The Jump Start Hat is a wearable hat in Platform Racing 2. Announced on 2011-06-24 as an unnamed prize to get Jiggmin's Folding at Home group into the top 100 teams, it was later released on 2012-01-30.[1][2]

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

Ability

Starting a match while wearing the hat gives the player a 3 second head start by skipping the countdown with a Speed Burst. Picking it up also gives them 1/3 of a normal Speed Burst, allowing them to catch up or increase their lead.

Obtainability

The Jump Start Hat has been a random prize in levels during Happy Hours with at least one other person since the mode's introduction on 2012-05-02.[3] For the 3 months prior, the hat was given to anyone who logged in as a celebration for making it into the Top 100 teams.
