    The room was indeed laid out like a track, but unbeknownst to the trio that had just entered it, despite the lack of Satomobiles or other vehicles before them, it was in fact intended for use by such. They might not have had any readily available, but even with the Water Tribe duo's impressive beast at their side, there did not appear to be any mechanisms linked to the track that might open the way forward. A different stone door similar to the one that had just shut behind them was visible along the right side of the wall, but it appeared to be just as sealed as the other one.

    The pair were certainly very astute, but no matter how observant they were in this newest chamber, the challenge that awaited them was too quick to be seen, at least at first. A distinct vroom! could be heard in the distance, and an instant later, a white blur with a thin, red streak across it rocketed towards them, cutting as close to the Avatar's arm as possible. The unseen attacker did not stick around for long though, as it soon took to speeding around the course, following the oval layout of the track, keeping only the vaguest blur of its shape in sight. This force was not making itself entirely known just yet, but it appeared that the adventurous friends were in store for another combat-based challenge!

    Sokka's grin broadened a touch at Korra's chuff and wave, glad to see that she'd been just as amused by their latest exchange as he had been. It was always nice to see their similar sense of humor in action! As the two continued across the bridge, Sokka was indeed rather intrigued by the question Korra had posed. His answer seemed to satisfy her, although he couldn't help but chuckle softly at her added assessment of this place. "It's definitely varied… and certainly not boring." The challenges might have been unpredictable, much like their involuntary changes had been, but one thing was for certain: their training trip to the mountains was still proving successful thus far. Even if they had not anticipated any of this, they were most assuredly getting some good practice in. Nodding at Korra's note about how they needed all of the pieces to truly figure it out, Sokka smiled and added, "Whether I am or not, we'll sort it out, the same way we'll find our way out of here." And back to themselves.

    Sokka might have been from a time before Satomobiles, but the concept of roads and tracks had been in place for millennia. Even the upgraded, higher tech ones of Korra's time and the Breach itself still followed the same base principles, so the recognition for both of them was almost instant. Unable to suppress an amused grin at Korra's exclamation, Sokka nodded as she mentioned the similarity between Asami's track and this one. "Ah-ha, I see!" Now that was another friend of Korra's he'd've loved to have met, and a house he would have been keen to visit… as it was though, the track before them was obvious in its form, but its relevance to this chamber was still a mystery.

    Glancing about at Korra's observation regarding the lack of Satomobiles, Sokka narrowed his gaze as he mused, "Neither do I…" Hm… just what were they supposed to do here to move on? He could see the next door, but it was sealed shut, and there didn't appear to be any switches to open it. Maybe there was one all the way at the end of the track and they had to hurry back before the switch reset? Before Sokka could ponder that possibility too long though, he perked up at hearing the distinct sound of an engine revving, but even though he couldn't see any vehicles around the track, he did manage to catch sight of a white and red blur zooming towards them. "WHAT?!"

    Sokka didn't even get the chance to blink before the blur was upon them, managing to connect with Korra's side with blinding speed. "Korra!" As soon as the mystery attacker had blazed off again, Sokka moved to check on his friend, asking, "Are you all right?" The blow did not appear to be too bad, but the sheer speed that she'd been attacked with was enough that he wanted to make sure she was okay before attempting to counter whatever was in here.

    As soon as Korra confirmed her status, Sokka moved to unsheathe his bone club, narrowing his blue eyes once more and attempting to focus on their speedy target. "I guess we found our next challenge… time to fight again!" Even if they couldn't see just who or what this blur was, the least they could do was try to stun it! If they could slow it down, they might be able to take the advantage back in full. Sokka waited patiently for the blur to speed towards them again, and as it followed the path on the track, he unleashed a quick strike with his bone club.

    "Definitely not." Perhaps it was better to have an interesting cave experience that was kinda life-threatening than to have a very boring one. Perhaps by the end of this adventure, they'd have all the keys to understanding the intentions behind this cave and they could look back on this as a fun and funny adventure. "You got that right, Sokka." One way or another, they were going to end up in their correct bodies and leave this place stronger than ever!

    Sokka wasn't seeing any Sato-mobiles either. That was strange...why have a race track and nothing to race with? The door was sealed shut, and every other time there was a sealed door, they'd had to do something to unlock it. The only thing here was a race track. "I don't even see any animals we can ride. Unless we were to both get on Naga." The Avatar cast a curious look at the polar bear dog, she ought not have any trouble carrying the both of them? Though her distraction with Naga provided the open window for...something to suddenly attack. A random blur suddenly struck by, catching her arm and causing her to pull the arm to her chest with a hiss, Naga growling at the direction of the receding blur. "Agh!" She glanced down at her arm and stretched the muscles out, wiggling her fingers before nodding to Sokka. "Yeah, its not broken. Stings though...what hit me?!" Whatever it was, it was continuing on the track! Maybe it was a Sato-mobile? A really fast one...

    "Yeah, we can finish the fight that that thing started!" Sokka had already grabbed out his club, and Korra waited a few moments as Naga gave her arm a few licks before grabbing her waterskin and drawing out a nice tendril of water. As it swung back in their direction, Sokka swung his club down at it. Korra pulled the water tendril back before letting it snap forward to strike the blur at the very front of it.

    The speedy attacker could not help but snicker triumphantly to himself as he landed a good strike against the male intruder's arm. It might not have been enough to knock him over, but it had certainly taught him the early lesson that he, his friend, and his oversized dog were up against a world-class racer. They couldn't easily fight what they couldn't see, and as far as he could help it, he was going to whittle them down big time before they would even get a glimpse at his greatness!

    "Ha-ha-HA!" As the phantom image of his blur trailed behind him, he raced forward again, hoping to swoop in close without actually hitting either of his targets this time but instead throw them off balance. His pass started off perfectly as the female warrior threw a wide miss with some type of club, however, he was not expecting the attack from the Avatar. "Huh?!"

    A rapid snap of water shot forward, catching the very from of his cart dead in the center. It wasn't anywhere near enough to disable him, but the hit had been sweet enough to cause him to spin out. "GAH!!" The red and white blur ricocheted forward, spinning around down the track until it slowed down, only now revealing who had appeared to contest the adventurers. There might not have been any free vehicles on the track, but there certainly was one here, and it was perfectly color coordinated with its driver… past his white and red racing suit, he himself appeared rather unsettling, with grayish skin, eerie yellow eyes, and a grin that was as maniacal as it was determined.

    "Well well… you DO have some speed on you after all! But you're still NOTHING compared to me!"
    There was no way that these three could match him in speed, but he saw now that he'd have to up his own game a little. "I'm Turbo, the greatest racer ever, and I'm the last thing you'll see on this track!" With his gauntlet thrown, he revved his engine once more, this time aiming for the female warrior as he raced forward.

    Sokka was admittedly wondering if the two of them hopping on Naga might help trigger this next room's mechanism for them, but before he could even hum in contemplation, the random blur was upon them. As Korra confirmed that she was all right, Sokka returned her nod before focusing his gaze on what had blazed past them. "I have no idea, but we're about to find out." Hopefully, if they could dish back some of the damage it had already dealt, they would be able to figure out what they were up against.

    Whilst his own attack was far more of a miss than he would have liked, Korra's water whip hit the target dead on. Sokka could not resist a brief fist pump and triumphant hiss, but that soon shifted to him widening his eyes in surprise as their mystery attacker spun out. That was certainly a Sato-mobile all right, even if it was a smaller one… the one behind the wheel was what gave the warrior serious pause though, his deranged expression lending even more to that than his physical appearance alone. Still, as this racer stared them down and taunted them over their difference in speed, Sokka tightened his grip on his bone club and held his ground. "Well of course we do, but at least we can be quick on our own!" Sure, they were fastest on Naga, at least for running, but they could still be pretty swift even when they weren't riding on her back! "Who are you anyway?!" Or WHAT if that was a better question… still, the racer answered them, and even though Sokka had never heard of this "Turbo" person, he had a strong feeling he'd be glad that he hadn't until just now.

    "Oh yeah? We'll see about that!" Between this racer's attack against Korra and his own previous miss, Sokka was determined to make his next strikes land true. Unfortunately, the next attack to connect was once again Turbo's, and this time he caught Sokka before the warrior could dodge. "GRGH!" He was up in the air with the wind momentarily knocked out of him, but thankfully, he'd been hit whilst the kart was accelerating instead of once it had sped up more. Even better, he'd managed to land on the hood of the kart, and even though it didn't leave him much time to act, he still had an opening.

    Quickly unsheathing his space sword, Sokka pushed himself up and bolted forward, slashing at Turbo twice before leaping from the Sato-mobile, managing to land in a crouch closer to where he'd first been hit from. He grunted slightly in pain as he tried to steady himself better from the hit he'd taken, as although he'd not been too injured thanks to the angle of the attack, it had definitely smarted.

    Korra sent Sokka a stiff nod. Oh yes, they were about to find out, though at least they definitely knew it had to be a person, from the sound of that obnoxious laughter. Just what was he so happy about, huh?! The Avatar scowled deeply, though the scowl stretched into a smirk once the tendril of water hit the blur right across the front, causing it to spin out. The blur slowed to a stop, revealing to the two Water Tribe teenagers exactly who was attacking them! And what! "A Sato-mobile!" Albeit a lot more...narrow than what she was used to, or had seen. And driving the car was a man neither of them seemed to recognize! Dressed in a suit that was the same color as his Sato-Mobile, the driver looked like he had seen better days.

    "What's your problem? Why are you trying to run us down?" She took a stern step forward in the racer's direction, stance demanding answers. It didn't seem like they were going to get any however, the pale driver instead complimenting on their speed, yet still insisting they were nothing compared to him. "Yeah, we don't need a fancy Sato-mobile to be fast!" She added onto Sokka's response with a self-assured smirk and arm fold. Once Sokka demanded to know who he was, the racer introduced himself as Turbo, the 'greatest' racer ever. The Avatar didn't hold back a scoff. Asami was a much better driver than this clown. She'd like to see him involved in the Sato-mobile chases they had been a part of...

    The engines roared as Turbo put his Sato-mobile back into motion, ramming into Sokka. "Sokka!" At the same time, Naga growled and crouched, about to pounce. Korra ran over to the Sato-mobile, calling out to the polar bear dog "Down, Naga!" They could handle this for now, and she didn't want to see the polar bear dog hurt. Sato-mobiles could pack a punch, even for a polar bear dog. Sokka seemed to be alright, using his position on the hood to get a few strikes with his sword before rolling off of the hood and back to the ground. Korra withdrew another tendril of water from her water skin and, with a flick of her wrists, froze the water and sent several shards of ice flying for the hood. "Why don't you get out of that thing and fight us yourself?! Or are you unable to fight without it?" She taunted.

    --At level 1, the only bending ability Korra still retains is the element of her native heritage, Water. This doesn't make her a slouch though, as she's still a very good waterbender, although her healing abilities are blocked for now. As long as she has her waterskin on her, of there is water around, she is able to waterbend. With this power, Korra can create icicles that she can send out or use as a makeshift sword to injure her opponent.

    Specifics: Each attack is 2 die/1 coin, with the AP cost fluctuating based on the current level. There is a 6 die limit, so the maximum amount of attacks that can be done with this power is three.

    Level 20–39:
    2 Die / 1 Coins = 02 AP
    4 Die / 2 Coins = 04 AP
    6 Die / 3 Coins = 06 AP

    The pair before him as well as their lumbering beast might have thought to make quips about how to show off their own speed, but they only saw the surface of things. True, Turbo was definitely the fastest in his cart, but he was by no means slow on his own. He didn't need to glitch about to be fast! No siree! He was a racer to the core, and he was going to make sure these two would be just as finished as any of his races.

    Just as he'd hoped, Turbo's aim had been right on target. That female warrior wound up right on top of his hood though; he must have hit her at a perfect speed to achieve that, but even with as amusing as it was and with as good a chance as it presented him to open up a second attack, he soon blinked in surprise as she moved to attack him instead! "GAH!" He found a two swift strikes from a black sword meeting his arms, and in short order, she leapt from his cart. No sooner had his cart been one passenger lighter than did he find his hood caught with a sizable ice spear, that alone causing him to suddenly widen his eyes. A whip of water was one thing, but what was that?!

    As he rounded in his turn, he caught the taunt from the Avatar, unable to suppress a broad grin of his own. "Oh I can certainly fight out of this, but this is far more fair for you!" Sure, it might have been a partial bluff, but he could still mess people up with his own bare hands. With another snicker to himself, he called back a delayed answer to his previous question, exclaiming, "Why am I trying to run you down? Simple! There's no room for you here!"

    And who better to take down than the one who had been most recently injured! With another rev on his engine, Turbo sped forward, attempting to clip the warrior with the side of his cart.

    His body still stung from where he'd been hit by Turbo's charge, but at the very least, he was still able to move. As he got his footing again, Sokka watched as Korra unleashed a few ice spears right towards Turbo's Sato-mobile, and even though only one struck to the point of causing damage, he was still glad to see the hit connect. "Nice job," he noted, making sure to keep his voice low so that their foe couldn't hear what he said next. "Maybe if we can get a little more water on the track, you can stop him cold!" Sokka wasn't sure how well it might work with the speed that this guy could reach, but it might be worth a shot to at the very least throw him off. And until then, maybe be could try to give Turbo a flat or two!

    Sokka couldn't help but smirk slightly at Korra's taunt, although he soon found his blue gaze narrowing Turbo's retort. So he thought it was more fair to be in his Sato-mobile, huh? It seemed like a strange handicap, but whether any part of that was a bluff or not, Sokka was prepared to take him down. That much was confirmed even more with his next exclamation to them. "Oh yeah? There's plenty of room for us here! We're just trying to make our way through this cave!"

    It had already proven pretty challenging, and the next part of that seemed set to meet him almost as head-on as the last attack. Turbo was racing right for him again, but it seemed like he was a bit off-center, almost like he was trying to clip him the way he did Korra. Sokka was not about to take that if he could help it, so with a quick hop backwards before the racer was upon him, he soon thrust out his sword to the side, holding it in line with the front tire. Sokka didn't have time to get full swings in, but hopefully, he could turn Turbo's speed against him here. Adjusting his hold on his sword twice, he tried to slash him two more times as he sped past each of them.
