The Akagi Redsuns arrive on Mt. Akina to challenge the less-skilled Akina Speedstars and set a new record for the course. Later, Takumi Fujiwara, a local tofu delivery boy stuns the RedSuns #2 driver Keisuke Takahashi by passing him on the downhill during a delivery run.
The RedSuns' Keisuke Takahashi begins hunting for the Eight-Six Trueno that passed him on the mountain the previous night, questioning Iketani in the process. Iketani then begins his own search for the ghost Eight-Six, which leads him to Fujiwara tofu shop where he assumes that Takumi's father, the less-than-supportive Bunta Fujiwara, is the mystery racer.
Due to a crash on Akina's downhill, Iketani finds himself injured and without a car to challenge the RedSuns. Iketani begs Bunta Fujiwara to help defend Akina, but Bunta can only offer a 'maybe' in reply. As race time approaches, the Akina Speedstars and the Akagi RedSuns are both shocked as the mysterious Eight-Six approaches- with Takumi driving.
God Foot executes the type of improbable moves that helped him earn his nickname. Unfortunately for the legend, Keisuke thrives when he's pushed to extremes. The race continues - but the battle is just beginning.
Takeshi is ready to take on the Eight-Six and he has every reason to believe that the car's driver is game. When Takumi catches wind of the situation, he's got to decide if the challenge is worth accepting.
Iketani's putting his S-13 to the test now that it's out of the shop, but a simple practice session turns into a dangerous situation when a reckless member of the NightKids - Shingo - arrives in a red EG-6.
