Super FM Chassis

The Super-FM Chassis (Japanese: スーパーFMシャーシ, Sūpā Efuemu Shāshi) is a Mini 4WD Chassis released by Tamiya in June 1996. It debuted with the release of Brocken Gigant. It is the Super series chassis version of the FM Chassis.

General info

Like the Super-1 Chassis, the gear box is now attached to the motor case instead of the main chassis, and the front bumper is similar to that of Super-1 Chassis's. The Super-FM Chassis now comes with the previously optional rear stay, the first chassis to do so.

However, the changes to the chassis is somewhat minor and as a result it shares many weaknesses with the FM Chassis. The propeller shaft and crown gears were unchanged for the new chassis, resulting in power loss.

Due to aforementioned problems, the chassis performs no better than its predecessor.

It was later superseded by the FM-A Chassis.
