Dash! Yonkuro (ダッシュ!四駆郎, Dasshu! Yonkurō?) is a Japanese manga series created by Zaurus Tokuda. The manga was adapted into an anime TV series consisting of only one season of 26 episodes aired by TV Tokyo.



Dash! Yonkuro was serialized in the monthly CoroCoro Comic from December 1987 until March 1992. The growing popularity of the comic strip resulted in an animated adaptation, financed by the Tamiya Corporation.

Zaurus Tokuda was a prolific writer of Mini 4WD comics, including: "Kaze no racer! Otokogi (The Wind Racer! Otokogi)", "Dash 10" and "Mirai Boy Racer! V-twin (The Racer of the Future! V-twin)".

In 2015, Hyper Dash! Yonkuro, a revival/spin-off series, authored by Hiroyuki Takei (under Tokuda's family approval), began serialization in CoroCoro Aniki magazine.


Auvek, Shogakukan Productions Co., Ltd., Staff 21, Tamiya Plastic Model Corporation, Tokyu Agency, Abukekku and Zaurus Tokuda collaborated to produce the animated series. Dash! replaced Mister Ajikko and aired on TV Tokyo from October 3, 1989 to March 27, 1990 with a season of 25 Episodes.

Dash! Yonkuro was also eventually distributed overseas in Italy, South Korea, the Arab World and the Philippines. The anime was broadcast in Italy and South Korea in the early nineties, and Malaysia in 1996.

Featured toy vehicles[edit]

The contests in this work come carried out are on sterrati tracings, going behind blot some and controlling them through of the said maces "guide sticks", it is in of the tracks constructed purposely for the Mini 4WD.

Tamiya produced numerous new Mini 4WD from 1986 to 1989, some like for tradition, the models are uniquely designed, others instead were reproductions of radio control (R/C) cars, they therefore produced the first Mini 4WD independent from the use of remote controls: Dash-1 Emperor (model# 18012), Dash-2 Burning Sun (model# 18015), Rising Bird (model# 18017), Dash-3 Shooting Star (model# 18019), Dash-4 Cannonball (model# 18022) and Dash-5 Dancing Doll (model# 18023).

First chassis and tune-up parts[edit]

Type-1 chassis, the first Mini 4WD chassis using rollers begins the production of tune-up parts and motors for the Racing Mini 4WD and the commercialization of particular tracks to race for these cars. They however produced two new chassis, Type-2 and Type-3.

Type-2 made its debut with the Avante Junior (18014), and was the new concept of Mini 4WD racing: center of gravity lower than Type-1, various ratios for faster gears (5:1 and 4.2:1), more aerodynamic and FRP (fiber reinforcment plate) installations.

Type-2 introduced removable shaft receivers for ball bearings and better roller angling that would have allowed one Mini 4WD to bounce in a less traumatic way on the walls of the tracks (or the shovels of the stick).

Type-3 made its debut with the Rising Bird, is an evolution of Type-1 and the most unusual way of the motor being placed upside-down, big pinion gear and ribbed gear shaft easier gear change ( 6.4:1 and 5:1 instead of 4:1). Models with Type-3 chassis are the models once produced in 1986 with the Type-1 and reproduced in 1988 with the new chassis.


The story is a succession of races in fancy routes (pyramids, labyrinths, etc.) and tracks fit to make the cars race. During the series run, many characters will appear, like Momotaro (and his Mini 4WD, Crimson Glory, DashWarriors'last obstacle towards the final victory), Sabu Kinjiro (Aero Solitude) and also Jin that will race the Hell Rally with a new Mini4wd, the la Proto Emperor ZX (the previous one was the Dash-X1 Proto Emperor, defeated in the regional finals by Yonkuro's then new mini4wd, the Dash-01 Super Emperor). The tracks become always more harder and the stories unlikely (in a volume of the manga, is mentioned that even the prehistoric children used mini4wd-like cars built with natural materials like wood and leaves that would be pushed by the wind), the story always will focus even more on which one would be the true "Emperor", it will be discovered are many mini4wds with this title that will confront against Yonkuro's Emperor, until the epilogue, in the epic challenge of the Hell Rally.

in this race Yonkuro will challenge a group of delinquents that want to take advantage of the best mini4wd racers to manage recovering a treasure hidden during the World War II by the nazis. Between his opponents there will be a revived Ken Hinomaru, ready to challenge the son and test his abilities with his new mini 4wd, the Dash-0 Infinite Boundless. In the end, Yonkuro, helped by his teammates (now far from racing, but always bound by a deep friendship), triumphs with his new car, the Liberty Emperor.

Yonkuro is a mini4wd-enthusiast boy , Compared to his teammates, Yonkuro has a risky racestyle that aims to an overall efficinecy in every route. His recklessness will bring always his mini4wd beyond the limits, to the point that he always will have the need to replace it due to the damages received and in order to compete with even more formidable opponents.
Yonkuro's final goal is to take part at the Hell Rally, to honor his father, -that he believes to be dead while taking part to the Hell Rally- and to win. With such a dream in mind, Alan tries to become the best racer of the country and to convince many of his coetaneous that the Mini4wd cars are racing cars in miniature and not toys like most people believe.
Towards the end of the series, in the national races (seen only on the manga) he remains the only Dash Warriors' present and always active member. After leading the Dash Warriors to success in the final against Momotaro's team and their Crimson Glory, the las part of Dash!Yonkuro's story begins. Yonkuro finally will take part to the Hell Rally's last stage, the race that turn out the final goal: it was organised by delinquents that wanted to retrieve a treasure hidden by the nazis during the World War II, the Hell Rally is organised, so that the mysterious artefact, taking advantage from the best racers' abilities, in the vain attempt to discover the treasure's exact location. With the help of the other Dash Warriors, Yonkuro finally will manage to thwart the delinquents' plan and to win the race. At the end of the saga, Yonkuro will fulfill his dream of being a real scale car racer.
