Like most GoBots, Street Heat has numerous abilities because of robotic body. He can survive in space and is super-humanly strong and tough. He can fly in robot mode and project energy blasts from his hands. His body heals quickly when supplied with energy. He can turn into a car.
In "Escape from Elba" Street Heat was one of the Guardians charged with security on Elba during Cy-Kill's imprisonment, like Royal-T Street greatly disliked the boring role he had been given. This was seized on by the Renegade, who controlled the pair and set them against their fellow guards, and then against the Guardian squad Turbo led to investigate an abortive SOS sent by Heat Seeker. He was left guarding Turbo, Blaster and Heat Seeker on Elba when Cy-Kill made a bid to invade Earth, and roundly defeated when Matt freed the trio of Guardians.
Street Heat was featured in the 2016 Ask Vector Prime story Echoes and Fragments, set during the events of The Transformers: The Movie. The manipulations of the evil Gong and Sideways resulted in various GoBots swapping places with characters during the events of that film. Street was blasted into oblivion by Soundwave and his cassettes at the battle of Guardian City.
