Whether these rule count as anything near official is another matter. Since the base rules don't create a situation where you might loose a limb, for example, replacing them is irrelevant.
You are correct. Mecha-Shan, the Rolling Tiger, was in the comic 'Car Warriors' (Marvel/Epic imprint, #2 July 1991; #3 , #4 Sept 1991.) Issue #4 gives stats on Mecha-Shan & the Rolling Tiger vehicle.

Was it only like 20 years ago we thought electric power plants were science fiction?

July 2017, 100 Years Ago Today: Eliminating the Driver Component...

Remember when robot drivers were a novelty? This article from early 2017 explores the "first roborace" and it's crashy-smashy conclusion. Meat vs Machine, who wins? It's obvious that in 2017, the humans still had the edge.

First autonomous Roborace event ends with a self-driven crash

and then the autonomous driving races really began!

Car Wars Sixth Edition should include the term "holmgang" in its terminology. :o)
