Hop II It!
This re-release version of The Grasshopper II R/C off-road car assembly kit features a number of updates while keeping largely to the design of the original released in 1988. It includes a highly realistic injection molded polystyrene resin body, marking stickers and a driver figure. The chassis' streamlined construction and use of a Type 380 motor makes the kit perfect for less experienced users. It is compatible with separately sold race spec Hop-Up Option parts such as Type 540 motors and CVA oil dampers.

A Durable Off-Road 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.
