The Grasshopper II is one of Tamiya's iconic radio control car kits from the late 1980's. It was an enhanced follow-up release to the original Grasshopper kit. This re-release (2017) kit features a number of updates while keeping largely faithful to the original model. Its streamlined construction process makes this kit perfect for less experienced users and R/C veterans alike, while separately sold option parts can be used to enhance the model.

Features

  • The Grasshopper II body is molded in durable white polystyrene resin.
  • Includes a driver figure for attachment to the body.
  • Features a rugged ABS resin bathtub chassis to withstand the rough-and-tumble fun of off-road driving.
  • Front swing axle and rear rolling rigid suspension setups are actuated by coil-spring friction dampers.
  • Includes the Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC (brushless motor and brushed motor compatible)
  • Fully enclosed rear gearbox contains a differential gear to aid smooth cornering.
  • Front ribbed tires give great straight-line grip, and rear spike tires provide powerful drive. They are matched with 8-spoke one-piece lightweight wheels.
  • Compatible with tune-up parts such as standard Type 540 motors (requires nine 1150 ball bearings & one 850 ball bearing) and CVA mini oil dampers.
