The Spin-Axe (スピンアックス) is a Fully Cowled Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in 1995.

It was featured in the manga and anime Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go! as Tokichi Mikuni's machine. It was superseded by the Spin Cobra in the series.

General info

The Spin-Axe featuring the smooth body design, with the cowls covering the front and rear wheels, a pair of wheel guard attached to the front and the flat front center panel. It has the silver cockpit, a pair of 911-ish headlamps and double-fin type spoiler.

The front fender and the wheel guards has to be removed if user wish to install any front bumper parts, except if the Fully Cowled-type AR front plates are used, which requires no modification to the bodyshell.

It is mainly in blue, with yellow/orange thunder-styled decals on it.

It was equipped with the yellow small-diameter fully cowled-type wheel paired with high-profile slick tires, and the blue curve-type side-guard attachment. The sub-parts of the chassis were molded in green.

In the manga and anime

The Spin-Axe was made by Dr. Tsuchiya as one of the prototype fully cowled machines (along with the Sabers and Tridagger X). It was given to Tokichi Mikuni.

Since Tokichi's family is rich, he customized it with special-made parts, including the special chassis with the spring-attached front roller arms. Using the recoils create by said roller arms, the Spin-Axe is able to initiate its 'Thunder Drift' technique in low-speed technical corners. However said technique cannot be initiated on high-speed corners.

What happened to the Spin-Axe in the anime is unknown as it was superseded by Spin Cobra in the series, although it is implied that Tokichi retired the car after Spin Cobra's body was completed. In the manga, it was upgraded into Spin Cobra by Dr. Tsuchiya.
