1/10 Grasshopper II 2WD Off-Road Buggy Kit (2017)

Introduction

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
  • 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 and are matched with 8-spoke one-piece lightweight wheels
  • Compatible with tune-up parts such as standard Type 540 motors and CVA mini oil dampers
  • Kit comes with 380 size motor

About The Chassis

A rugged ABS resin chassis is more than up to the stresses of off-road driving, and features lightweight durable plastic suspension arms, gearboxes and so on - the result is a lightweight and durable unit. Front swing axle and rear rolling rigid suspension combine for a responsive drive, while a fully enclosed gearbox is integrated with the rear axle and has a built-in differential gear to aid smooth cornering. One-piece wheels are paired with front grooved and rear spike tires for solid performance.
