Tamiya Grasshopper Vintage Advertisement

HUGE THANKS to Mike Haswell for sending us these vintage RC car ads!

In this vintage RC car advertisement we get a look at the Tamiya Grasshopper! If you're one of those who have always wanted a genuine Tamiya off road buggy, but thought you'd have to settle for a toy like imitation, take advantage of the Grasshopper. As the pioneers in off road, we've just taken the sport a leap ahead, by offering Tamiya quality and high performance features at a new price level. And only we could, because we are the leaders.

What the competition hasn't learned is that to keep the price low and still keep quality up you have to be a Tamiya. We will do it no other way...because we're here for the long haul. We've made off road fun by making off road buggies right.

Super Champ, Wild Willy, The Frog, The Subaru Brat, all built to last. Engineered to lead. And now the Tamiya Grasshopper. Born to jump...customize it and it'll fly. From the sleek, lightweight aerodynamic body design to the rugged easy to assemble monocoque body and chassis, the Grasshopper is quality Tamiya.

A swing axle independent front suspension and rigid swing axle rear suspension with two large coil springs smooth out the bumps and keep the wheels on the road. Huge paddle type rear sand tires provide the traction, while grooved front competition tires make for excellent handling in tight turns. Differential gearing adds smooth responsive steering and great traction.

A soup up design. The magic of the Tamiya Grasshopper doesn't end with quicker assembly, ow price, and engineering quality...it has a beautiful extra dimension...it was designed to be souped up. You can easily tune it up with the addition of high performance parts by simply adding the RS540S or the Racing Black motor, as well as ball bearings and oill filled shocks. The Tamiya Grasshopper is everything you've wanted, at the price you've waited for.
