General info Edit
The Magnum Saber, much like its sister car Sonic Saber, featuring the curved, fully cowled bodyshell that covering the wheels. There's the rear body roller attachments in which user can install the 10 mm rollers on it.
The differences between it and Sonic Saber is that the Magnum Saber has the flame-like decals on its bodyshell and has the flat rear spoiler. Furthermore, it has the 'Go' (豪) emblem on the front of the bodyshell. The rear winglets are also smaller in Magnum Saber compared to Sonic Saber.
Standard, Special Kit and Premium variants Edit
The standard, special kit and Premium variants features the white body color, with blue and red trims on it. The special kit variant comes with an additional Sonic Saber bodyshell.
Both the standard variant and special kit were equipped with the fluorescent green, small diameter 3-spoke Fully Cowled-type wheels paired with the black high-profile slick tires. The chassis frame and A parts were molded in gray and green, and comes with the blue normal-type sideguard. On the Special kit variant, the chassis frame was molded in glass-fiber-mixed ABS.
The Premium variant was equipped with the fluorescent green, small diameter 5-spoke low-profile Saber-type wheels that are paired with the black low-profile slick tires. It comes with the reinforced chassis made of black polycarbonate-mixed ABS plastic and the A-parts were molded in red.
Only the Special Kit and the Premium variant comes with a standard motor.
First Impact Edit
The limited, Charatoru-exclusive First Impact variants, has the black and two-tone blues body decals as oppose to the usual blue and red. It has four color variants: blue, red, white and dark gray. However, the body decals works best with the blue color variant.
Depends on the color variants, it either came with the white chassis and white tires, or red chassis and black tires. All variants were equipped with the gold-plated, small diameter 3-spoke Fully Cowled-type wheels paired with high-profile slick tires, as well as the V-machine-type side-guard.
In the manga and anime Edit
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 first chapter/episode of the first series, the Seiba brothers were given the prototype Sabers by Professor Tsuchiya, under the condition that they must modify their Sabers into their own unique machines or else the cars will be taken back. Go modified his Saber into the Magnum Saber.
Like his Manta Ray Jr. before it, the Magnum Saber is specifically tuned for high-speed performance, with lightweight wheels, flat rear spoiler, high gear set (presumely the 5:1 gear ratio) and Rev-Tuned Motor equipped. Naturally, this car has poor balance and cornering stability.
Additionally, it lacked downforce, which is what both Professor Tsuchiya and later Ryo Takaba criticized about. However, it turns out that the lacks of downforces has provide the car with special effect as Go developed a special technique, the Magnum Tornado.
The Magnum Saber, along with Sonic Saber, were destroyed all together as both cars were fell off the track at Professor Ogami's lab into the lava during the Seiba brothers' race against J's Proto-Saber JB.
In the anime, it was later revealed that Go still has the badly-aged Rev-Tuned Motor that the Magnum Saber used in its debut race and use it in his Victory Magnum during the Tokichi Cup until it finally stops working.
