Rename it?

Shouldn´t it be "Sprint Master" instead of "Sprintmaster"? This is how it is written on our documented box cover art.

Maybe - though on the bottom of the back cover, it is also written 'Sprintmaster (TM)', as on the bottom of the media scan.

Ah yes, you´re right! I didn´t see it. Maybe we can use one as an AKA. Have we got some guidelines for cases like this?

The back of the instruction manual refers to it as Sprint Master (TM). Not that it matters anyway.

The rule from the standards is clear. Go by how it is written on the front of the box, In this case its hard to say its suppose to be one word the way it appears, Should be Sprint Master.

The manual exclusively uses the two word spelling:

Changed it to the two word spelling since that's how it appears on the cover art. The combined spelling can always be added as an alt title if need be.
