VS Chassis.

The VS Chassis (Japanese: VSシャーシ, Byīesu Shāshi) is a Mini 4WD chassis released by Tamiya in February 1999. According to the manga Mini 4WD Fighter V, the 'VS' stands for 'Victory Sprint'.

It debuted with the release of Blazing-Max.

General info Edit

The VS Chassis has the wheelbase of 80 mm, which is the same as most of the Mini 4WD chassis.

The chassis continues the 'compact and lightweight chassis' concept that was brought by the Super-1 Chassis, with the VS Chassis having the batteries placed even lower than that of the Super-1 and the gear cover is now attached to the chassis instead of the motor case. The front bumper is in the W-shaped with multiple screw holes for parts attachment. Power transmission efficiency has further polished and has surpassed that of the Super-1 Chassis's. Those improvements makes the VS Chassis one of the high-performance chassis available.

However, it has few weaknesses; The front bumper is weak and prone to breakage, the chassis frame itself is too soft and may lead to power loss in certain circuits if the chassis twists too much. VS Chassis machines tend to course out if they enter the corner too fast while they were equipped with the front O-ring rollers.

Overall, the performance is similar to the Super-II Chassis, but with less adaptability.

It was superseded by the VZ Chassis.
