The Super-1 Chassis (Japanese: スーパー１シャーシ, Sūpā Wan Shāshi) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in June 1993. It was first released with the release of Liberty Emperor. It is the further improved version of Zero Chassis.
Being a evolution to the Zero Chassis, the Super-1 Chassis shares many parts with it, but the main chassis parts is a major different between the two.
First, the front bumper has been redesigned and as the result it lowered the roller's height. The side-guard attachment on the main chassis part has also improved. Every kits with Super-1 Chassis comes with a side-guard, and user can decides whetever use it or not.
Despite these improvements, the chassis's structure, especially the front bumper, are still weak (but not to that of Zero Chassis), necessitating the use of reinforced parts (i.e. FRP plate).
The design was later further improved into Super-II Chassis.
