Default Backerkit Question - RED/YELLOW & BLUE/GREEN

Car Wars is back, baby!!! I'm so excited about this I went all in!
I think?

My question is,
With the Double Ace & the Double Ace Upgrade am I going to be getting all the content or will I be missing the cars from RED/YELLOW & BLUE/GREEN player packs?

I see that the RED/YELLOW & BLUE/GREEN player packs each come with 5 additional miniatures and 2 additional dashboards. So are those included in the Double ace with Double Ace Upgrade?

Thanks for helping me throw more money at SJG as I have been since 1985. :)

The player packs are effectively half the car components (and dashboard, and turning key) components of the base set.

Please read all of the descriptions closely. The red/yellow and blue/green packs both say:

"This is a duplicate part of the core set, and includes no extra content."

The Double Ace box includes the core game, which is made up of those two sets plus the rules box.

If you grab the following items, then you will have all of the new gameplay accessories and expansions:

* Car Wars Sixth Edition Double Ace
* Double Ace Upgrade Bundle
* Car Wars Playmat #1
* Car Wars Playmat #3
* Car Wars Uncle Al's Upgrade Pack

You'll also want the item named "Uncle Al Upgrade Pack" I think, if a complete set of everything is intended. Phil didn't include that in his bulleted list above, for some reason, but I think it contains new/unique things, not duplicates.
