The visual for the manga shows Mota Kudo, the main character of the story holding up his Road Spirit (VZ Chassis) Laser Mini 4WD race car.

The manga revolves around kids racing these Laser Mini 4WD cars with each other.

Laser Mini 4WD are toy race cars released by Tamiya Toys. Tamiya had revealed the new mini race car line before the start of the manga. The first car, Mota Kudo’s Road Spirit will be available for purchase on 28th August 2021. This new lineup was designed by Hiroyuki Takei himself.

This isn’t the first time he is working with Tamiya’s 4WD franchise. His previous work Hyper Dash! Yonkuro is a spinoff to the original manga series for the franchise.

Although the manga is aimed at kids, it has the potential to grow worldwide. Looking at franchises associated with toys like Beyblade and Bakugan, this is not a far-fetched thought!

This could very well be a strategy to sell off more toys, but when it comes to story, we know it would not be lacking.
