Default Name that vintage RC!!! Need help identifying a couple vintage cars

My neighbor gave me a box of vintage RC's so I thought I'd see if there was anything in there worth keeping. Otherwise I'll pass it along to the next guy. One of the 4wd cars is chain driven!!

Red one on the right looks like a modified Tamiya Frog. Same chassis and gear box.

Yup, blue body is a frog, and the red chassis is the blackfoot.

Anyone know what the the second from the right is? Its 4wd belt driven. even has a sway bar out back.

4th one looks like a Yokomo YZ-870C/YZ10 aswell, with a jammin jay top deck and maybe with an RPM front bulkhead, with longer shocks, truck wheels and truck body mounts

and here I thought I was going to get crap about posting better pictures and blah blah blah. Thanks for the info guys. Now I have to decide what to do with them.

The frog is pretty much complete with a mechanical speed control and everything!
