The Super Sabre Junior (Japanese: スーパーセイバーJr., Sūpā Seibā Junia) is a Racing Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya on May 16, 1988. It is based on the Super Sabre 1/10 scale R/C buggy by the same company.

It was featured in the manga Mini 4 Top as Toppu Kudo's first machine. It was replaced by the Rising Bird in the series.

General info

The Super Sabre featuring the typical R/C buggy body design, with sharp nose and removable flat rear spoiler on the bodyshell. Front monoshock and upper-arms as well as rear dual damper props were presented on the bodyshell.

It was mainly in silver, with red and black trims on it.

The original Super Sabre is equipped with the medium diameter 4-spoke Hotshot-type wheel with the black high-profile spike tires, which the RS variant was equipped with the silver plated large diameter 5-spoke TZ-type wheels with the black Avante-type slick tires. The RS variant is equipped with a pair of 16 mm plastic rollers on the front. Both models has their chassis and A parts molded in black.

About the Super Sabre 1/10 R/C Buggy

Released in 1987, the Super Sabre is the entry-level hobby-grade R/C buggy and is a sister car to the Boomerang and shares the same chassis. It is the last Hotshot-based R/C buggy to be released.

The only difference is that the rear CVA dampers were changed to the shorter ones.

Since it use the same chassis as the Boomerang, it also has the same flaws; noticable power loss, poor handling, improper internal sealing and others.
