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.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
