  The comeback of a classic! - The Bigwig (original model number 58057). The Bigwig was a 4WD buggy originally released in 1986 to commemorate 10 years of Tamiya R/C models and 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.

 Differences from the original:

  • Utilises the 25T GT-Tuned Motor
  • For use with Tamiya 7.2V and 6.6V LF battery packs
  • Sticker designs updated but keep the air of the original
  • For use with electronic speed controller
  • Anti-wear grease included to better protect rack and pinion

 Model details:

  • Scale                 1:10
  • Chassis type:    4WD
  • Length: 390mm
  • Width: 234mm
  • Height: 163mm
