  1. Ciao, great job…i already got the car, the amount for the building on the video is 139 $?

    • You need 2 BuWizz units, that’s around $200, 2 buggy motors are around $120 and the rest of the parts can be bought for ~$80

  2. You can get the buggy motors now from AliExpress. I just ordered two for about AUD$15 each. From what I have read (on a EuroBricks forum) they work well with the BuWizz though I’ll believe it when I see it.

    My problem is that the BuWizz is so damned expensive for us down here at the bottom of the world (with the exchange from AUD to Euro) so I only have one of them and it really annoys that nearly every fast build needs two of them. I have the 42077 but I’m not splashing another $130 for a second BuWizz so can I still build this or is one BuWizz not enough to power 2 x Buwizz?.

    • Sorry I meant 2 x Buggy motor in my last sentence

      • I am not familiar with the Chinese buggy motor clones, but with the original ones you need 1 BuWizz per buggy motor to run them under load in high/ludicrous mode. You might be able to run 2 in normal mode but then your setup looses the point of using a BuWizz unit.

        • Ok, I see now what you mean. Guess I’ll have to budget in another BuWizz or just use the buggy motors with normal mode or regular battery box/IR controllers for now.
