Function: Road Warrior
“The road is no place for the weak”
Has no fear of car accidents—can pulverize any vehicle that approaches within 4 inches. Reckless driver due to arrogant self-confidence. Unconcerned with humans’ safety. Aggressive in battle car mode rear fenders convert to powerful fists capable of 30 punches per minute and trunk turns into high-energy plasma beam projector...same weapons in robot mode. Loses driving control when using weapons in car mode.
“If war is the only reason to live, then living isn't worth it.”
Fought for so long on .Cybertron he wondered whether to continue... nothing pleased him until arrival on Earth ...here he delights in everything...all fresh and new to him...likes children...calls them mini-men and mini-women. Has magnetic-guided ground-to-air rocket launchers on shoulders in robot mode... also can be used in car mode...30 mile range … rust rifle weakens foes with stream of liquid oxidizing agents. Not effective versus non-ferrous foes.
“The race is not important; the finish line is.”
Road-racing his passion--considers it Earth's main cultural advantage over Cybertron. Only cares about winning … he'll fly to win a race, do whatever's necessary to win a fight. Goes 190 mph in car-mode...can sprout wings from doors and fly...range 700 miles ... speed 300 mph. Hood converts to twin hi-powered machine guns … Same abilities in robot mode not as good a flier. Overall not as good a flyer as most flying opponents.
