Since disruptor is akin to the old timewarp, I thought "warp" could be rendered with the bending of space
Image
Adding the speed arrows of firestorm, bent as well, an idea would be something along the lines of:
Image
or if you want to stand aside from the firestorm, simply:
Image
Otherwise, classic timewarp, closer to RC, would look like:

Charging:
Unrelated to the disruptor, upon charging we could also change the icon, like so:
Image
messing with the icon final state, but the rotating fill looks ok (whatever the color, again, this is an example)

these look great!

either the second or third for me - you could even get away with having the warp only and removing the boost line from the second and removing the clock legs and bells from the third (depending on how things look on screen and how players read them).

I like the way the animation works too and the suggestion that the icon change in some way.

Full "absorbing" UI gif. It's a rough suggestion. Regardless of the animation/color/design, this mechanics offers depth GRIP doesn't have.
Lego Racer had 3 levels of stacking back in the days AND I WAS 13 YEARS OLD (back in 99)!!!

Image
  • green + red orbs is barrage (doesn't work)
  • green + green works (suggestion only)
  • notice how it was possible to upgrade either firestorm OR aegis = consequencefull choice
  • notice how everything is understandable without any "arrows" or "text" or "tutorial"
Would go in the way of curing GRIP's current miss:
  • meaningful choices and
  • lasting stakes
