"You think I look good now, you should see me coated in your fuel and oil."
SLICKSPIN thinks himself a better driver than the Stunticons, even boasting that he can out-drive most Autobots. However, it's not so much pure skill that makes him so good but technology. A combination of oil-secreting ports and traction hooks in his wheels allow him to create his own trail of oil, sliding and gripping the road as necessary. Slickspin truly believes that he is one of the hottest machines on the road, especially when covered in his enemy's vital fluids. He loves the look of spent energon or blackened oil on his armor, and will move in to fight in close quarters for that purpose. It is at this range that he can bring a pair of pneumatic lances to bear. These lances are stored in his forearms in robot mode and in his hood in vehicle mode. Slickspin transforms into a 1974 Pontiac Firebird, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 230 mph and sustaining them for up to 200 miles. Boosters allow him a maximum speed of 450 mph for up to 30 miles. He is further armed with a set of rapid-fire 'Nailguns' which fire three-pound spikes, capable of piercing titanium armor plating or embedding into the road to form a deadly obstacle for vehicles. He can utilize these for full 360-degree coverage in a controlled spin-out.
Mar 06 - Excursion
- Hello, uglies. Just out for a little excursion over here in the US. They've got a real traffic problem. Little squishy kids thinking they can outdo us in just about everything...you'd think the Autobots would thank us for cleaning up their garbage, but no. I get shot at. And all for trying to keep a bunch of wreckless youths off the road. It's insanity. But there it is. Some Autobot flier, which I won't even start on how many kinds of wrong that is, decided that he'd rather have useless waste laying around all over. He showed up as one of those US jets...the stealth ones. Very reflective windshield...well, maybe not anymore, but it was at one point. Probably walking with a limp, now. Anyway, once I'm back to my normally glorious self, I'm heading back over there. If any of you self-proclaimed "masters of the road" want to join me, I'd be happy to show you who owns them...but I'll understand if you want to concede the point and stay home.
- February 10 - Snowplows to the Rescue - When a huge snowstorm shuts down a major highway in Pennsylvania, Slickspin decides to see if there's any mayhem to be had.
