    If the Dreads were catching up running towards BB or Sideswipe, and those cars can go pretty fast, then I'd say maybe 75mph??:eek: 

    There is a shot where you clearly see how fast Crankase' legs are going as he throws cars out of his way, but who knows.

    I think it would be possible them to reach 70-80 mph while running. They're huge, so their legs cover a lot of ground with each stride.

    fast enough to catch up to a Ferrari and two sports cars, the dreads are obviously meant to be pursuit bots or hunters, not surprising that they could run fast as hell. Makes me wish they had survived to the final battle or that their was more of a battle on the highway

    you can clearly see how fast crowbar runs because his legs moving swiftly is very visible after the part when dutch says "oh my god im fired"

    faster than a POS corvette can run LOL....

    fucking dreads left the sad ass Driving Miss Daisy autobots behind...plus that "SHOOT THEM BEE" and the GATLING CANNON starts going full auto on the dread...did not seem to really do shit....The red car(dino) with his Hooks of death was the kill factor in that fight...

    Worth keeping in mind: these sportscar autobots were consciously "protecting" Sentinel, a giant, presumably slower, firetruck, and trying to keep themselves between him and the Dreads.
    Therefore, it's likely they weren't driving for all they were worth, giving the Dreads an easier time of catching up to them on foot

    One of the shots (don't know if it was a bigger slug or just a regular one) made a huge hit in damage on Hatchet which made him trip a little, then Dino hooked onto him and seemed to slow him down for another huge shot that brought 'em down for good. Dino then just used his momentum to toss him into another car.

    Crowbar - "Hey Crankcase, why can't we just dri--"
    Crankcase - "I don't remember asking you one god damn thing, Crowbar."
