Dueltrack and Vehicle
HTML conversion by Michael P. Owen, March 2000
These are the revisions in the latest editions of Dueltrack
and The AADA Vehicle Guide (Volume 1). These
changes are official.
P. 6: Change last paragraph, left column:
. . . The Economy tank has 2 DP and takes damage in the same
way other vehicular components do (treat the tank as
"cargo" on the Damage Allocation charts) . . .
Add a new paragraph after the first paragraph in the righthand column:
If, after losing the specified amount of gas, the tank is
empty, it is destroyed. However, if there is any fuel left, the
tank regains half its original DP. If this new DP is ever lost,
the tank is completely destroyed and loses all its fuel
Change the next paragraph to read:
Example: A 15-gallon Economy gas tank rolls one point of
damage, reducing its DP to 1. The next turn the tank receives
another point, breaching the tank. A die is rolled and comes up
3. Three times 20% is 60%, so 9 gallons of gas (60% of 15) is
immediately lost. If there were only 7 gallons of gas in the tank
to begin with, only one gallon would be lost -- in either case, 6
gallons would remain. Since there is gas remaining in the tank,
it now has 1 DP; any more damage will permanently destroy it. (If
the tank had only had 5 gallons of gas, the fust breach
would have drained and destroyed it.)
P. 23: Add to third paragraph:
At the speeds these vehicles will be going, they'll need the
help . . . and on the down side, due to their super-light (and
super-flimsy) frames, race cars take double damage in
rams, rolls and collisions! For this reason, the AADA usually
bars these vehicles from normal arena events.
