As I mentioned in the reveiw of this car, you either love it or hate it. I rather fancy mine. It is not much to write about as a car, suspension is rather ordinary, has different colered shock collars to keep with the cartoon theme. The rear end is a big improvement over the Grasshopper 11 however. The only hop-up for this car is an alloy motor mount plate, which is also the gearbox plate and it stiffens everything up nicely. Other than that, it is bone stock. I bought it from huffmiester in the UK, and he had painted the body silver. The stickers are large, and many compound curves. I have discovered, quite by accident, but I am sure the 'pro's' know this already, that a little heat from the shrink tube gun will make the most difficult sticker lay flat. I learned this on a Michilin Pilot that has over a hundred stickers, and was by far and away one of the most difficult bodies I have done. More on that later. I painted the driver red and white to match the car, ran her across the carpet once and parked it in the display case, which is going to be doubled in size in the next few weeks. These don't seem to come up too often and I doubt they were that popular. It is not in the same class as the Holly Grail cars, but with the Madcap and Fire Dragon, the 'cartoon series' has been fun to collect and build.
