Synopsis[edit | edit source]


F-One Jack, Buggy Wolf and Hot Rod Joe - the latter driven by Akira - race outside the Algo Army base. Patricia is in Buggy Wolf and is unimpressed by his unconventional driving on the way to victory, though Hot Rod Joe is very taken with her. Akira and Jack meanwhile argue about racing ethics. However, they are interrupted by an alarm and the Battle Hackers - now including Luke in the Battle Riser - scramble. Gakurandar and the Gurendos are bombarding a nearby city but he is nearly shot by the sniper Rotary Kid, who flies away before Kariagen can deal with him. Rotary Kid reports events to RIM, who recommends sending in the Battle Hackers to support him and his partner Twincam Jimmy, who is suffering from wear to his engine. The Gurendos are able to recover plans of the city from a vault, revealing its' fragile power core. He dispatches Sorikondar and Kariagen to destroy it.


Rotary Kid meanwhile is still at large; he spots Sorikondar and Kariagen; realising they are up to no good he prepares to follow them but is spotted by a pair of Sitappas. He tries to fly clear but a large force of Teppodamans appears and begin throwing aerial mines at him, also causing huge damage below. Thankfully, R. JeTan and the Battle Hackers then appear; their firepower makes short work of the troopers. Rotary Kid explains the Gurendos' plans to R. JeTan, while Twincam Jimmy arrives to complain about his engine and make fun of Akira. Sorikondar and Kariagen have nearly reached the city's core, much to Rod Drill's distress, which causes RIM to once again tell the Algo Army about Baikanfu - who the computer compares to R. JeTan in leadership, heroism, strength and firepower; she insists the Battle Hackers will succeed. R. JeTan leads a push to reach the core first while Akira gives Twincam Jimmy's engine a much-needed overhaul, allowing the pair to ride into battle. With the Battle Hackers pinned down, R. JeTan sends F-One Jack to stop the Gurendos' scheme - with Akira and Jimmy immediately following. Sorikondar orders Kariagen to proceed alone and stops, throwing his cloak over Akira and causing him to fall off Twincam Jimmy. However, the Wheelman then kicks him in the face by way of thanks to Akira for fixing his engine. Kariagen reaches the core and prepares the explosives but is caught by Jimmy and Akira. They soon chase him away and deactivate the bomb, saving the city. Twincam Jimmy and Rotary Kid subsequently join the Battle Hackers, while Akira taunts Jack about another victory.
