When a car wipes out and flips – is it out of action after does it flip over onto its roof.?January 6, 2018 at 10:39 am #3038
No, flipping just causes damage to the vehicle and moves it, it doesn’t wreck it (unless the 2 damage remove the vehicle’s final hull points).January 6, 2018 at 12:07 pm #3040
Excellent. Thanks for the clarification. I thought it doesn’t say it’s wrecked but was confused between flip / not flip.January 14, 2018 at 11:49 am #3127
I was looking for clarification on this rule also.
Can’t a flipped car end up on it’s roof? Seems overly lucky that cars land back on their wheels every time … a flip would seem a pretty drastic outcome.
6: left or right side

Seems overly harsh IMO. I think your being too literal and ‘flip’ in my view is just damage done due to lack of control. Buggies are built for handling such and thus can avoid the damage.
Otherwise, the loss of handling is too impactful for the enjoyment in the game.January 19, 2018 at 2:45 am #3145
Yeah, I like to think of the action as cinematic – so if a car flips then wrecks, sure it ends up on its roof (as per the rules on wrecking), otherwise, its just an ‘oh crap’ moment for the driver.February 11, 2018 at 10:35 pm #3256
I’m reading the rules to make sure I have it correct and this is where my confusion comes in
Resolving a wipeout (pg 29)
3.1 make flip check
3.2 if fails suffer 2 hits
3.3 if fails move medium straight
– collision window –
3.4 reduce to gear 1
3.5 remove hazard tokens
3.6 next player rotates vehicle to any facing
– collision window –
So – if the flip check fails, proceeds 1x medium straight, check for collisions and ends in gear 1 and rotated by another player to any facing, check again for collisions
If the flip check succeeds (the car doesn’t flip) then reduce to gear 1, remove tokens and the car gets rotated, check for collisions.
But under Flip Check it says:
“When a vehicle suffers a wipeout, it must make a FLIP CHECK to see if it
- flips over and rolls
” which says it will roll over. Does it always land back on it’s wheels? I guess so?February 11, 2018 at 10:37 pm #3257
Sorry for the wonky formatting, was trying to underline “flips over and rolls”February 12, 2018 at 11:20 am #3263
Sorry, yes, “flips over and rolls” is pure thematic description, the car always lands back on its wheels.February 12, 2018 at 9:01 pm #3270
Thanks Mike !
