transpixel The rubber plug above the "Mega Star" logo was a feature shared by all Aqua Fighters and Diving Devils.  By pulling the plug upwards you would vent air from the ballast tanks, filling them with water and submerging the vehicle.  It could then drive along the bottom with it's crawlers. transpixel
