|"If I can't beat ya' in battle, I'll beat ya' on the road."|
Downshift is a fast and courageous young Autobot. He relies on speed rather than strength to get him out of tight spots when battling the Decepticons. Although he is considered a good soldier by Optimus Prime and Hot Shot, he has been warned about rushing into battle without a solid plan of attack. Hot Shot, especially, can relate to this headstrong young Autobot and has vowed to mold him into a mature and seasoned warrior.

Downshift Additional Info
While the toy is a homage to Wheeljack, the toy is named Downshift because the Transformers Energon series is in continuity with Transformers Armada, which had already used the name Wheeljack for another character. Because Downshift is not meant to be the same character, he was given a different name in spite of the close resemblance.
