View Full Version : pitch control

OK, I hear it rumbles if pitch control is incorrect and your ship bottoms out ( I have original controller), BUT does it actually slow the ship down if the pitch is wrong. It doesn't seem to to me, but maybe someone can test this on the sebenco tunnel with the turn to see what the speed does when not bottoming out vs bottoming out. I just don't have the time to do this.

I only ever hear or feel when i'm off pitch in phantom class races, I notice it most on Sebenco Reverse.

I think it slows you down a tad but i'm not totally sure.

I've never felt the rumbling unless I'm being hit by something. If you nose down into that tunnel your nose will smash into the track and it costs you speed as far as I can tell. I think its like the right side of my Assegai that scrapes the track bottom if I nose down.

what I was recommending is that someone use the XL hud, and observe the speed when you enter, as opposed to after bottoming out/ not bottoming out, and see the difference. It really doesn't seem to slow you down much at all
