The Jump Start Hat is a wearable hat in Platform Racing 2. Originally announced on 2011-06-24 as a prize for getting Team Jiggmin's Folding at Home group into the top 100 teams,[1] the hat was later released on 2012-01-30 as the ninth hat in the game.[2]

The hat features two batteries connected to it that are powered by jumper cables, along with a lone plug hanging off its side.

Ability

Starting a match while wearing the hat allows the player to start before the countdown clock finishes with a speed burst item, giving them a three second head start. Picking up the hat also gives the user 1/3 of a normal speed burst, briefly allowing them to catch up while they were stunned or gain the lead.

Obtainability

The Jump Start Hat was made winnable as a random prize in levels during the special Happy Hour mode with at least one other person when the mode was introduced on 2012-05-02.[3] In the three months prior to its addition, the hat was automatically awarded to any user who logged into the game as a celebration for making it into the Top 100 teams.
