Default Can you ram off a table edge?

If someone went to ram my skimmer and my skimmer dodged out of the way, from what I understand the ramming vehicle must complete it's move as if it went flat out. If by completing that move it would fall off the edge of the board, would it be destroyed or would it stop at the table edge? It may sound a little obscure but this happened to me recently.

I would tentatively say no...

As far as we've always been concerned if anything even barely touches off the table it's in the vortex o' nothingness and the penalties apply. Since it's not a legal area to move on, I would say you stop right there.

This is personal opinion though, I don't recall any RAW on it atm.

Table Edges are Impassable Terrain, so the vehicle comes to a dead halt.

Aye. I would play it just as if you had rammed into the side of a building. You just stop.

The answer is neither, you stop at the skimmer. Skimmer dodge = Ram stops, you fail.

If you explode a vehicle, you have to keep going since you have to try to move your maximum allowable distance. But I would agree that hitting the Table Edge counts as hitting Impassable Terrain.

That makes total sense. Also in the rulebook somewhere it states the table edge is the end of the world. I would class the edge of the world as impassible terrain.

Yes as per what it states in the rulebook: a failed ram attempt at a skimmer that dodges out of the way causes the ramming vehicle to halt at the point where it came into contact with the skimmer.
