Product Description

This is the 1/10 scaleGrasshopper Off-Road Buggy Kit from Tamiya. Based on the 1-seater buggies that were seen tearing up dirt tracks across the U.S. in the 80's, the Grasshopper first hit the stores in 1984. Proudly easy to assemble and easy to control, the lightweight Grasshopper proved to be an instant hit as the ideal entry level RC buggy kit. Fully compatible with a whole range of option parts like 540 motors and ball bearings, the Grasshopper is an entry level kit that is capable of keeping up your level of experience. Jam-packed with all of the great features of the original 1984 kit, this 2WD buggy is great to drive on both on- and off-road tracks. Whether it was your first or will be your first, the Grasshopper aims to please.
