The anime was later re-broadcast on Tokyo MX from July 1 to September 25, 2008.

This car is a strong competitor in racing and is driven by the mysterious Racer X, who happens to be Speed’s long-lost brother and now secret protector. This 1:18 replica matches its silver screen counterpart in exacting detail and comes with a bonus Racer X figure.
The Shooting Star is a very agile machine painted bright yellow with a powerful engine in the rear. Its driver, Racer X, is a secret agent, so the car is equipped with many high-tech weapons to fight crime. Onboard radio equipment allows him to communicate with a spy/intelligence agency. Slick pumps are in the rear to throw oil behind and foil bad guys. The Shooting Star can continue racing, even after losing a rear wheel. Some of the features shown on this die-cast replica are carried over from the original Japanese Mach Go Go Go series.
This 1:18 scale die-cast replica has opening doors, a detailed engine with an opening hood, an accurate interior and chassis, steerable front wheels, as well as, two product original features, the popup periscope, and telescopic claw. Racer X could beat the Mach 5 if he weren’t protecting its driver, Speed.
