    Tamiya RC Grasshopper 58346

    1/10

    Description

    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.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.Specifications_Length: 389mm, width: 223mm, height: 135mm, weight: 830g _380 type motor (chassis compatible with 540 type motor - sold separately) _Transmission Type: Rear 2 Wheel Drive _Independent swing axle front suspension, rolling rigid axle rear suspension, friction dampers _Sealed rear gearbox to protect diff gear during off-road running _3-piece assembly wheel, straight ribbed racing front tires, paddle rear tires _Front and rear axle compatible with ball bearings (sold separately)
