Bio

Planes

Team Ripslinger’s bombastic racers Ned and Zed specialize in sabotage. Lacking the skills to actually outrace the competition, they simply eliminate it, propelling boss Ripslinger to victory every single time. Zed, a rowdy and reckless flier, and Ned, a strange bird himself, may not be the sharpest props in the hangar, but they have figured out how to draft off Ripslinger’s fame.[1]

Livery

Ned and Zed have liveries of colored in opposite fashion: while Ned is painted green with white wings and decorations, Zed is white with green wings. Ned's racing number is #0, while Zed's racing number is #00.
