LOL I do like this photo, but when is Tamiya gonna use it??? They have done it once, who's to say they won't come calling again.

Not sure if you already have heard about the F-350 competition That is a very good contender for the F-350 compo. I think I'll need to replace mine with a better one if that is possible.

Thank you all, I really need to thank my Cousin Jesse for the picture, we were on such a high zoom the the frog was hard to keep in the frame. Mr. Frog will be treated to a rebuild and fresh body for his taking the abuse in stride. LOL! anyway thanks for the comments, with so many great photos I am honored to have been picked. I'll do somthing special with the high-lift.

Some images just jump out at at you, and as you said, 'magazine quality'. Well done.

Excellent photo and well worthy of first place. Makes me think of 1980's r/c magazines pull-out posters which is exactly the point of the competition. A superb effort. Enjoy your well deserved F-350...!

Thank you all, I'm not surprised this had the most hits of anything in my showroom.

Totally awsome and a well deserved win, congarts

Tamiya should buy that from you. You need to contact them yourself.

Frogs are great. I am going to restore mine.

7-Feb-2007

Great photo.
Is that standard tires?

Wyoming

7-Feb-2007

Thanks, no I upgraded them so it has the Tamiya 12mm wheel hex adapter and is fitted with Sand Viper wheels/front tires, Pro-line M3 Bowtie tires on rear. It handles much better now.

7-Feb-2007

COOL! Any pictures of your mod?
