Super-II Chassis

Super-II Chassis

The Super-II Chassis (スーパーIIシャーシ) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in 2010, with the release of Magnum Saber Premium. The chassis is the further improved version of the Super-1 Chassis.

General info

The main chassis parts, especially the front bumper, has been reinforced. The front bumper has also extended and added few attachment holes for the use of grade-up parts. The battery switch has been changed from slide-type to rotate-type, and the battery clip's design was also changed to the much more rigid one. There's also the newer hard-points for rear stay parts, as seen in Super X Chassis and later chassis.

Some kits came with the Side-Guard EX attachment which can be installed on under the middle of the chassis.

Performance-wise, it behaves similar to that of VS Chassis, except that Super-II Chassis has greater expandability than VS Chassis.

Trivia

  • A while after the release of Super-II Chassis, there were complaints that the screw that holds the gearbox would become loose due of frequent removes and reattaches. Tamiya would includes the easy locking gear cover (originally a Grade-Up Parts) as standard in every Super-II Chassis cars starting with Dash-1 Emperor Premium.
  • This is the first Mini 4WD chassis to be recalled. Soon after the release of Magnum Saber Premium, Tamiya discovered the mold defects on the chassis and recalled all of the original Magnum Saber Premium kits. This since has been fixed with the second mold revision.
