Nitroblast originally created the Tech Raiders team, as an opposite of the Tech Heads team. He searched for team members, and he found Techna Ziro, a corrupted scientist from his home planet F'mahala VI. Then he found a wolf-like hound in the forests of Quatros and wanted Techna Ziro to surgically "modify" him. Later, Techna Ziro brought the hound mecha-fied. Nitroblast accepted it and named it Firestorm Hound, though he thought it was a little too mecha-fied (It cannot bark, can growl in a different fashion, but most of his noises are robotic beeps and sounds).
They entered the 5226 championship, but lost in the Face-Off Entry Competition against the Nexus Dualas.
They entered the 5228 championship, and actually won the championship. Nitroblast was considered the champion, because he killed 3 out of 4 duelers on the opposing team. They used some of their credits to persuade an unnamed dueler to enter their team.
They waited 4 more years before entering the championship again. They fought in the 5232 championship. They lost in the Finals battle to the Road Runners. The unnamed dueler was killed in the battle with a shot to the head.
The loss did not stop them, and they joined the 5234 championship. They lost in the Championship battle against the Tech Heads, who won. The team broke up. Firestorm Hound was captured by Hero Factory. Techna Ziro and Nitroblast are still friends, though they never see each other much.
