One of the big challenges was to show these characters were in competition, but more importantly not just violent blood(oil?)-thirsty machines. One shot I included was the 'Yikes!' shot that shows them comically reacting to the electrical barriers going up on the track in front of them. This was done to show they had a common foe (The track hazards) but also implied camaraderie. My hope is you can almost hear a cybernetic 'Nyuck nyuck nyuck' as they avoid the barriers.
