―Transformation announcement via Drive Driver[src]

Based on a Formula One car, Shift Formula (シフトフォーミュラ Shifuto Fōmyura) is a sentient Shift Car of the Advanced System which enables Kamen Rider Drive to transform into Type Formula (タイプフォーミュラ Taipu Fōmyura), enabling him to move faster than Type Speed and manipulate wind as well as equipping him with the Trailer-Hou. This Shift Car was created by Krim Steinbelt himself a long time ago where, like Shift Deadheat, usage of it can enable Drive to resist a Super Heavy Acceleration field. However, Krim was forced to hide its existence as Shift Formula's usage is more dangerous than Shift Deadheat due to the presence of G-Forces on the Drive System.


Pit Crew

These Shift Cars are based on pit crew equipment, even bearing the nickname Pit Crew (ピットクルー Pitto Kurū). They have the ability to "fix" Type Formula whenever said Type is in a mechanical shock. Rinna made these Shift Cars from some leftover designs Harley Hendrickson gave her.

Type Formula in GP

Drive Type Formula in the driver's seat of Tridoron.

Driving Tridoron as he participated in the Rider Grand Prix, Drive assumed Type Formula while temporarily combining Tridoron with the Ride Booster Set, granting him a boost of speed which allowed him to overtake his Shocker Rider predecessors on their Rider Machines before jettisoning the Ride Boosters back and going head-to-head with Kamen Rider 3 and his TriCyclone, ultimately finishing the race in 1st place.

Facing Kamen Rider 4 for the last time, Drive assumed Type Formula and met #4's Rider Kick with his own, causing his opponent to break his right leg. Though #4 attempted to counter Drive's Formuladrop Kick with his Rider Punch, Drive increased his power by boosting the output with the Shift Brace six times than a further three times, and ultimately destroying #4 for good.

Shift Dash Formula

Shift Dash Formula (シフトダッシュフォーミュラ Shifuto Dasshu Fōmyura) is a hypothetical cosmetic upgrade of Shift Formula, following the example set by Shift High Speed and Shift Mega Max Flare. Type HIGH SPEED! The True Power! Type High Speed is Born!

As with the majority of the "upgraded" Shift Cars, Dash Formula exists only as a sound programmed into the DX Drive Driver.

Full Throttles

  • Type Formula's Full Throttle finisher is the Formuladrop (フォーミュラドロップ Fōmyura Doroppu), where Drive is covered in bright blue energy as he strikes the enemy with a flying kick. By lifting the Shift Formula Car seven times, Drive can enhance this attack's power in order to destroy the enemy completely. However, doing this may cause him to explode with the enemy as well.
    • During Type Formula's first use, its Full Throttle finisher was an unnamed Rider Punch which covered Drive in bright blue energy as he dashed straight into the enemy and struck them with a double handed punch. Unfortunately, the sheer power of this attack on top of the G-Forces pressed onto Drive's body ended up giving Shinnosuke whiplash.

The Trailer-Hou has two Rider Shooting Full Throttle finishers, both of which depend on a Shift Car being inserted into the Shift Landing Slot (シフトランディングスロット Shifuto Randingu Surotto) and up to two other Shift Cars being loaded into the Shutter Gate Panel (シャッターゲートパネル Shattā Gēto Paneru). Once the loading is complete, the Side Gauge Window (サイドゲージウィンドウ Saido Gēji Uindou) displays the word "FULL". Each of these attacks correspond to one of Drive's strongest Types.

  • Trailer Impact (トレーラーインパクト Torērā Inpakuto): While assuming Type Formula, or its Tire Exchanges, Drive inserts Shift Formula into the Shift Landing Slot before loading two other Shift Cars into the Shutter Gate Panel so that he may fire an enhanced projectile shot at the enemy.
