At the BB Saloon, Zonnette puts a bandaid on PP Rappa's nose. Gynamo is pretty sure of him, they all laugh. PP Rappa puts too pieces of paper in his nose. Grotch hooks him up with a jet-pack like device with a huge battery. Meanwhile, Youko is in a sauna trying to loose weight. She weighs herself, finds out she is 47.6 kg, which is about 105 pounds. Needless to say, she is not too thrilled with this news. She runs off. She is later seen jogging, stops to look at cakes in a display window but continues on jogging.

Their boss comes in with a box of cake, but they are too busy staring at Youko. Their boss approaches her, she greets him. The gang knows what he is going to say but, it is too late... about shaping up. He laughs, but she is shocked, drops her calculator. Everyone else winces. Their Accel Changers ring, the boss hears this and wonders what it is. Dappu appears behind him with a huge sign telling them to hurry up. They run off. He asks them what about the cake.

PP Rappa runs off and the four chases after him. They run ahead of him and they end up by the shore. In the base, Youko complains to Dappu. PP Rappa throws another number at the four, Dappu and Youko see it. They are in pain. Youko notices his scepter and is more determined than ever. She believes Rappa screwed up her scale with his magic and made her believe she was fat. PP Rappa now has a huge number 9 to throw and destroy them. Youko arrives in her 'hero' outfit and accuses him. He has no idea what she is talking about. She runs and transforms. She leaps and kicks the number out of his hands. The number makes a huge explosion. She introduces herself as Pink Racer and fights him. He throws a bomb at her and it doesn't damage her. She kicks and then punches him. She grabs him by his legs and swings him around. He falls down. She knocks him in the chin into water. The Carranger reunite and congrulate her. He eats a imo-youkan and grows huge. RV Robo is formed. PP Rappa takes out a #1, looks at a tower and makes it a cannon and shoots them. He looks at ducks in a pond and turns his #2 into a huge plastic duck to use a sound attack on them. Blue uses Plagnade Spark to knock the duck out of his hands. He then pulls out a #3 to make a baby ear, but realizes that doesn't work. Pink is tired of his tricks and does Pink Vehicle Punch. They then finishes him off with their finisher. Back at the suana, Youko and Natsumi check out Youko's weight, but it turns out to be the same. The others try cheering her up at the fountain outside. She is touched by them all. She then figures what she should eat next: a sundae or chocalate. They freak. She then pushes them, saying it is their treat.
