Race cars are a new category of advanced vehicles used in the sport Combat Racing in Jak X: Combat Racing. Similar to Jak 3's buggies, these vehicles don't utilize the common hover technology seen in zoomers and instead rely on four wheels. These racing vehicles all share an on-board weapons system, standardly two Submachine Guns though it can be changed depending on any Eco pick-ups used. They also have an on-board turbo boost system, which can be charged by collecting blue pick-ups.
As with the buggies, these cars also have jump jet technology which enables them to make small hops at the drivers command. These jumps can destroy enemy cars if practiced correctly, but is notably hard to execute.
