Card Trivia

 This card is the first Synchro Monster in the Synchron archetype.
This monster's design is based on a Formula One racecar.
This card's artwork is similar to the artwork of Geargiaccelerator.
This card is the first Level 2 Synchro Monster, and was tied with T.G. Recipro Dragonfly and Puralis, the Purple Pyrotile for the lowest Leveled Synchro Monster until Ultimaya Tzolkin.
This monster could be an upgraded version of Turbo Synchron since both are based on a racecar, and it is a Synchron whose Level is low enough to be used as Synchro Material for the Synchro Summon of this card, along with Changer Synchron and Mono Synchron, the latter of which's effect seems specifically designed to Summon this card.
Interestingly enough, this card could also be the combined counterpart of Turbo and Tuningware as the ATK of Formula Synchron are the combined total of the two (100 + 100 = 200), and its DEF are the product of the DEF of one of them by the first number of the DEF of the other monster (300 x 5 or 500 x 3 = 1500), along with the fact that Formula shares the effect of Tuningware to draw one card. They are also both Machine monsters.
This is the first and only Synchron monster to be Limited, and eventually Semi-Limited, before becoming Unlimited once again.

If a
Synchro Monster with an Optional Trigger Effect like "Black Rose Dragon" or "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" is Synchro Summoned in the middle of a Chain by an effect like "Formula Synchron" (as Chain Link 2 or higher), then the effects of "Black Rose Dragon" or "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" will miss the timing.: Formula Synchron to Black Rose Dragon
