Super TZ Chassis

The Super TZ Chassis (スーパーTZシャーシ) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in 1996. It debuted with the release of Cyclone Magnum.

General info

The Super TZ Chassis has the wheelbase of 82 mm, which is the same as the Type-2, Type-4 and Type-5 Chassis.

The chassis has lower center-of-gravity due to the batteries being placed at even lower than that of Super-1 Chassis and Super-FM Chassis. The front bumper was redesigned to improve its rigidity, and like Super-1 Chassis, it is equipped with 1.4 mm propeller shaft and pink ground gears. The default gear cover was designed in a way that it will compatible with 3.5:1 and 3.7:1 gear sets.

The side-guards has now became part of the chassis and are no longer removable. Like Super-FM Chassis, it comes with the optional rear roller stay. All Super TZ Chassis cars were equipped with wide-tread wheels, which improves the chassis' stability.

This chassis is also the first to use ABS plastic, while previous ones used an unintdentfied (likely regular) plastic.

Compared to Super-FM Chassis, the Super TZ Chassis has better acceleration performance. Otherwise (and the fact that Super TZ is a rear-motor chassis), all other stats are the same as Super-FM.

It was later updated into Super TZ-X Chassis and both chassis's successor is the AR Chassis.
