Spoiler alert!

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!

After the Tridagger X was destroyed by Kai Okita's Beak Spider, Dr. Tsuchiya had developed the new machine with the ZMC plastic for the bodyshell. The new bodyshell has the rear air jets on the front fender for performance boost and much like the Tridagger, it has strong downforce.

However, the bodyshell soon disintegrate to dusts under the bodyshell's strong downforce during the test run. Dr. Tsuchiya reveals that the ZMC plastic his lab has was currently unstable, so he suggest that they have to meet the developer of the ZMC plastic: Tesshin Okada. With the help from Tesshin, the new ZMC body was completed and the Neo-Tridagger was born.

The ZMC body on the Neo-Tridagger has the hardness of the ceramic and the flexibility of the glass-fiber. The new material can also neutralizes the Beak Spider's wind blade attacks.

The Neo-Tridagger was later replaced by the Rising-Trigger, but how it was being replaced is different; In the manga, the Neo-Tridagger was severely damaged during the race against Rosso Strada and hasn't repaired until it was replaced by the new machine, while in the anime, it was repaired and was still in use until the end of the grand prix. What happened to the Neo-Tridagger after the first MIni 4WD World Grand Prix in the anime is unknown.
