  1. Hi folks, I've been talking to my son about doing a Monster Beetle conversion on his re-re Grasshopper for a while now. Just checking if there are any 'gotchas'? Do the larger wheels put too much load on the steering and gearbox? We put a 540 in it which has given it good boost in power and speed. However it doesn't have enough ground clearance on the lawn and often gets hung up in thick grass. I thought the balloon tyres would help lift it and improve the springy suspension slightly too. So far the Grasshopper has been a great first car for my 6 year old - very durable and looks great! I am considering the following two options... Option 1 - Lunchbox Get the Frog Hex adapters Install Lunchbox front axles as they are longer Lunchbox wheels and tyres Option 2 - Monster Beetle Monster Beetle wheels and tyres. I guess I'll still need the longer Lunchbox axles on the front for this option too. As far as I know the rear Monster Beetle wheels have the same adapter as the Grasshopper. Has anyone done one of these conversions and had good/bad results?
