Product Description

Second batch is due in May.

Tamiya has confirmed that the iconic Bigwig will be released again this year as a 2017 re-release edition. We are expecting to see stock late Feburary.  If you wish to place a deposit over the phone please contact us directly on 01322 865111.  We are one of the South-East's largest Tamiya R/C Model Shops, with a great range in stock in the shop.  

Released in July 1986, on the 10th anniversary of Tamiya’s first RC, the Bigwig was a landmark in the development of Tamiya RC racing cars and remains highly prized as a collectors’ car for its unique design. This was the first Tamiya car with a body penned 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. This unique car featured a rack and pinion steering system and distinctive Moon Dish wheels. The body styling was innovative, and as all Tamiya kits were, easy to build and good value for money.

  • This is a 1/10 scale R/C model assembly kit. Length: 390mm, width: 234mm, height: 163mm.
  • Aerodynamic body is lightweight and durable polycarbonate. Engine and exhausts are depicted by chassis parts.
  • Utilizes a sturdy ABS resin bathtub-type chassis.
  • Shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain for excellent stability off-road, with full ball bearings ensuring minimal power loss.
  • 4-wheel double wishbone suspension with CVA oil dampers lets the car tackle bumpy surfaces.
  • Rack and pinion steering (unique to this Tamiya model) gives excellent driving feel. Boots cover the steering tie-rods, and anti-wear grease is included in the kit to seal the mechanism from dirt and gravel.
  • Aerodish 1-piece wheels are combined with oval block pattern tires for superior grip.
  • Stickers have been redesigned while keeping to the overall theme of the original.
  • Includes a GT-Tuned motor (25T) with sticker unique to this model.
  • ESCs 22mm and lower in height can be fitted in the kit standard position.

N.B. - Final Specification to be confirmed.

I used to race this car at eden park overlanders back in the late 80s and it was an awesome car. I regretted selling it then so have already ordered one for a shelf queen.
