Runabout and Runamuck are the leaders of a Velocitronian movement that wants to expand beyond Velocitron. While their name supposedly comes from their willingness to fight if necessary, they implicitly sell the glory and excitement that conquest would bring.

Currently they compete in the races to try and gain enough popularity to be elected to spots on the Throttlebot Council, but it's only a matter of time before they push their followers to violence.

Their racing ambitions have been stymied by the Jumpstarters, a racing team with patriotic overtones.
