Tamiya 1/10 RC Comical Grasshopper WR-02CB (Unassembled Kit) - 58662

Tamiya 1/10 RC Comical Grasshopper WR-02CB (Unassembled Kit)

The Grasshopper is a legend among Tamiya R/C models, a 2WD buggy which debuted in 1984 and proved a huge hit with its single seater-inspired body, plus a simple chassis that responded eagerly to its driver's commands. The legend continued with the Grasshopper II in 1988, and now with this R/C model assembly kit of the new Comical Grasshopper. This R/C model assembly kit creates a 2WD buggy, with a lightweight and durable stylized polycarbonate version of The Grasshopper body. Stickers to create model markings are included, as are masking stickers for use during the paint job. There is plenty to catch the eye in the overall design too, with dual pipe parts giving an antenna motif, and parts depicting megaphone design mufflers. Separately sold LEDs can be installed for a truly awesome model!

The WR-02CB chassis is an exciting chassis at home on- and off-road, providing smooth driving and the potential for exciting wheelies! It features a pre-assembled gearbox with motor already attached to save hassle in the assembly process. Long suspension arms and CVA oil dampers make for excellent off-road performance, while under guard and side guards give great protection. A rear wheelie bar helps support the model when it leans back, maintaining a fun wheels-in-the air stance as the model plunges forward. Green and white 2-piece wheels are joined by bubble tires (front: ribbed, rear: round block) for a fun look and drive.


  • A fresh new take on a Tamiya legend - the Comical Grasshopper body is a real eye-catcher in lightweight polycarbonate.
  • Rear poles and flags, plus rounded tires give the model a unique and bubbly look that just promises plenty of fun driving!
