Great Series
15 August 2006 | by (Peoria, AZ, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really great series with an engaging story line,a really good mix of 2d and 3d animation and fully developed characters that are neither all good or all bad but each has motivations that regulate how they act. The story takes place on a future earth where there have been many technological advances and contact with other intelligent species has been made. It focuses on a 15 year old girl, Eva, who goes to meet with her father after he missed her birthday. He turns out to be such a jerk and doesn't recognize her that she pretends to be Molly, a kid with a good skill at repairing racers. Her father, Don Wei, manages racing teams and is known as the best race manager on the planet. Before long, the president (of the world?), has recruited Don Wei to lead a team to race in an interplanetary competition on which the earth depends on winning. Molly stows away to the race planet to be with her father and to prove to him that she is something to be proud of.
