In the manga, the Storm-Cruiser is a Mini 4WD car made by both Tappei and Daigo. In the anime however, it was solely made and owned by Tappei himself, replacing his customized Super Avante Tappei Special in the series. (In the anime, Daigo has the Gun Bluster Silhouette Formula Mini 4WD car.)

The Storm-Cruiser is a all-round, highly balanced machine, and its speed is comparable to Retsuya's Knuckle Breaker.
