Tamiya Brings Back the BIGWIG!

From Tamiya:
The Tamiya one of a kind classic is back! The BIGWIG 4WD off-road buggy was released back in 1986 to commemorate 10 years of Tamiya R/C models and was the first Tamiya car with a body designed by an outside designer: Japanese full size race car designer and team owner Takuya Yura. This re-release version is based closely upon the original, with some tweaks to bring it up to date.


  • Aerodynamic body is made of lightweight and durable polycarbonate.
  • Engine and exhaust details are depicted by integrated chassis parts.
  • ABS resin bathtub-type chassis.
  • Shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain equipped with full ball bearings ensuring minimal power loss.
  • Rack and pinion steering (the only of its kind on a Tamiya model) gives excellent driving feel.
  • Boots cover the steering tie-rods, and anti-wear grease is included in the kit to seal the steering mechanism from dirt and gravel.
  • “Aerodish” 1-piece wheels are combined with oval block pattern tires for superior grip.
  • Newly designed stickers keep to the overall theme of the original.
  • Includes a GT-Tuned motor (25T) with sticker unique to the Big Wig.
