    Definitely agree with dumping Flash. Actually I dont think the speedclasses is something that needs to be changed (from the previous games).

    Vector
    Venom
    Rapier
    Phantom

    ..is all that is needed. But I sure like the Zen name, so maybe put one more above phantom just because of the name. Otherwise, just having it in zonemode works.

    The important thing is to have a big step between the classes, like someone already said. When you change class it should feel almost uncontrollable at first.

    But it would be impossible to have a quick play on the bus, for example.. As for phantom class in pulse, I sometimes noticed that some tracks doesn't looks like something built with that speed in mind.. Outpost 7 seem not to be created with phantom class-speed in mind, maybe just kandang and asayyeah are able to going trough it easily that fast..
    anyway, phantom is enough, imho, and I don't dislike "flash" name too much.

    Hahaha or have you thought about it in terms of relativity , relative to how fast you're going maybe you're going so fast everything in the world around you feels slowmo , or after playing in zen mode for too long things in the real world feel uber slow and thus gives you a feeling of relaxation..ala zen

    probably was there before i mentioned it but really, i didnt knew of it since i have been away from the forums from a long time ago, nice coincidence.

    *edit: just found out pulse already has a zen stage in zone mode... ... man i am officially a wipeout newbie.

    Control in phantom is the price that we have when we make perfect laps, a reward for that perfect laps, should be a Zen class, more faster, for those that think phantom is slow.

    Go ahead, i should try to achieve that reward.

    Well, my idea would be this, design the game with phantom, rapier, flash/venom vector/venom whatever, test it, make sure it's bug free, and once you're done with all that, tack 'Zen' on the end, make it a good deal faster than phantom. Not as a proper part of the game, but as a gift to us, make it hard to unlock, we'll love you for it SL.

    ... yeah, and I'm sure QA and localisation would love us for it, too. 'Cos they just adore last-minute features

    *Idea* when you get a perfect lap in zen, the hud message thingy should say "Holy S***! how good ARE you?" or a message from the programmer I think it would be good for the SL team to be able to stick in an easter egg or two...
