Tamiya have introduced the new The Grasshopper II Candy Green Edition 2WD buggy kit. The Grasshopper is a 2WD racing buggy well-loved by beginners and veterans alike for its ease of assembly and excellent drivability, and at home both on- and off-road. Now, its durable plastic one-piece molded body comes in the vivid and glossy TS-52 Candy Lime Green color, and has been given a top-coat to really make sure that it is resistant to wear and tear. Apply the stickers and hook up the lights, and the body is ready to go! Paint the included driver torso figure as you like for the final touch.

The perfect combination of simple assembly and tough exterior is what made the Grasshopper so special. Durable resin body is fastened to bathtub resin monocoque chassis by screws, creating a solid frame that can absorb any type of rough terrain. 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 on dirt tracks.
