Yuko, Seiji, Sugmura and Shizuku are on their way to school. As traffic builds, Shizuku is scared that they will be late. Seiji tries to reassure her, before a black import tuner with a red flower paintjob races by, persuaded police cars. Seiji and Sugimura both comment on its coolness, while Shizuku is dismissive, criticizing the driver for his criminal traffic rule violations. Before any further conversation can occur, traffic is stopped by a pile-up of the police cars. Shizuku moans in defeat: they are sure to be late now.
Finally reaching school, Shizuku runs to class, leaving Seiji with her book bag. As Yuko goes to class while Seiji and Sugimura get their stuff, the same car swings into the parking lot, and they both watch as a boy named Shady and his girlfriend Shego step out of the car. Shady calls his friends over and shows them some new valves he installed commenting about the police not realizing it. Seiji reaches over to touch them but Shady slams the hood down and glares at them. He quickly puts down Seiji and Sugimura, referring to the latter as "Soccer Mom" to Sugimura's confusion.
After a brief argument, the bell rings and Seiji and Sugimura leave. Meanwhile, Shizuku bursts into class and starts babbling about why she is late. When she can't turn in her homework because she doesn't have her backpack, she gets an F for the day. She retreats to her desk in embarrassment and shame, as the other students snicker at her.
Later at lunch, Sugimura is eating popsicles, commenting on their deliciousness despite their simplicity, while Seiji uses the sticks to make a model car and Yuko sits and watching. Shizuku comes up and sits down moaning, before asking what Seiji is doing in bewilderment. When Seiji comments on building a car and having Sugimura fabricate him a drivers license, Shizuku suddenly snaps into a dressing-down as to why obeying the rules is not only important, but vital. Shady comes up and mocks the three, destroying Seiji's model car. Seiji gets up to fight but Shizuku intervenes, commenting on school rules about fighting. When Seiji gets upset, she sharply reiterates her statement and stalks away. Sugimura tells Seiji to not get upset and shows him a drawing of a car that he has designed.
Seiji and Sugimura acquire and rebuild a wrecked car, adding upgrades in the process to increase efficiency. Shizuku bursting in, ordering them not to drink the expired milk, serves only to confuse them.
Once the work is finished, Sugimura decides to celebrate with a popsicle. Seiji, trailing behind, decides to go for a spin "around the block."
The "around the block" turns into a downtown cruise, and all is going well until Shady and Shego meet him at a stoplight. Shady, mocking the older car Seiji is driving, challenges him to a street race.
They drive to a construction site where Shady explains the rules. Shego gets out and holds up a handkerchief, and when she drops it the race is on. As the two tear across the site, destroying construction projects and pulling tricks, Shady signals his cronies to block Seiji's efforts to get ahead. Seiji, in order to avoid these, pulls off incredible stunts, and manages to stay in the race to the end.
Through the efforts of his cronies, Shady manages to win. Seiji gets out to confront him, but the Police show up. Shady and the others scatter, leaving Seiji to be captured.
At the holding cell, a detective yells at Seiji, demanding the identity of "the Red Lotus". Seiji is surprised to hear the Red Lotus exists in another dimension. When Shizuku comes, she states the rules and the detective must let him go, though the detective swears revenge on the Red Lotus.
At home, Seiji tells the other teens about the exist of the Red Lotus. They are all shocked.
Shizuku tells Seiji that if he wants to drive he has to get a valid driver's license. Seiji passes the driver's test and then begins his test drive. Sugimura get his car from the impound at the same time.

Sugimura, with Yuko and Shizuku in Seiji's car, detects the arrival. Shizuku orders them to head for Seiji's location. When Sugimura goes no faster than the speed limit, citing Shizuku's own words about obeying the rules, she admits that there are times when rules must be broken.
