    Okay guys... we know how we all hate cheating on the Fusion league boards so I want to know your opinions on this.

    On Florian Height 3 during a league race i managed to beat my own lap time by a whole second thanks mainly to a speed up power up and a penetrator superweapon (I got 35.02 seconds) . The thing is I used the penetrator weapon to on the first fan jump... which meant I zoomed over to the other side. skipping that big long bend (which shaved off a huge amount of time).

    There was no respawning as i managed to land on the other side just before the second jump unscathed (though I hit the wall at a crazy angle).

    I just want to know whether I should use this time or not. I sill have my original save so if you guys think it's a cheaters time, I can always reload the old save and discard this time.

    I really need an answer for this.

    Just tried to reload my previous save file and it keeps on showing the 35 second lap time! I don't like it one bit. What if it's a cheat time? I've totally ruined the chance of trying to beat it.

    Damned bug... first time a bug has pissed me off.

    This is a hard one to answer but i dont consiser it a cheat just good timing (and maybe a bit of luck). ive done similar things (in fact i just got a 35.14 time due to skillfull use of a turbo). besides it may be the shortcut they were hinting at on the official website.

    So should I put it up on the league boards? I don't want to be labelled a cheater.

    I would (i might put my time on there,) cos there was no respawn i dont think its a cheat (personally) but then you might wanna wait for some other opinions. in case ur wondering, my use of the turbo (penetrator) was on the last big jump which made me jump right up to the finish line. i doubt ud call that cheating so whay call yours cheating. its just skill really.

    I actually think that the use of the penetrator on that first jump really is the shortcut because I did it again and managed another 35 second time (though this time I over shot it and respawned before the second jump).

    Well seeing as you are gonna put the time up I might as well do so too.

    Oh bollocks. I only gone and done it already... although being totally honest it doesn't improve my position in the league anyway. Actually... I can always restart the game and do a lap time with the default settings.
