Tamiya RC The Grasshopper 2005 - Item #58346

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.

The products arrived in a very solid box, were superbly packed allowing good protection with minimal material used.
Fabulous! Five stars!
Shame about Parcel Force delivery though. Tracked to be delivered on one day. Not delivered. No reason given. Arrived a day late when it wasn't expected. Parcel Force zero stars!

I found these guys through their ebay page about a year ago and I really like their selection of products. Slickshifts appear to stock the better quality stuff such as gyeon, angelwax, soft99, ik sprayers. Having gone through so many different brands I have to say between Gyeon and soft99 make up the majority of my kit and these guys are one of the best suppliers of these brands so if I need to top up on stuff, I just come straight here now :) Prices are great and delivery is very quick too. Keep up the good work!
