Super X Chassis

The Super X Chassis (Japanese: スーパーXシャーシ, Sūpā Ekkusu Shāshi) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in December 1997. It debuted with the release of Max Breaker.

General info Edit

The Super X Chassis has the rigid, wide multi-subframe chassis frame. It has the wheelbase of 84 mm and the tread of 70 mm (when equipped with with large-diameter narrow wheels.), which makes the chassis more stable on cornering and jumping as well as increases the straight line speed, at the expense of cornering speed.

Unlike previous chassis, the propeller shaft and the orange crown gears were placed in transversely reversed layout, and use the longer 1.4mm wide propeller shaft instead of the 2.0mm one. it is the first Mini 4WD chassis to employ the 72 mm driveshafts.

The motor can be remove from under the chassis by removing the motor underpanel, allowing simple motor swapping. In addition to the center rear hardpoint, there's two additional screw holes on the rear which are also used to attach the rear roller stay.

All Super X Chassis machines were equipped with the wheels specifically designed for the chassis. It was later updated into Super XX Chassis.
