    Does anyone else feel the same way I do about Mirage? It Just seems to oversteer at everything....

    Or maybe it's just my driving....

    I like Mirage, it's a pretty agile ship, actually. I am only bothered by how wide it is...

    Traditionally I have always used Qirex but, well don't think they are as good now. Been using a mixture of Qirex, Assegai, Icarus and AG Sys. basically I can't decide!

    I've always been an AG 5Y5 player myself, was chatting with El earlier and the accelleration over speed pads can also be quite an advantage, especially on high speed tracks.

    The thing i'm finding tough ( apart from getting mines when I need forward firing weapons ) though is the initial "rumble" after the first few weapon pads, if I can break away or stay near the front I can usually do well, but weapons fire and getting rammed seem to be a lot harder to recover from.

    Yeah I have noticed with the ships with lower shield that it is very easy to spend your time and items recharging your shield if you get mired in the pack from the start. Online I have noticed that if you get away you can stay away though.

    As bakkufu already said, AG-SYSTEM gets an INSANE boost on speed pads. I was observing that on Anulpha, on the narrow straight - with every speed pad he was getting a little further away from my Assegai! No chance to catch him!
    In terms of acceleration, AG-SYS is definitely the uber-ship so far (seeing as top speed doesn't really matter all that much... ), only downside is that it is quite flimsy. If you hit it hard, it stumbles A LOT. However, I was surprised to find that AG-SYS has shield stats 8/10!!! Isn't it supposed to be one of the lightest, if not THE lightest (save for Icaras) ship???

    it stumbles more than a lot lol, spent 7/8 races out of an online tournament mid table, trying to dodge between the sides of the track and weapons fire, it was only on Anulpha that I could confidently open the taps and move up the pack, but was a great feeling doing so, a feeling ive always had from flying 5Y5!

    Icaras is just fine online if you make it to the front ain't no one going to catch you. I think I was still catching mostly scrubs, but I won about 15+ races in a row with it last night on Rapier and phantom class.

    I hear some of you talk a lot about the thrust of AG-Systems, that it is the fastest! But what about the thrust from the Goteki45? Shouldn't the thrust from the G45 be better than AGs'?
