“The road is no place for the weak.”
CAMSHAFT is a scout for the Autobots and a member of Remote Patrol Six. He's eager for the chance to show off his stuff with some action. He is secretly loyal to Rodimus and Alpha Trion's rebellion against Optimus Prime. He has no fear of car accidents, and with good reason: his lightning-fast automated reflexes allow him to pulverize any vehicle that approaches within 4 inches of his metal frame. The arrogant confidence he has about his own safety leads to reckless driving, about which Optimus Prime couldn't care less as long as Camshaft's roadside homicide spreads fear across the planet. Camshaft has no concern about the lives of his planet's native inhabitants. Camshaft's aggressive nature is a boon in battle against the peaceful Decepticons, and Optimus is wouldn't change that even if he could.
In thickly-armored Ford Thunderbird NASCAR stock car mode, Camshaft's rear fenders can piston outward, slamming into anyone driving next to him. His rear window and trunk also conceals a high-energy plasma beam projector with a range of 2 miles. The same weaponry is available to him in his robot mode, supplementing a machine gun and his powerful fists, each capable of 30 punches per minute, with each punch having a force of 80,000 psi. Converting to an offensive mode while in the act of driving sometimes causes Camshaft to lose control of his driving. As it is unlikely that he will back off from any confrontation, he often finds himself overmatched by an opponent. Although Camshaft is a professed huge fan of NASCAR, his favorite parts are the crashes.
Remote Patrol Six is named such because they are the sixth group sent out on patrol (the first five have been killed), not because they have to maintain six members at all times.
Of the Six, Kup, Camshaft, and Warpath are secretly working for Alpha Trion. Downshift is an undercover agent of the Autobot Secret Police, spying on the members of the Six for their suspected seditious ties. Powerglide and Sandstorm are comparatively innocent, and therefore very likely to die in the inevitable crossfire.
