1/10 TAMIYA RADIO CONTROL ASSEMBLY KIT - 58346
THE GRASSHOPPER
  • Ready to assemble 1:10 Scale Radio Control kit
  • 2 Wheel drive off road buggy
  • Independent Coil spring suspension featuring rear friction dampers
  • Tough ABS impact resistant body shell
  • Designed for off road running
Based on 1-seater buggies seen tearing-up dirt tracks across the U.S. in the 80's, the Grasshopper first made its appearance in R/C stores in 1984. Boasting easy assembly and easy control, the lightweight Grasshopper proved an instant hit as the perfect entry level R/C kit. Also compatible with a whole range of option parts such as 540 motor and ball bearings, the Grasshopper was an entry level car that could keep up with the owners driving experience. Packed with all the fantastic features of the original kit, this fun 2WD buggy is a blast on both off-road and on-road tracks. Whether it was your first or will be your first, the Grasshopper guarantees to please.
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. Diff loaded sealed gearbox keeps out the dirt and stones for smooth driving and cornering. Paddle style rear tires and grooved front tires combine with 3-piece assembly type wheels for excellent grip performance on dirt tracks. Half-body driver figure adds that finishing touch to a fun off-road R/C car.

Assembly
   Whilst modelling experience is helpful, Tamiya R/C kits are designed to be built by the first time modeller. All components are clearly laid out with each stage of the construction explained with exploded diagrams. The build process is fun, educational and delivers a unique insite into how real vehicles work, ensuring that the modeller has the skills to service, repairand tune up their Tamiya Radio Control model.

   Straight out of the box each model has great performance and most people probably won't feel the need to modify their model. However for those of you out there who want even better performance or to be able to fine tune your models handling characteristics then we can supply a huge range of upgraded parts.
