Continuing after the events of Hot Wheels World Race, former multiversal grand prix competitors turned street racers, Vert Wheeler, Taro Kitano & brothers Kurt and Markie Wylde find themselves teaming back up with Dr. Peter Tesla. Gelorum and her army of Racing Drones have reappeared to take back the Wheel of Power and are accessing the Racing Realms. The Racing Realms have tracks that are dominated by specific elements that make for severe driving conditions (such as the Fog Realm for driving in, well, [[CaptainObvious fog conditions]]). Those who conquer a Realm gains an Accelecharger which allows a car to drive with no complications in the conditions of the associated realm. With the help of Dr. Tezla, the racers enter the realms to obtain the Accelechargers before Gelorum's Drones do.

For the most part, it was MerchandiseDriven, just like its predecessor, ''Hot Wheels: Highway 35 World Race''. The competent storyline and very vehicle in the toyline being tailor-made to fit in with the story suggests it was also made [[DoingItForTheArt for the art]], much like ''ReBoot''. Because Mattel paid to make these movies, it was impossible to be ScrewedByTheNetwork, as they would just take their business elsewhere- but the company that did the CGI animation was another story. All four movies were released to shelves over the course of 2005, but for unknown reasons, the series was LeftHanging at the end of the fourth film. It's highly likely this is because Mainframe ran into unresolved monetary issues that resulted in their inability to make more films. Eventually, this caused a fallout that led to their buyout by Rainmaker Entertainment in 2007. Since then, Hot Wheels has not given insight as to whether this series will be concluded. Unfortunately, a large period of time has muddled the presence of [=AcceleRacers=], as it is never seen beyond the internet these days. However, when a film hits the Website/YouTube community, it gains notable viewership. Until the cliffhanger is resolved, this series floats in limbo. More recently, Vert Wheeler's character reappeared as the lead character in WesternAnimation/HotWheelsBattleForce5, but that series has no connection to World Race and [=AcceleRacers=].

* NitroBoost: Dr. Tezla provided all cars with a Nitrox2 system, which allows any driver to reach the maximum speed of 300 mph. Also includes [[RuleOfCool flaming trails and wheels.]]

* NitroBoost: The Nitrox2 makes a return but along the way, Monkey develops a new formula dubbed "Nitrox3 1/2" which [[MundaneMadeAwesome allows a driver to go 300 mph in reverse!]] This is demonstrated by Taro when he ended up in the Drone HQ by accident.
** In The Ultimate Race, Tezla installed a Nitrox2 Afterburner in Vert's Reverb. It seems to give more kick compared to the usual Nitrox2 and can be used a lot more sparingly.

* OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: Each racing realm has a different type of challenge to overcome. Only a racer who learns to overcome it will reach the finish.
**[[spoiler: Only a racer who passes through each realm using skill, and not the Accele-Chargers, may join the Accelerons]]


Added DiffLines:

* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler: The racing realms were designed to create "the perfect driver". Each realm teaching a different kind of driving skill.]] [[spoiler:The point of the final race is not to be first. Rather to show your skill by making it through each realm over again, and not using the Accele-Chargers.]]

* HomingBoulders: The Drone's ram/bumper weapon is to follow the track despite not having any apparent guidance mechanism.


Added DiffLines:

* OnceMoreWithClarity:
** The last time we see the flashback to Tone's crash [[spoiler:we see that he actually recovered just fine from Tork hitting him and then lost control while drifting.]] This is also when Nolo forgives Tork.
** The first part of the cliffside realm ends with Kurt ramming Shirako off the track. The second and third parts show that a drone had damaged Shirako's car to the point where it would explode but his music was too loud for him to hear the others warn him, Kurt rammed him to force him to EDR.
