Comical Frog decals done, and managed to hide (or distract from) some of the paint defects.  I'm kinda thinking the Frog Racing decal on the roof would've looked better on the bonnet, replacing the Tamiya pseudo "NGK" decal.
I've left the front body posts un-cut, to give some rollover protection.  Will trim them down eventually.

Already had a few runs.  It is a fun car to drive, when my daughter lets me, and it does pop nice wheelies.  Also does nice backflips too if you stop to fast when reversing at full speed.  So I think the wheelie bar will get swapped around.

Brings back a lot of great memories of me and my daughter running her pink VW Bug into every stationary object in sight! LOL  

Wonderful job and good to see Dads doing this with their children..

Lights done.  The driver voted for blue LED's as they were brighter than the purple.
They are non-diffused, so very bright front on.

UV purple leds are dangerous for eyes. I bought some monthes ago, but don't use them. Too bright for eyes and no real purple effect. Blue are nicer. For me.

My son finished the Rising Fighter about a week ago, but we've been waiting for his replacement controller.  So on the w'end I set him up with my Rx/Tx.
Considering it's his first RC and did most of it himself, including the decals, it came out alright.
 
 


About an hour later, i have no idea what was going through the boys brain.  But must have been something about testing the impact strength of concrete kerbs.
He walks in the door asking if i could fix his car as it was broken.  Luckily it is all fixable.  But for now, it's packed away.

Yeh, most of the parts are the Grasshopper 2.  The front arms are same as my Super Hornet.
