Yeah, it made sense. They were the pit crew for the Xantium. It made sense that they were race cars. And it was a really good cross-media promotion. I also liked the blue and green guys, but the red was annoying.

Yeah, I didn't like the red one either. He could be a cannon-fodder. Top Spin and the other guy(Roadbuster?) looked cool.
Too bad these 3 aren't developed well. The NASCAR alt mode doesn't sense. I thought they're gonna be in a race track or something.
How could you find the Red one (Leadfoot) annoying? He didn't have that many lines and they were all relevent to the plot. The blue one (Topspin) you could hardley even see in robot mode. Roadbuster (green one) was awesome. Best design and character of them all! (well, i guess thats just my opinion
But back to the oringal question, i don't think he needed to kill any of them, but have a better battle at the end. I'm not sure if this has been brought up, but in the burger king promotional comerical, Optimus and Shockwave have an epic battle. Why couldn't that have been in the movie??
