Grasshopper Offroad Racer Kit

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 oil shocks, a 540 motor and ball bearings, the Grasshopper was an entry level car that could keep up with the owner's 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 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 shocks, and independent swing axle front and rigid axle rear suspensions. A sealed gearbox keeps out dirt and stones for smooth driving and cornering. Paddle style rear tires and grooved front tires combine with 3-piece assembly type wheels for superior control and handling.
