This is a radio control car assembly kit, which requires preparation and assembly. Additional items such as radio gear, servo, batteries and charger are required for operation (sold separately).

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.
