TAMIYA THE BIGWIG (2017)

Ready to Go Big
The Bigwig is back! This is a 2017 version of the shaft-driven 4WD buggy that was released to commemorate 10 years of Tamiya R/C models back in 1986. It features a number of updates while keeping largely to the classic design of the original. The slimline body is that penned for the 1986 Bigwig by famed Japanese designer Takuya Yura, still a classic today, and which possesses advanced aerodynamics thanks to his encyclopaedic design knowledge. Updated markings retain the flavor of the original Bigwig, and include the Mooncraft logo of Yura's design company.


King of the Off-Road
The extremely stable shaft-driven 4WD drive train has excellent efficiency thanks to full ball bearings, while differential gears ensure cornering is smooth. 4-wheel independent double wishbone suspension employs A-shaped front and H-shaped rear arms for excellent durability, with CVA oil dampers for high-quality suspension stroke. Dish wheels are not just aesthetically pleasing, but also practical on the off-road surfaces the Bigwig (2017) calls home; they are paired with grippy oval bock tires. The rack and pinion steering setup remains unique to the Bigwig among Tamiya R/C cars.

  • The rack and pinion steering setup gives good steering response.
  • Fun details include the recreations of exhausts, engine head and more.
  • Included GT-Tuned Motor has a label specifically designed for the model.
