Default question about compendium differences

So I have the blue "2nd edition" compendium, but the errata I find posted online doesn't match the pages in the book I own. For example there is errata for page 143, but my book only has 112 pages!

One difference I've found between the rules in the recent "Classic" and what I have is that the targeting modifier for paint/smoke is -1 per half inch rather than a flat two.

I'd love to find out what the other changes where that were made between my printing of 2nd and the final one, but I'm not sure where!

Thanks.

The latest compendium is the green/black one (called the 2.5e Compendium)

http://www.sjgames.com/car-wars/games/compendium/

The 'blue' one is older, there were rules updates. I think the errata refers to the green/black compendium

Couldn't give you a list of changes from the two but look at the year of publication and compare it to Uncle Al's Catalog from Hell which was also an attempt to finalize the rules.

I believe the 2.5e Compendium is the definitive rulebook on second edition CW because it was the last to be published, followed by UACFH

All of that is incorporated in my book, which says second edition but has the blue cover.
