The Grasshopper first made it's appearance in R/C stores in 1984. It is based on the 1 seater buggies seen tearing up dirt tracks across the US. 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 oil dampers, 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 makes the Grasshopper so special. The durable plastic body is fastened to a 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. The diff loaded sealed gearbox keeps out the dirt and stones for smooth driving and cornering. The paddle style rear tyres and grooved front tyres combine with 3-piece assembly type wheels for excellent grip performance on dirt tracks. A half body driver figure adds that finishing touch to a fun off-road R/C car.

This is a fun car it has the old paddle track tyres which look cool.
The car comes with a smaller than standard motor (380) but all you have to do is take out the adapter plate, and you can put in the normal 540 size motor!
The chassis is not the strongest about but will still take a bit of hammering!
The shell is not PC so you can paint on your own design easily!
Great car for modding.
