The planet of Takora doesn't have highly advanced scientific technology, so it was a challenge for the Takoraians to make a quality racer. They bought a used F-Zero machine with standard balance capabilities and equipped it with a cockpit that would make it easy for a Takoraian to operate. The Takoraians changed nothing in terms of the machine's capabilities--they are set to standard, providing the machine with a relaxed feel. If this machine is ever to win a Grand Prix, it will likely need some serious adjustment.
