The Z Wing Magnum (Japanese: Z ウイングマグナム, Zetto Uingu Magunamu) is a Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya on November 8, 2014. It is the 7th entry in the Magnum series.

It was features in Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go! Return Racers! and Let's & Go! Tsubasa: Next Racers Legend as the race machine for a boy named Tsubasa, who happened to have meet the now grow-up Go Seiba from the original series.

General Info

The Z Wing Magnum features the fully-cowled body that covers all the wheels. It has the body colors that are dominated by blue and silver, with some of the red on it. There's the large rear wings to provide downforce to the rear wheels. On the front, the kanji Tsubasa (翼) is engraved on it.

By cutting out certain pieces of the body and applying the sticker included with CoroCoro Aniki volume 2, the alternate form Wing Magnum that resembles a F1 car can be replicated (coincidentally, Go Seiba is also a F1 racer by the time Return Racer! starts)

The car is equipped with the neon green small-diameter 5-spoke Saber-type low-profile wheels with low-profile tires.

Gold Plated Special

The limited gold-plated version of the car was also included in the limited edition of the first volume of the manga. Both the bodyshell and the wheel are gold-plated, and instead of the normal stickers it came with the special designed clear stickers.

The machine, the Wing Magnum was originally purchased and later tuned by Tsubasa himself (with the original chassis intact). However, the Wing Magnum suffers from stability issue on cornering during the first few races with Peter's Diospada. Motivated by Tsubasa's determination, Go Seiba modified it into Z Wing Magnum by adding the front piece made from the scrapped part of his wrecked F1 car salvaged by Jun. The front cowl acts as a thruster and the 'wings' for the car, allow it to overtaking Peter's Diospada from above.[1]

Later in the series, Its owner Tsubasa, is often seen using his Z Wing Magnum on the open road and unintentionally causes some mischiefs, including provoking a owner's dog to chase him and his car,[2] as well as having a truck (which happen to driven by Ryo Takaba, with his brother Jiromaru as a passenger) fliped on the road while avoiding his Z Wing Magnum. (Fortunately for Go and Tsubasa, the truck and the Takaba brothers were unharmed.)[3] Go had also borrowed the Z Wing Magnum from Tsubasa once to race against J and his Proto-Saber Evolution.[4]
