Did my car just bothered you?
— Momotaro Kibi

Crimson Glory (Japanese: クリムゾングローリー, Kurimuzon Gurōrī), also known as Crimson G (Japanese: クリムゾンG, Kurimuzon Ji) and Crimson-1 Crimson Glory (Japanese: CRIMSON-1 クリムゾンGグローリー, Kurimuzon-wan Kurimuzon Gurōrī)[1], is a Racing Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya on December 12, 1990. It was the first front-motor-mounted Mini 4WD car.

It was featured in manga and anime Dash! Yonkuro as Momotaro Kibi's machine.

Dash! Yonkuro

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
