The Jumpstarters are a racing team that supports the current Throttlebot Council, largely by opposing the Battlechargers.

Races that include council members, especially Chase and Goldbug, almost always end with the council member in first place, and a Jumpstarter in second who boxed-out a Battlecharger in third. This "patriotic" race strategy has not gone unnoticed, and may be doing more harm than good; the Battlechargers cite this interference as against the spirit of racing and proof Runabout and Runamuck should be on the council.

Non-racers Topspin (who uses his spacecraft altmode to scout ahead of Grand Maximus) and Twin Twist (who uses his driller altmode as part of mining operations) are their leaders and staunch supporters of the current council.
