BIG BEAR

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Just joined this forum, I've been into rc's for a little while now as mainly as a basher with nitro & electric.

Long story short, now I'm the proud owner of a original tamiya big bear that a mate from my work GAVE me 

Everything works fine, but because it's been sitting for so long 2 of the tires are ripped & flat.

I'm in need of some replacement ones. If you can help please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Lorensze

There's only one type of Big Bear AFAIK, and that's the Marui one. Tamiya never did one.

It' only a basic buggy but with the big wheels, it will go anywhere. I had one for a while, gave it loads of abuse and never broke anything.

Hey mate, I have a couple of Big Bear tyres somewhere that I'll never use.... not new, but no use to me, as I sent all my BB stuff away a year or two ago. Happy to donate them to the project... what part of Melbourne are you in?
