Exclamation I need help.....

I have an older R/C off- road truck but i don't know anything about it. I need help Identifying brand or truck itself. Also I striped the gear inside and need to know what it is called and where to get a new one.

If anyone can help that would be greatly appreciated.....

Looks like a Tamiya Blackfoot with bigger tires and upgraded shocks.

Im gonna say blackfoot or some truck on the same chassis with a different name(were there any for that chassis?) Its deff not a clod. The clod is 4wd and has solid axles. As for the gear... No idea. Possibly the spur? Where was it in the transmission? Its deff an old tamiya. You could probably email them with a picture of that and they can tell yo uwhat you need to get and everything. Does it have a body?
89% of Revos are racers. If your Revo can out-bash and out-run a Savage, put this in your sig.


46.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot and have no real value or truth.

Looks like the spur gear to me....if the little gear is fine, the spur comes off.

Found this on eBay
"Yes my car is technically illegal, but still its either just as fast or slower than any other car on the track so whats the issue with it being illegal?"

That is a Blackfoot, and yup it's the spur gear.

You can probably still find hte manual somewhere online. Finding the spur would be a little harder....

It should still be available for purchase, they released the truck as the Blackfoot Xtreme not that long ago. The transmission parts for the Frog and Subaru Brat should be the same as well.

I do not know if this eShop is reputable, but they have Tamiya parts...

You should be able to find them on eBay too...

Thank you all for the help, no there is no true body with it that is why I was unsure what it was. Are these any good?

Well.. the Blackfoot came out around 20 years ago.... so.. if you want to restore it to putt around the front yard.. they are ok... The gear you broke was one that I remember going out a lot...

The mechanical speed control would allow you to go from forward directly into reverse and strip out gears.. kids did this a lot.

If you want to get into r/c to bash around you might consider something from this decade... maybe a Traxxas Slash... much tougher.

Have fun!
