Errors I noticed on quick browse:

- Pop-Out Concealment: Section detailing this weapon mount modification is incorrectly in the Mechanical Arms chapter instead of the Weapon Mount Concealment chapter.

- None of the drones/vehicles appear to have legality ratings.

- [p11] Horizon-Flynn Pilum has two statblock entries but no mention of what the second statblock is for.

- Gun Ports have a "Rating" of 0.5. Is this intended to mean a Mod Slot cost of 0.5? Or maybe a CF cost of 0.5 would make more sense, as gun ports really wouldn't have that much effect on the structure but definitely would affect passenger space.

- [p38] Ferrari Appaloosa is noted as having 5 turreted heavy weapon hardpoints, but the statblock has only 1 heavy weapon turret and 2 standard weapon hardpoints.

- [p42] Thundercloud Morgan noted as having a heavy weapon turret, but statblock lists only a standard.

- [p44] BMW Super Bug is described as driving up walls and even across ceilings, but statblock does not include Gecko Grip mod.

- [p75] Goodyear Commuter-47 LTA is noted as being difficult to mod, but this is not reflected in the statblock.

- Inconsistant use of "VTOL" and "Rotorcraft". Some rotorcraft are labeled Rotorcraft. Some described as using rotors are labeled VTOL. Others are labeled VTOL but do not otherwise indicate what sort of drive system they use.

-[p95] Vulcan Systems Utility-One drone has no price.

- [96] First Responder mentions hardpoints for winch and manipulator arms, but this is not reflected in statblock.

- [98] Vend-X lists two turreted mounts, but the statblock indicates two standard mounts.

- [106] Hawker-Siddley Bat mentions secondary propulsion landing claws but this is not reflected in the statblock.

- [p109] Hawker Siddley Harrier lists two weapon hardpoints but the statblock only mentions one.

- [p111] Hawker-Siddley Rescue Harrier is noted as being a Medevac unit for recovering injured metahumans, but statblock does not mention any Medevac mods. Additionally, the listed Medium drone rack is missing from the statblock.

- [p117] "Prize" should be "price" in the sentence, "A servant for everyone? Not at that prize. This is just another rich person’s toy."

- [p125] What is a "Core Mod Slot"? (p124, Additional Hardpoints) Is this intended to be "Chassis Mod Slot"?

- [p138-139] SunCell missing stat block.

- [p147] Expanded Ammo Bins dialogue is in the chapter for Drones, rather than the Weapon Mount chapter preceding.

- [p172] Specialist: sentence ending with "less good at other things," ends with a comma instead of a period.

Will update post as I find more.

To be fair, that's consistent with CRB also having them all as legal.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

Oh, also, Chase Combat handwaves what your actual Speed is.  However, in order to calculate a Crash, you need to know it in m/ct.  Didn't see any special rules on picking what that speed is in Chase Combat, leaving another rules gap for the GM to wing and negotiate on the fly.  Not hard to work out, just establish at the outset "about how fast" the chase speeds are in KPH/MPH.  Just something else that's not present even in the form of advice.

Does the Ďridesí deck that has just come out have more pics or just reproducing those in the core and Double Clutch? Donít mind paying a bit for flavour art but wonít bother if itís all the same!!

Looks like from the PDF preview on DriveThru RPG that each vehicle card in Drives has artwork.

Oof, I acutally didnīt notice...
The thread popped up in Recent Posts, from there, itīs easy to overlook the category.   
"Firing Line adds a ton of Perks that modify Attack and Defense ratings"

"Cool, does this mean that the whole AR/DR comparison has a bigger impact now?"

"Haha No :D"

Thank you all for the extra sets of eyes going over Double Clutch.  I broke the other discussion out into its own thread.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, youíre fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

P61 After the factory ships entry Kane's comment is a duplicate of the one on p54 and makes no sense!

I'm not sure if it's intentional, but some vehicles have a higher Accel and/or Speed Interval than their Top Speed.  I can only assume this might be purposeful because people are expected to be tinkering these various ratings (the book is all about that for sure).  If they crank the Top Speed rating up, it would mean they don't necessarily also need to adjust the other stats, since they are already good.  So if the stats reflect potential rather than possible, then all is well.  I haven't looked too deeply, so maybe there's even a clarification on that in the text. 

If it's on purpose/explained somewhere, by all means disregard this thought.

If you want the honest brutal truth ... it's because of different authors doing different parts. While we posted our stuff about building and modifying for others to use when statting out thier vehicle designs it wasn't necessarily used consistently and when Hjal and I did reviews of the vehicle stats we caught a lot of mistakes but obviously missed a few.

Oh okay.  Understandable given the situation.  Sound like scouting for those would help for a later fix.

Doing a look through for that issue specifically it looks like it's just the Maser Beach Ball and Evo Roller Bombs that have a higher Accel than Top Speed.  There's a couple others where the Speed Interval is higher than Top Speed, but I seem to recall seeing a Redlining rule that can boost Top Speed temporarily, so maybe that's fine/intentional for that stat.  The vehicles all look fine at a glance, it's just the slower/smaller drones that I would recommend someone do a double check on to see if they need it vs RAI.

Pg 108, Hawker-Siddley Harrier

Quote
The Harrier has a distinct visual profile that, when viewed from a distance, causes many to mistake it as a regular tilt-rotor aircraft when itís in horizontal flight. When it switches to horizontal flight or is in hovering mode, the main wings move forward approximately sixty degrees, with the wingtip turbo-fan engines tilting to maintain lift. At the droneís base and tail, two smaller turbo-fans also pivot to assist. When it returns to horizontal flight,

Bolded/underlined word should read "vertical" to make sense.
