In the series, Souichiro Kibi, the grandfather of the Team Momotaro Samurai's leader Momotaro Kibi, created the Crimson machines (which includes Crimson Glory) using the chassis design made and left behind by Genkuro Hinomaru, Yonkuro's father. The Crimson G was given to his grandson Momotaro who would uses the machine throughout the series.
Despite being having higher performance that is comparable to Yonkuro's Great Emperor, it is inferior to the Aero-Solitude, another front-motor machine that is also made using the design left by Genkuro
Technical info Edit
- Although the bodyshell of Crimson Glory is, by design, compatible with the FM-A Chassis, racers will need to remove the removable side exhaust parts as it will prevent the main bodyshell from fitting onto the new chassis.
