Triskadecaphobia: Camper;

Yikes! And I thought my Lux w/ 8 HMGs was a scary vehicle to run! The problem with this camper in a duel in their division is that one good salvo and they're taken out. Would work in a duel w/o very many people, but our high division games usually have 8-12 people, would get off one salvo, maybe 2 and be toast. Good news is, 1 salvo prob = one kill! :-)

Mangler looks pretty vicious, I'll prob add it to our stack of Div 100s, run an Annual $100K Blood Bath, looks to be a good contender.

Class, luxury and power are key components to the successful street racer. The MACHINATOR features a 200lbs ram plate and armored body effects all the way around. The metal flake paint job just screams, “Look at me!” If you are in to racing for pink slips, than you should be driving the MACHINATOR from Furious Machines.

MACHINATOR
Compact, X-Hvy Chassis, Hvy Active Suspension, 200 cid w/TH/BP/SC, 10 gal. Duelling Tank, Driver, 4 FP SB PR Radials, Ram plate, HD ABS, HD Shocks, LRFP Spoiler & Airdam, N2O, 2 5pt LRFP Wheel Guards back, 2 5pt LRFP Wheel Hubs front, Sloped LR FP Armor F60(RP) R35 L35 B40 T15 U15, ACC 15, HC 5, Top 110, 4424lbs., $41,393

Here is a high priced odd vehicle for those outdoorsman types with more money they they know what to do with.....

The ultimate in hunting vehicles, the QUAKE is a redneck special gone top end. It features state of the art weaponry and survival gear with enough cargo space to carry all the supplies you need and bring home all the game you catch. So come down to Hot Rod Industries and take this beauty out for a spin.

QUAKE
Pickup, X-Hvy Chassis, O/R Suspension, Sport PP, Driver, 6 O/R Solids, Infrared TwL front, 2 lgl HRs in Rocket Platform top, Roll Cage, IrSS, Searchlight, Armored Beer Fridge, HD Shocks, HRSWC, HDABS, Brushcutter, LD Radio, Cargo 460lbs & 9 Spaces, Armor F35 R35 L35 B35 T20 U20, ACC 5, HC 1 (2 O/R), Top 102.5, 7800lbs., $53,960

ummm. don't Gauss Guns require electrical power to work ... so a gas engined car would need a laser battery for it's GG to work.

That depends on whether or not you've heard of something called an
"Alternator":

http://www.misterfixit.com/alterntr.htm

which apparently the doofus who made the ruling on Gas Engines and
PU-using Weapons *hadn't*....

(Headlights? Taillights? Radios? Nah -- those are powered by Ether Waves....)

Game mechanics... If you need a rational then you could say that for the Gauss Gun to be able to fire every second that you need something with a continuous amp/voltage not something that fluctuates like an alternator does.

Yeah..

You are right..

its to bad that sometimes those VDR spread sheets cant have all the little pop ups reminding of some of the requirements for weapons.

Well, I just removed the extra mag, added the battery and loaded on the armor. Not as many shots available as I would like

But oh well, cest la vive...
