Here's an original Grasshopper that I decided to give a military look. As with every GH or Hornet I've ever built, I immediately ground off the front bumper mounts to better showcase Tamiya's wonderful front end design (Not so functional, but good-looking). I also like the look of the RR wheels on the GH, so I added a set (still cheap from TamiyaUSA). GHs understeer horribly, so 540 power and 7.2V is necessary to even think about breaking the rear tires loose in the dirt. Grasshoppers aren't that good off road, but they make great flat trackers, and are fun to slide a drift. I'll probably add some more decals and hung-on tools, etc., and bash it around on a dusty infield, but for now you get the idea.
