Vehicles and Design Sheets

Car Wars® Vehicle Designer

The Car Wars® Vehicle Designer is an Excel spreadsheet that can create almost any car, cycle, trike, or racing vehicle you want! It has a great pair of pages to print that includes your design info and combat page, making it easy to check at tournaments.

We hope to have a full online guide soon. For now you're welcome to take a look at the Vehicle Design page and its Expanded version to see how it looks.

The CWVD requires Excel 97 or higher on Windows and Excel 98 or higher on the Mac. It does not work with the Excel Viewer or OpenOffice.org and probably won't work with other spreadsheet programs.

Many thanks to Rick Cross and Sean Peterson for their great work on previous versions of the CWVD!
