Tamiya is testing the Comical Grasshopper. The Grasshopper first made its appearance in R/C stores in 1984. For many, it was their very first buggy from the world of radio control kits and is still among Tamiya’s best selling models today.
Now the legend is reinterpreted as the Comical Grasshopper, with a new body inspired by the original. The body fits on a new and dedicated version of the off-road chassis WR-02CB.
