Wondering if anyone is still playing this out there?

just about to get it having lost my original to a flood back in the late 80's and really excited - time to start building a resource library for it as well I think as there seem to be a few bits around

I think Battlecars was my first hobby boardgame, bought at Manchester Games Workshop (as I recall, I wanted to get Car Wars but they only had the expansions in stock). For the first time in twenty years or more, I dug out my copy to play recently with my son (aged 8) and my wife and we had a blast. Of course they both ganged up on me and rocketed/rammed me to pieces in no time. I think it stands up really well today, though those little red counters soon mount up.

Absolutely love it! IMHO there's nothing to touch the physics and handling this game offers.

It's still a good game, the only thing it lacked was a car design. Battlebikes was a really fun expansion. I remember playing Dark Future when it came out and found it very slow in comparison. There was something about building claustrophobic arenas that really focused the battle compared to road tracks of DF. I've had it for 30yrs and I'm sure be with me for 30 more!

Anyone know if there is a reason the rules and other resources available online havent been uploaded here?

The reason is probably Games Workshop - there was a period on BGG when pretty much nothing was being loaded to GW game pages following the Great C+D Scare of Oh-Nine (or whenever it was).
