A vehicle gets damaged as a result of each battle, though it doesn't necessarily affect its ability to participate in new battles. In Phase 1:
  • PvP: a car can take part in a new PvP battle immediately after another PvP, PvE, or tournament;
  • PvE: a car needs to recover for at least 24 hours after any preceding PvE battle before it can take part in a new PvE.
A vehicle’s condition doesn’t affect its chances of winning in PvP (only the level does).
In Phase 2, the state of repair will influence one’s success in battle, and the whole 'health' parameter will become more nuanced, with a counter of health points.
