Down Force (FansProject)
Down Force is a third-party Transformer homage to the 1986 Transformers Stunticon Drag Strip. He transforms into a Caparo T1, which despite its race car looks, it actually a 2 seater, road worthy sports car. He combines with the other members of his team to form the giant robot M3.
Other third-party Transformer homage to Drag Strip include the BTS Teletran Kit, which includes a gun for Universe Drag Strip.
FansProject first teased a silhouette of M3 at TFcon 2012.
In January 2013 FansProject FansProject put prototype images of Down Force and Last Chance on their web site.
In February 2013 TFsource posted color images of Down Force and Last Chance to their web site.
Down Force was released in June 2013.

The moonbase2 podcast for June 17th, 2013 covered Down Force final images in the news.
