Yeah!
―Idle's response to some of Sandy's quotes

Idle Threat is a character in The Radiator Springs 500½.

Background

Physical appearance

Idle is painted black, with space frames that are red, and brown eyes. According to director Rob Gibbs, Idle's model is a Class 1 dune buggy.[1] His tires, which are large ones, do not have rims, and four headlights are carried on his roof rack. There is a red arch shape that contains a black arch-shaped line in it on his hood. He also has several sponsors such as Mood Springs, Clutch Aid, Nitroade, Lil' Torquey Pistons and Re-Volting, which are all the same ones that sponsor some of the Piston Cup racers.

Appearances

Cars Toons

Idle Threat makes his debut appearance in The Radiator Springs 500½, where he travels to Radiator Springs with Sandy Dunes, Shifty Sidewinder and Blue Grit, wanting to have a race against Lightning McQueen. McQueen agrees to this, having seen that the off-road racers are making insults about Stanley, the town's founder. Before the race starts, Mater tells them the course, so to make sure they know where to go.

When the race starts, Idle and the others are all battling for first place, and soon come to a fork in the path. Mater had told them to turn left, but he confused them when he said that it is right, not letting them know that he literally meant "correct". Due to the confusion, they all turn right, not knowing that they are going the wrong way. Rather than going along the race track, they all fall down cliffs, drive through a cactus patch, get covered in soot while going through the Tailpipe Caverns, and come across a spooky forest, where they all get freaked out by all of the corpses, and rush back to Radiator Springs, still unaware that they went on a different route.

Video games
