Does anyone else remember the following cartoons?

Wheeled Warriors - [star wars meets car wars via an LSD trip]
M.A.S.K.
Pole Position

And an Anime called Riding Bean that spun off from Gunsmith Cats?

M.A.S.K. I remember because I liked the toys but hated the show.

JimTullis,

Wheeled Warriors was written by The Great Maker himself, Babylon 5's creator J. Michael Straczynski. The entire series has been released on DVD.

I liked M.A.S.K. Some of the transformations for the vehicles stretched engineering limits, but any show with weaponized cars is worth watching. M.A.S.K. has been released on DVD. There was also a four-issue comic series released in the 1980s.

I remember Pole Position and liked the series. It may have performed better if it was released in the 1990s when computers and the Internet were more widespread.

I love Riding bean and gun smith cats for one reason, they are set in chiown, which is just south of me.....
also on a side note about riding bean, the creater came to a con back in the day and the local anime club pointed out every mistake that he did wrong and took him on a tour of the city. that lead to him doing his home work on the gun smith cats anime which you can tell just where in the city the anime is set.

Thanks! Sent him a tweet (well, mentioned him) and he 'liked' it. Pretty cool when you know someone like that read YOUR words. :-)

The late Aaron Allston wrote a set of variant Car Wars rules inspired by Megaforce. I can share the details via a direct message.[/QUOTE]

I would like a copy of this also if possible.

Was that the Autoventures module Ultraforce? I seem to recall that the Sky Cycle in there was actually pretty balanced for Car Wars.
