     Tyco CC-025 Chassis. This is a slightly revised version of the CC-02 chassis that addressed some more short comings. This chassis was in production for 1982.

     Screws were added to secure the body onto the chassis. One problem with slot-less is when they leave the track they become missiles. The bodies would routinely separate from the chassis during crashes and they could break either the body or chassis or both.

    By securing the body with screws Tyco addressed a few problems.

  • Kids burning fingers on the hot motor when re-assembling after a crash.
  • Stiffened up the chassis and prevented the issue with sagging around the motor pod.
  • reduced damage by protecting the chassis axle and tires. reduced body breakage as well.

       No change to the front bumper at all. Steering pivot and motor pod all the same.

     Chassis contact shoes, springs, front and rear tires all the same as the CC-02.

 

     Because of the additional Screws to secure the body Tyco had to have new molds made of all the old bodies to add the additional front and rear screw mounts. This severely limited the amount of available bodies for the Command control chassis.

     Command control ended with the CC-025 chassis it was phased out of production in 1982.

     After driving this chassis for a while I have come to like it the best. The screws that hold the body on really stiffen the chassis up and make it handle much better then the early cars.
