shuttle car race was approaching, he spent most of his savings just buying this second-hand shuttle car, and there was not that much money left to replace the new engine.

    “Where is the shuttle now?” Ruan Shiqing asked.

    “At my house.
It's too bulky and can't start now, so I have to go home and fix it.”

    “Then wait a moment, I'll bring the tools to see you.” After Ruan Shiqing finished speaking, he asked 09 to pack his toolbox.
He went upstairs to inform the puppy and the little mermaid that he was going out.

    The little mermaid nodded sensibly, indicating that he would be optimistic about staying at home.

    The mermaid was so troublesome, once on dry land, he can't even go out.
No wonder those mermaids stayed in Skarn Star all year round, never going anywhere.

    Rong Heng glanced at him and followed Ruan Shiqing.

    “You also have to stay at home.” Ruan Shiqing noticed that the little cub was following him step by step, pinched his armpit, picked him up, and swayed him.

    Rong Heng: ?? Why can't I go too? I'm not like a mermaid, I have legs and can walk.

    However, Ruan Shiqing just carried him back and put him on the cushion on the windowsill.
“Dad needs to go out to work and can't take you.” He used to be homeless, and the little brat was seriously injured, so he was really worried.
The situation was better now, so naturally, he couldn't carry the cub everywhere.

    “…” Rong Heng patted his hand away. If I can’t go, I won't go, I didn't really want to go anyway. He got down on the mat and turned to look out the window.

    After Ruan Shiqing went downstairs, he turned around and looked at the stairs with boredom.
The little mermaid floated to the surface, glanced at him secretly, and spit bubbles happily in the water.

    On the way to Luther's house, Ruan Shiqing checked the information about the racing shuttle on the Internet.
Only then did he know that the B3024 star's annual high-speed shuttle race is about to start.

    High-speed shuttle racing was a very primitive sport that has been passed down for thousands of years.
The racing shuttle was composed of an anti-gravity cabin and two independent jet engines.
The maximum speed could reach up to 1,500 kilometers per hour.
The racing process is full of dangers and accidents occur frequently, because the risk factor is too high.
It has long been banned by imperial law, but on remote planets, the sport remains popular.

    B3024 Star not only holds a high-speed shuttle race every autumn but also a gambling industry that rises along with the race.
Both had formed a complete and mature system and industrial chain on this planet.

    Autumn had arrived, and now the registration stage of the competition was approaching.
Many players who wanted to participate have already started to prepare their own chariots.
Luther was obviously one of them.

    Ruan Shiqing didn't say much about this dangerous game.
After arriving at Luther's house, he first conducted a comprehensive inspection of the shuttle car.

    This shuttle car is obviously very old, and when it reached Luther, he don't know how many hands had been turned.
Not only was the exterior paint mottled, but even the control cables had exposed metal wires inside.

    He sat back and started the shuttle.
The jet engine ignited and burned, and the shuttle cabin vibrated violently, making a deafening hum, but it never moved.

    After several inspections and tests, Ruan Shiqing jumped out of the car and said, “The control cables and the engine are both seriously aged, and they can barely run.
The problem is the anti-gravity generator.”

    “After replacing the new anti-gravity generator, the car can drive normally, but I do not recommend you to use it to participate in the race.
It is not enough to support the high speed of the race.”

    Luther originally had no hope for this young repairman, but he didn't expect to find the problem within ten minutes of his arrival.
Jet engines can be much more expensive than antigravity generators, which is much better than he expected.

    He said happily, “Then please replace a new anti-gravity generator.
How much does it cost?”

    Ruan Shiqing thought he didn't understand what he meant, and emphasized again, “This shuttle is very old, if it participates in the competition, it may cause an accident.” The speed of the shuttle car can reach hundreds of kilometers per hour, and in the event of an accident, it will be life-threatening.

    “But there are a lot of accidents in the competition every year.
Participating in the high-speed shuttle racing is a gamble.” Luther shrugged and smiled nonchalantly.
“You are also an ancient human, right? You should be able to understand my feelings.
People like us, who don’t want to live humbly, can only gamble with their lives.”

    Compared to the powerful evolutionary people and the Bis people, ancient human beings are the weakest.
So much so that ancient humans are excluded from many jobs now, and if they want to get the same pay as Bis and evolved humans, they must work harder.

    Even though the empire has repeatedly emphasized racial equality, only the ancients themselves are most aware of the exclusion and oppression suffered by ancient humans in practice.

    Luther patted the old shuttle racing car and said softly, “Actually, ancient humans are not allowed to participate in high-speed shuttle racing, because ancient humans are weak in physical strength, endurance, and sensory perception.
Physiological aspects such as range are very weak, and the speed of the shuttle car is so fast that they think it is difficult for ancient humans to control.”

    “But anyway, I won't register my race when I sign up.” Luther laughed, “If you don't try it, how do you know that the ancient humans must be the worst?”
