  • Description
  • The Tamiya Grasshopper Off-Road Buggy Kit is an iconic model and was the "first kit" owned by many modern day enthusiasts. The Grasshopper first made its appearance in R/C stores in 1984 and was based on the single seat buggies seen tearing-up dirt tracks across the U.S. in the 80's. Easy to assemble and easy to drive, the lightweight Grasshopper was an instant hit. Packed with all the fantastic features found on the original kit, this fun 2WD buggy is a blast on both off-road and on-road tracks.

    The perfect combination of simple assembly and tough exterior is what made the Grasshopper so special. Durable plastic body is fastened to bathtub resin monocoque chassis by screws, creating a solid frame that can absorb any type of rough handling. Off-road tracks can be tackled with ease thanks to coil spring dampers, and independent swing axle front and rigid axle rear suspension. A sealed gearbox keeps the dirt and stones out of the differential and gears for smooth driving and cornering. Paddle style rear tires and grooved front tires combine with 3-piece assembly type wheels provide excellent grip on dirt tracks. Plus, the half-body driver figure, affectionately referred to as Frank Evans adds that finishing touch to a classic R/C car.
