...or just use the links in the original post to the thread.

The AADA News Online Archive only has the columns from Pyramid Issues 10 to 30. One of the first nine issues of Pyramid had a great 3-D arena design called the Boom Tube.

I am glad to know the links in the Sticky Post are still functional. I thought they became invalid when the Pyramid Archive was removed from the Internet, the reason I reprinted my own Pyramid Car Wars Article page.

Has someone compiled a list of the Autoduel articles that are more GURPS than Car Wars? '86 - '90 really seems to be the Golden Age for Car Wars: tons of GURPS releases included a 'GURPS Autoduel' cross-over notes, like 3rd Edition Basic Book's solo adventure where Dai could be TL8 Dreg carrying a .22 pistol instead of a fantasy thief with a dagger...

A list of Autoduel-centric articles would be great - even for straight CW players looking for more background I think.

There appear to be a number of discrepancies/changes/mistakes (?) in the online text to the original magazines and/or original Pyramid online Archive ( from 2001-2004 ? ). Text & rules on High Torque Motors for example . Can these be possibly highlighted or changed if incorrect - or marked "Improved" etc if new rules apply to avoid more confusion on what are currently correct rules please .

Print Pyramid ran from 1993-1998. If there are errors between the print version and the Pyramid Online version please post them and I can verify and note them. (All of the online articles that came from Print Pyramid have their source issue listed at the top of the article.)

From discussion in another thread we found that Racer wasn't using the final version of the 2051 Catalog Update article, so nothing needs to be noted there.

I can look for my paper copies.. IIRC, HTMs were $100 or maybe $200 per wheel, double accel up and half max speed. The idea was to make electrics competitive with gas in the arena again-- acceleration is king there.
