The top version is a faithful reconstruction of the 2037 design - basically shrinking the Super PP to a Large (who the heck uses the Super anymore) - and using the space and weight for an IFE. The second version is better because I don't think 3 HDFOJs are needed, especially from the sides. By shrinking the HDFOJs, I can get component armor. But to get the price under 25 I needed to reduce some things, in this case it was the laser-web system to just the top.
I'm also using an idea from ADQ v7n1 which stated:
"If the Brotherhood only feels safe driving on 18-point tires, then the rest of us have to take a hard look at solids or better for our vehicles. A good alternative is the steel-belted, fireproof PR tire. This wonder of technology weighs the same as a solid, has the same DP, costs only $100 more and won't catch fire."This is enough of a fun idea and I think I can use it for these fire based cars. Especially since they nerfed the spike resistance of solids.
Also on the fire kick, I thought I could turn the 218 pts of plastic into an effective metal armor configuration. Metal only really works when you have enough of it, and 8 is a minimum effective thickness for me.
