I begged and begged for one of these when they came out.
Found it in my mums closet just before xmas . Good old santa

I actually got my first kiss because of a jet hopper Playing with one I found a kid down the road(at my holiday house) had a black one so we used to race them. He had a hot sister a few years older than me and I got lucky

Also had one like the yellow one above.

I have a Red Jet Hopper for Sale in almost mint condition, rear tyres - half worn down - great condition $250 U.S comes with remote - no cones - 27 Mhz.

I also have a Black Jet Hopper in working condition - complete - needs new rear tyres and does not come with a remote for $100 U.S (I might be able to find a matching crystal for generic remote I have - if I do - then I will be asking $200 for the Black one (40 Mhz).

I can be contacted on email address upd_@hotmail.com or via this return thread and payment can be made via PayPal.

Please email me for a photo ...

Sincerely

Shane.

Have you seen the movie The Castle? There's a line in the movie that comes to mind when you offer me these cars at that sort of price. Do you know the one?

To me its a scam. I may be wrong, but Says he wants US money. Yet his name is shaneinau? Newbie as well. I also received an email overnight wanting $149 for it. Also from a different email address. But amazingly the guys name is Shane. Think ill pass on this one.

Still keen on the hoppers if anyone has them running or not or even in pieces

My Jet hopper

Hi,

sorry for my english, im spanish, but i want to write u because u r looking for a Jet hopper. As i see the model of Jet hopper that was brought to Spain was very different to the Australian one. The one that i have is very strange, ive watched videos on youtube and all of them are different to the one i have. I was thinking on changing the engine of it but i dont know if u could be interested on my rc, in that case i would hear offers.

I will take pics of my Jet jopper.

I just had a bit of a brain melt and paid $340 for this AS NEW Jet Hopper. JDM version in the Japper box, not the Metro ADM clear fronted box.

I'm about to take it for a run on Gosch's Paddock, then it will get cleaned and put in the pool room

Ah the memories...

That's sick man. I was almost keen to buy that but eneded up buying a brand new one somewhere else. If I was you I wouldn't use it. If you want a car to scratch and damage pm me I'll sell you one. If you damage that car it will half in value easy. If not more!

Anyway I'm always buying guys so let me know if you wanna sell up

Thanks for posting that picture of the Lex fake Jet Hopper. You've probably already come across this if googling, but I have a site about vintage R/C - including a lot of details about the ready to run models like the Jet Hopper...
www.rctoymemories.com

My article about the Tyco Turbo Hopper release
http://rctoymemories.com/2012/05/06/...o-hopper-1986/

My article about the original Taiyo Jet Hopper release
http://rctoymemories.com/2014/06/08/...t-hopper-1986/

I also may be able to find more new old stock hoppers in future (I sold one recently) as I do come across a lot of things due to having a site like that
No guarantees, but never know.
