The grasshopper was my first car, I quickly upgraded to a 540 motor. The Frog came out just after I did that and I bought one. It was a great car and I had a lot of success racing it in the early to mid 80's. I'll post a couple pics tomorrow.

I had a World Engines Rockbuster as my first car, which was identical to the Grasshopper. I loved that car so much. It was just so much fun, especially after I put a 540 in it.

Its cool that you have yours running. It looks mint in the video. Have you had it since new? I used to run a grasshopper and had a lot of fun with it. Back then they seemed so fast. A friend of mine has vintage car, he cant remember what it is. Hopefully it can be pried from his fingers.

Great looking classics. My first rc was a Tamiya Striker. I wish. They would bring that one back.
