In ''Dash! Yonkuro'', it replaces the [[Falcon Jr.]] as Punkuro's primary machine throughout the original series. The Cannonball has higher acceleration performance compared to the others. Like the rest of the Dash machines, it is equipped with the special chassis.

The car also has a special device known as the Condenser Circuit (コンデンサー回路) which, when in use, sends large amounts of electricity to the motor, causing an immediate, massive increase in acceleration performance. However, it was also a major weakness: since the Condenser Circuit sends massive amounts of electricity to the motor, the motor will break or explode after use, completely breaking the car in the process. Punkuro would only use it when he is prepared for such an event.
In ''Dash! Yonkuro'', it replaces the [[Falcon Jr.]] as Punkuro's primary machine throughout the original series. Like the rest of the Dash machines, it is equipped with the chassis made of amorphous carbon-graphite composite material and gears made of polytetrafluoroethylene. 
 
   
The Cannonball has higher acceleration performance compared to the others. Along with the [[Dash-3 Shooting Star|Shooting Star]], the Cannonball is one of the fastest cars out of the five initial Dash machines.

Punkuro later gave the Condenser Circuit to Tankuro for his [[Dash-02 Neo Burning Sun|Neo Burning Sun]] before the final race at the start of the National Mini 4WD Championship.

Due to ''Hyper Dash! Yonkuro'' ignores the events of ''Shin Dash! Yonkuro'', it has two successors: The [[Dash-04 Cannonball Weil]] and the [[Cannon Dead Ball]].

In ''[[Hyper Dash! Yonkuro]]'', the Cannonball was used in the team race. Punkuro had challenge Comp Crow and his [[Night Seek Rod]] in the third stage (the 'Clock tower') with his old Cannonball instead of his [[Cannon D Ball|Cannon Dead Ball]]. Unfortunately, the Cannonball was destroyed as Punkuro didn't expect that there's a incoming large pendulum while driving through a shortcut, thus slicing the car in half and fell into the ocean. However, this event gives Shinkuro a idea to modify his [[Dash-3 Shooting Star|Shooting Star]]'s bodyshell and equipped it onto his [[Shooting Proud Star]].
