DOES ANYBODY HAVE A TAMIYA GRASSHOPPER II CHASSIS AND BATTERY COVER ????
I got a grasshopper II when i was seven. My sister fiddled with it and cooked the battery melting and warping much of the bathtub chassis. She refuses to repay me.
I have decided to restore it. I am about a quarter the way through the restoration process. I found a chassis at cash converters but they refused to sell the individual part to me. (They wanted 300 AUD for a box of broken rubbish, that happened to have the chassis)
I am prepared to pay cash for these parts.

No, im in tassie, but im happy to pay for shipping.
It must be in reasonable condition, with little wear, as it is a restoration job.
A few scratches on the underbody doesn’t matter too much…as this happens.
Do you have the battery cover?

Just had a look at it, it’s in not to bad shape except for some grinding at the rear, and a broken nose from high speed impact with a few gutters.
II’m uploading the photos to a Gallery, you can check them out and see if there is anything you want. Then make me an offer.
The gallery is here:
and although it’s not pictured.. yes I DO have the battery cover.

Hmmm. Thanks for being honest, but im a bit worried with the cracks in the front and the broken suspension strut. It looks like you wanted tosell the whole thing rather than just the chassis.

No probs… i had forgotten just how damaged it was 🙁

Thanks for trying.
