Type-5 Chassis

The Type-5 Chassis (タイプ5シャーシ) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya with the release of Dash-CB1 Geo Emperor.

This chassis fixed the chassis structure problem that plagues the previous Type series chassis. The chassis's structure is now strengthen despite being light-weight. The chassis's wheelbase is 82 mm long.

The rear hardpoint design layer is changed and is compatible with the rear roller stays that are made to later chassis.

However, there's one weakness: due to using the wider 2 mm width propeller shaft and orange ground gears, the chassis has mild power losses compared to the other chassis at that time.

The chassis was overshadowed by the Zero Chassis which was released earlier than the Type-5, and the chassis was not well-known until the release of Super Avante, which was featured in the manga and anime series Bakusou Kyodai Let's & Go! that was serializes during the second Mini 4WD boom.
