Also my 1st buggy way back in 88, Loving the blue.
Original or rere?
The Etronix is pretty easy to set up & has 15 model memory only problem I have with it is the actual sticks, the ends are for some reason sharp & jagged but they screw off so im gonna file em down.
Original or rere?
Thank you for the comments guys @ Crash Cramer I've read on the forums that a few people are still using them to race with & I can definately see why :). @ Origineelclamebord the motor is re buildable but the car came in a rere box & came with a rere manual but im happy either way as this is a cracking car. The rubber seal on my MDC cap is perished & in 2 parts luckily I've not been on the dirt yet just tarmac ( Dirt is all from previous owner ) Gonna have to see if I can get any of those as all 4 of the shock seals are going the same way :(. Just checked all the screws & found that im missing one BB3 screw from the front steering mount but other than that I love this car :)

Just been looking at TRF stickers on the bay and found a set that looks like these. Search for these 'TAMIYA TRF Logo Sticker Set MM024' These look like the blue edged ones from the set.

I love that bodyshell it looks mean where did you get it?
I thought these had gone in the bin
Thank you Jim I totally messed up the body though I tried painting the Chevy signs front & back but messed it up so just painted it all silver :( I was 13 or 14 at the time though.
This is a great example of my 1st & favourite Tamiya I love running mine in the summer brings back loadsa memories from when I was 11 back in '88' Great Work :)
Not perfect, but still awesome: astute
Great Buggy makes me want to get round to sorting mine out I've had to put it on hold till the New Year.
Great collection I actually have fond memories of these models, the hours I used to spend ogling them in the tamiya catalogues I used to have when I was a teen. Thank you for sharing!

From the look of the helmet it's Damon Hill. Great Car!
Top force mongrel
Thank you for the comments, im really happy it's been confirmed the chassis is a genuine Tamiya one. I remember it was it was your showroom I read about the little C stamp Origineelreclamebord while I was drooling over your Dyna Storms :). I already have lots of parts ready to start the project.
Yeah, another gunmetal top force .....
I've always liked the paint scheme on this since I 1st saw it in Muratti's showroom.
10th anniversary masterpiece?
Always a pleasure to see a Bigwig on here. It looks great. I always enjoy running mine.
Will be a light runner
Looks great it's always nice to see a Bigwig, Great find.
