some of you aren't familiar with the grasshopper I guess... I was under the impression EVERYONE had one at some time or another like I did lol... they were quite popular back in the day. anyway I converted the entire car to independent suspension... while trying my best to keep it looking as box stock as possible... there's been a lot more done to it than it appears... including some styrene work to rebuild the entire area around the front shock towers and where the old motor cutout used to be on the rear passenger side. then a full repaint and the factory stickers... I even painted the guy and the rollbars this time it's finished and rtr btw... and with basically pan-car gearing ( it only has a pinion and a spur with a ball diff in the center of the spur) you can bet it flies!
