Manganji no Yabō (マンガンジの野望) is the 14th episode of Crush Gear Turbo. It was originally aired in Japan on January 6, 2002.


According to the synopsis from the DVD release of the English dub:

Takeshi invites Kyousuke Jin to his secret Crush Gear research laboratory to build the ultimate Crush Gear. At the same time Kouya and Kuroudo are tricked into going to the Hokkaido Cup Crush Gear competition. While there, they see Takeshi's new super Crush Gear destroy the competition and Kyousuke Jin.



  • Although the Mighty Gears appeared in the Hokkaido Cup's giant screen outside the stadium (as well in television, where Jirou and Lilika watch the match in the hospital), it is unknown whether they are really competing or not.
