Update on Metatoy System: Vehicles

taken from Fast & Furious
There's an update on Metatoy System Vehicle on RAMMING. As pointed by Alexander Macey, in his words:

"Ran a test scenario, and ran into a weird situation. Using the tank and bike you have here, the bike rams the tank. Bike gets damaged pretty badly, does tiny damage to tank. That makes sense. Tank rams the bike, and the tank takes 10 damage, and destroys the bike. That seems kinda extreme damage to the tank. ramming is actually a more valid tactic for small hp vehicles, so a couple of cars could ram a tank to bits, but a tank could only ever ram two motorcycles before blowing up. "

So, I actually thought a lot about it and how to make it exciting without too much calculation or stressing the GM. I thought of doing the HD as damage stuff as I prefer rolling the damage BUT that's not really in my mind right now. I think I found a solution after woke up at 2 am thinking about this. See below for the current rules for ramming:

Ramming: Ram can only be done in Close distance. Driver / pilot makes MNV roll vs. target DEF. If successful, both roll their ram damage according to their scale. With the attacking vehicle getting a +1 damage.

Scale
Ram Damage
Personal
1d6
Vehicle
2d6
Starship
3d6
Space Station
4d6

Note: A character cannot ram a vehicle and won't do any damage. This is also true when you're riding a bicycle, or even motorcycle. Most big creature are the scale of Personal (Chobos, Bizzarian, etc) and Vehicle (Rhino, Elephant, etc)

p/s: I can't find ramming gif online. My Goggle fu is not stronk enough.
