In the manga and anime Edit

Spoiler alert!

This section of the article may contains details concerning the progression of the plot. If you do not want it to be spoiled for you, skip this section!

In the manga, shortly after the Ichimonji brothers lose in a race against Ryo Takaba's Rising-Trigger, Gouki modify the Max Breaker using a prototype chassis he got from Dr. Tsuchiya's lab. However, things doesn't go well for him, as the modified car has become much slower and worse, it got course out a few times. It was until he finally got a hint from the jet plane, that he modified the car into the current form, the Blazing-Max.

In the anime, it was Gouki's father Masamune who developed the Blazing-Max after the Max Breaker was destroyed by Marina Ogami's Phoenix Stinger. Where the Max Breaker was designed with the concept of 'cutting through the wind', the Blazing-Max was designed with the concept of 'become one with the wind' in mind. Not only the shorter tracks and wheelbase of the new car reduces the drags, but also improves acceleration, speed and cornering performances. The bodyshell of the Blazing-Max has been coated with the titanium coating, which strengthen the body. It is unknown if it can initiate the 'Max Storm' special technique.
