  • Why thugs want an old man's car!

    9.1
    Speed, his younger brother Spritle, and pet Chim-Chim are off on a test run. As he runs into an old man and his grandpa. As the old man has a story to tell. Because he can't afford to feed his orphanage. And that they need the money or they will be forced to be kicked out. And then some thugs want the machine of his car for something bad. As Speed helps to defend this old man. Shows you the kind of heart that Speed has. And that we learn that Racer X is referred to as Rex for the first time. Funny to see that Spritle gets mad at his monkey for taking candy and ties him up as punishment. LOL Hillarious!moreless

      Speed: That's a famous antique. It's called a Model T.
      Spritle: Who'd wanna drive an old junk heap like that?
      Granpa: It's not junk!
      Susie: That's it! Tell him, Granpa!
