I like to do a race with Grasshopper.
But now rivals are stronger faster than old time rivals,
so I must improve this car on the race.
If you want to know this car, please check 'Project G' in my web page.

Absolutly awsome bit of re-engineering,looks completly gorgerous,well done .I have an old grass hopper and would love to do what you have done!

Thanks Ben,
I think that you can get high performance by more simple way with the original drive train too.
You need to cut the hose and original straight axle-shaft and fasten the Kyosho's drive cup to the shaft.
When using TB EVO's or TL01LA's arms for it, TA04's universal-joints are suitable.

Now if I had a Grasshopper like this when I was a kid, maybe I could have beat up some of the RC10's!!!! Great conversion, what car is the gear box from?

Mr Grahoo, I forgot to mention that this Grasshopper you built has been in my Favorites section for 2 years now! Nice work, I owed you a thumbs up on this a long time ago. This is brilliant, it was part of the inspiration for my F-1 G.Hopper contest entry last year!
