The Truckin' Chassis (Japanese: トラッキンシャーシ, Torakkin Shāshi) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in December 1990. It was first equipped with the Sunny-Shuttle.

General info Edit

Being a retool of the Type-3 Chassis, it retains many aspects of the Type-3 but with few key differences.

The bodycatch type has been changed from the rear-mounted type to the side-mounted type. To compensate the lacks of side-guards, the chassis has its own, removable rear roller stay for installing guide rollers.

Since it retains most aspects of the Type-3 Chassis, many parts designed for it are compatible with the chassis. However, because of the presences of the rear roller stay, it cannot be equipped with other rear roller stays.

Just like the Type-1 and Type-3, it has the light blue G1 crown gear attached to the front axle and the orange G2 crown gear attached to the rear axle. The Truckin' Chassis was the last shaft-driven Mini 4WD chassis to have such crown gear setup, as all future shaft-driven Mini 4WD chassis would uses the same crown gear for both front and rear axles.
