  1. Late 1980s I think. Looks like it's in working order output 9v on my meter, but don't have any NiCd battery to confirm. Free to collect from Bristol.
  2. Brand new, removed from kit. Incudes manual. £15 posted Pay Pal gift
  3. Big thanks to Futura for posting me this part gratis. What a nice person.
  4. Thanks, might do. But I have 380 motors in my box and I like to recycle!
  5. Hello, I'd like to get hold of the 380 motor mount for the DT02 Holiday Buggy. Part number H3. I want to fit a 380 in my DT03 for small children to use. Maybe someone fitted a 540 and didn't use the 380 mount? Thank for looking in your spares. Ben
  6. Cheers guys! I went and bought the A parts sprue. I found springs and damper rods in the spares box so nearly there. It can drive now but I would like to get hold of the C11 washers that support the springs under the uprights. My experience running 1990s Tamiya mini oil shocks in the GH2 resulted in broken uprights on the chassis. They might have been sticky or over -sprung/damped though. I wonder if the DT03 oil shocks might be better.
  7. Hi Doc, Thanks for the offer. I've realised the GH 1 set up is quite different to the gh2. I'll probably try and get the a and c parts online. Cheers Ben
  8. This is how the original is arranged. I can find a way to fit the more usual front shock eg from the later chassis DT range. They need next to no damping and a mild spring rate. I have the springs but missing the C11 part, and also the A2 attached to the swingarm. I'd be interested in anything really, although I have since found the DT01 front dampers at Tonys Tamiya parts if nothing secondhand surfaces. As an aside, I've got my friend to print this out for me (Thingiverse), might help fit any small shock: Thanks
  9. Any discarded items cluttering up your spares boxes after hop-ups?
  10. Hello, I'm refurbishing my 1991 Grasshopper 2 but have lost the front dampers. It's a runner, so I don't need the original part necessarily. I wondered if anyone might have some friction units to get rid of. I can surely get parts on ebay, but thought these things might be out there looking for new homes. I guess other suitable donors would be Grasshopper 1, Hornet, Rising Fighter, DT02 DT03 (non-oil) Happy to pay postage + a beer/coffee thanks for reading Ben
  11. I’m sure this is disgraceful, but I just leave the 2.4Ghz aerial loose under the shell, perhaps a little tape to prevent it getting snapped or caught somewhere. Much easier than the 27Mhz whips.
  12. Well, I was a kid at the time, and had obviously put the 540 and 7.2v battery in there...possibly even the Parma super stock.
  13. As I remember, the original grasshopper bumper snapped pretty easily. My early 90s example has an aftermarket bumper which was far better. a little off topic here, but has anyone tried fitting the grasshopper 380 motor to the dt03? I guess I’m a bit weird by wantin to go slower, not faster! But less mass and less speed = less broken stuff.
