Due to an unfortunate confrontation in the corridors of the Ark, Tag finds himself on another racer’s grudge list. At the same time, Tamira is having difficulties with some of King’s orders.
Despite his continuing success in the tournament, Tag is disappointed to discover that the race is not as fair as he once thought it to be. He learns the hard way that getting on the bad side of the wrong people could come with disastrous consequences.
Tag and his allies come up with a strategy to disrupt King’s plans for the RIMBA Grand Prix. In the race, none of them are prepared for how far King is willing to go to make sure things proceed just the way he wants them to.
Due to the events of the previous race, Tag’s motivation for continuing the race is waning, and the consequences of his absence take a toll on the other racers. With Sonny hurt, and the Ripper destroyed, Tag is forced to make a drastic decision.
With nobody left to oppose him, King seems to be in complete control of the race and all its racers. Surprisingly, Tamira tries to convince Tag to stay and fight. Having no other choice, she takes matters into her own hands.
