Igno had a very, very stupid idea. And as it turned out, that incredibly stupid idea was turning directly towards the tank. Igno was betting on its lack of maneuverability and lack of turret to board the tank and dispose of its crew.
"Boarding raid? Haven't done one of those in a long time! Count me in!"
Vivian shrugs as Igno starts speeding his way towards the tank head-on. "You boys just make sure you don't die" she quips as she motions for Igno to let her take the wheel.
The Chadmobile is able to drive quickly given that the tank is almost but not quite finished turning. A few bolts of lightning come flying out the front of the tank, but they achieve little but increasing the ozone in the sky and kicking up clouds of dirt. Echoes of profanity fill the air as the driver realizes that he might not be able to catch either Igno nor Mitch like this. It seems this is your best shot right now
The Chadmobile turned incredibly fast with respect to the giant kill-tank. It launched bolts of lightning seemingly in impotent fury, and Mitch held himself steady until he was close enough to throw himself out of the Chadmobile and towards the enemy tank.
He knew this wouldn't be easy. But it was a hell of a lot better of a choice than trying to fight that guy while he was driving, that was for sure.
"Gotcha, keep the seat warm for me!" Igno said as he made room for Vivian to take the wheel by opening the driver's door and hanging off the side of the monster truck, leaping onto the tank as soon as they drove close enough, wasting no time in climbing the threaded giant and looking for a hatch or anything of the sort.

Mitch and Igno hurl themselves at the huge tank...and succeed in landing. They're both pretty experienced at this stuff. Igno does spy a hatch. But he would want to hurry. Electricity sparks are popping on the top of the tank. Electric shots are going straight up and flying right over your heads, getting closer. Somehow, the idiot driving it is actually shooting through the tank itself to get at you. He also seems to be trying to turn to run over Vivian, who's yelling with excitement as she takes the wheel of the monster truck.
"Please tell me you've got something to toss in there!" Igno asked as he got to work on cutting open an entrance.
Mitch followed Igno as he scrambled up the side of the tank. There wasn't much time - lightning was arcing through the air in every way it possibly could, and the tank was clearly warming up its anti-infantry defenses.
"I've got a few options!" yelled Mitch over the din as Igno started slicing through the vehicle's armor. "How much boom do you want?"

"Depends! Do you want to drive away with that thing?" Igno asked with a smirk.
For a moment, Mitch was tempted to say no, just for the hell of it. But then he realized; it'd be a hell of a lot cooler to drive this back to Nether Vegas. And that was why you did things, right? Not because they were easy.
"Frag grenade, then?"
"If you want the driver splatted all over the inside, sure! Otherwise, just go for something non-lethal, I'll drag'em out of there...!"
As Igno starts to make his own entrance, they both hear a deep rumbling roar. Something like a very dramatic shout of "YOU" mixed with the rumbling of a storm cloud. In fact, a storm cloud is gathering right above the area with the amount of electricity being pumped out continously. If you had to guess, your rather creative and wild plan to abscond with an actual tank might have struck a negative chord with the god Jupiter...but then again, this is Jupiter. If you cared about his opinion, you wouldn't be out here, would you?
Meanwhile, a copse of tree sized green sphere lollipops has sprouted on or near the track (with this kind of race its hard to tell where the boundary is). What appears to be a black rabbit with emerald eyes is sitting on top of one of them as if this was perfectly natural.
This is Cheri, a.k.a Cheerful Rabbit Interface, a personable AI program in the shape of a rabbit that has somehow been imbued with divine sourced powers around cheerfulness and confectionary.
It was heading towards the race because it sensed an unusual flavour of joy, but it had become distracted by what appeared to be a sapient level of fear and confusion coming from a cat. "Cats..." Cheri thinks. "They climb trees to escape danger right? Well I can't do trees but the next best thing that I can do..." and thus, green lollipops.
Waiting to see what happens with dogs and cat is going to keep Cheri from the race, but it'd be rude not to introduce itself. They have vehicles so it's not unreasonable they have comms...so it accesses its built in radio and broadcasts on all likely frequencies: "Helloo~!" in a slightly artificial voice that's so cheerful anyone listening can practically taste the smile.
Just as she sends out the transmission, a strange vehicle equipped with a turret, ion engines, and an emblem that says:CDISF comes out of a crack in spacetime.A sound of confusion and anger comes out of the cabin, followed by arguing.
You told us this would be the right dimension! Instead, I received a transmission that sounded like Caroline on a sugar high, and- Hey, it's not my fault! You don't have to be livid just because the computer miscalculated! Honestly, the nerve...
Hey Echo, good to meet you, but could you please stop by the discussion thread for a quick chat before you post further?
Storm clouds began to roll in, thunder in the sound of English - the crystallized wrath of God. "Hey, Igno!" Mitch yelled over the din. "I think we pissed off Jupiter!"
Then he withdrew a flashbang grenade. As an electronic voice dripping with sugar blared in through open comms and another vehicle appeared to teleport into existence, Mitch kept his eyes on the prize, unpinned the flashbang, and tossed it through the hole Igno had made into the tank.
Then he switched to an open microphone. "You new folk might want to keep your distance! I mean, unless you like getting hit with a lightning bolt!''

Cheri looks at the new vehicle. "Well that doesn't happen every day, hop." it says to itself. It starts searching its data files for "CDISF".
Mitch's transmission causes it to turn its attention to the storm cloud and it tilts its head in puzzlement. That thing doesn't look natural. Where did it come from? Where's it going?
It broadcasts back in response to Mitch: "It can be fun from time to time. I appreciate your concern though! My name is Cheri! Shouldn't you be taking your own advice, hop?"
"Well I never was the smartest kid in the class!" Mitch shot back, in the middle of what could be best described as an "active clusterfuck".
Cheri wasn't sure how well this person knew what they were doing, but they were clearly committed, and under stress. Discarding suggestions about rubber boots as being inappropriate, Cheri instead opted for reassurance.
"Don't worry! According to my data, nine out of ten people survive lightning strikes, so if you have burn medication to hand you'll almost certainly be fine, hop!" transmitted Cheri, deciding to omit what the data said about the state of those survivors.
Kaiji hears the rumbling outside and decides to wildly mash buttons until the tank stops. "i just hope this wont get me shocked" he comments aloud
"Eh, suit's got a few conductors in it. I should be fine so long as lightning doesn't strike twice! Which, in this place? It very well might!"
