Hi guys hows tricks? I have finished this very enjoyable build and l think this is the first built Grasshopper 2 Black Edition on the TC? I got to say and l am loving this version of the Hopper 2 and as said previously for the money what a cracking deal.
This will be run and l actually bought this especially for some beach fun its ideal and great for that nostalgic buzz and has a half decent but very fun performance! its had a few extras added! I have waterproofed it obviously! it also got a 21t motor, well greased ballraces, l have locked the diff and has a different driver figure that will stop so much sand going into the buggy oh yeah I also have some proline slingshots coming soon!
Should be a right old hoot!!
Hope you like this Hopper and thanks for looking in, comments welcome all the best cheers James.

Update....20/7/21
Had this out for a good test today on grass and the locked diff was fine no problems and everything ran great! 3D printing is really amazing! Hopefully will get time and go to the beach next week for a blast!

I must say, it turned out very well !!
And as usual, most of us are probably jealous of the beach you can run your Tamiya's on!

Looks awesome mate! I've got one arriving tomorrow! Might put a Sport Tuned motor in it, not sure yet, but I'm definitely gonna be using red wheel nuts again too. Nice!

Very tidy. The gold and orange on black has a nice retro look (IMO)
