Here is the original Tamiya Blackfoot commercial !
The Tamiya Blackfoot, a real ground pounder is here. The tires more than 12cm in diameter and a body lifted high as though riding on air. Offroading with the Blackfoot is the perfect vehicle for breaking in new trails and it has the styling as seen on customized American pickups. You can run it stock or customize it to your own requirements in both looks and performance. The Blackfoot opens up new vistas in offroad enjoyment. It takes a lot more than this to stop the Blackfoot because the Blackfoot is still performing when the tracks run out. The popular space type frame combined with four wheel independent suspension, a sealed gearbox with differential, and a mid ship modern motor for perfect balance is all wrapped up in a modern body styling that provides fantastic performance both on and off the road. Yes, the Blackfoot has a lot to offer.
Keeping everything lined up is the frame and chassis made from a special resin that is both light and tough. The four wheel independent suspension system uses a double wishbone type in the front and single trailing arm type in the rear. With the sealed gearbox housing a competition differential. The Tamiya Blackfoot motor is a track legal Mabuchi RS540S which provides the speed, power and versatility. It can be upgraded if desired to the 8.4v Technigold motor for even more brutal power and performance. The speed controller has three steps forward and three for reverse for positive control at all times. A servo saver is utilized at the front end to protect the mechanics from excessive shock. The body is injection molded of styrene resin in the styling of the Ford Ranger pickup truck and highly realistic and durable. The big tires are semi pneumatic and functional to provide terrain clearance, speed and long wear. Yes its a real mean machine with amazing performance. A real big thumper, that’s the BlackFoot.
