Type-2 Chassis

The Type-2 Chassis (タイプ2シャーシ) is the second Type Chassis released by Tamiya in 1989 with the release of Avante Jr.

General info

The chassis is different than the Type-1 Chassis as it was designed purely for on-road track racing. Large wheels, low-profile slick tires as well as guide rollers are standards for this chassis.

It also introduce the use of brass/plastic bearings, which are the standard for future chassis and can be replaces with either metal bearings or ball bearings.

The motor mount and gear box are redesigned so it will be very easy to maintaines the motor and gears. Battery clipper is now standard with this chassis. There's also the holes on around the chassis to dissipates heats from the motor and batteries.

The chassis was redesigned so it will have minimal power losses, which was the problem that plagues the Type-1 Chassis. In addition, the chassis has lower center-of-gravity as the inner parts are placed lower.

While it may be good for racing, it has few problems: The first is that most bodies designed for Type-1 Chassis are not compatible with the new chassis due to having longer wheelbase and the way how the motor is placed. Secondly, it is not compatible with some tune-up parts at the time of its release. Finally, its front bumper, much like every Type series chassis, is prone to breaks.

Performance-wise, it performs better than the Type-1, despite this it have poor acceleration performance due to its long wheelbase (which are shared with Type-4 Chassis, Super-TZ Chassis and Super-TZ-X Chassis)

The design of Type-2 would later updated into Type-4 Chassis.

Technical info

Length/Width/Wheelbase: 128 mm/86 mm/82 mm
Ground clearance: Unknown
Driveshaft's length: 60 mm
Compatible gear set(s): 5:1, 4.2:1, 4:1
Terminal type: B-type terminal
Weight (Chassis frame only): Unknown
