Firstly high to the forum.

Well Xmas brought my 9 year old a Grasshopper and sent me running for the ladders to get out my old rc cars, a Hornet, Bigwig that i converted to a Boomerang including a Beaties Bag and a trophy from Rotherham/Brinsworth buggy club, the xmas holidays has seen a complete strip down and rebuild of both but sadly i am missing a couple of parts to put the Bigwig back to its original state so if anyone has the following it would be great :-

B9 undercarriage

A12 speed controller mount

BT5 Boot Stopper x 2

Sub Chassis

A small list to say its been up there for years

Ill post some pics when I have them finished



How am i going to explain to the wife about the


Racing buggy (Ouch expensive)

Wild One

and i really should order a hotshot i spent hours on a saturday looking at them.

That just appeared in the man cave, come to think about it I’ve had the bigwig longer than the wife.

I'd advise dropping the A12 speed controller mount off the list, and getting a hobbywing 1060 esc, or for straight plug and play without soldering, pick up a tamiya esc like the tble-02s.

If your planning on keeping it stock and period correct ignore me :)

Thanks for the tip but I want to make it as original as possible I remember throwing the old mechanical speed controller because at the time I had this electronic wonder it looks like a radio shack project
