Owner Go Seiba
The Magnum Saber (マグナムセイバー) is the very first Fully Cowled Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in 1994.

It is featured in manga and anime Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go! as Go Seiba's second machine, replacing his Manta Ray Jr..

General info

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 13mm rollers on it. The bodyshell is mainly in white, with blue and red trims 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.

The original Magnum Saber comes with the blue-colored curve side-guard attachment and is equipped with the green 3-spoke small-diameter wheels paired with high-profile slick tires. The sub-parts of the chassis for the original were molded in green.

The Premium variant, however, is equipped with the green 5-spoke small-diameter low-profile wheels with low-profile slick tires. The sub-parts of the chassis for this variant were molded in red.

In the manga and anime

In the first chapter/episode of the first series, the Seiba brothers were given the prototype Sabers by Dr. 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 light-weight 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 Dr. 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 Dr. Ogami's lab into the lava during the Seiba brothers' race against J's Proto-Saber JB.

Go was somehow managed to salvage the badly-damaged Rev-Tuned Motor that the Magnum Saber used and use it in his Victory Magnum during the Tokichi Cup until it finally stops working.
