    I wouldn't say bad, but it is possible to do the O7 turns even with a Piranha, so it's just practice. If you keep on practising with Goteki or Triakis, you'll nail these turns eventually They can all do it, just not exactly the same way.

    For one moment I thought I had double posted :O
    Woow, another one from Montreal, and in G45 no less!
    I think that's three people from Mtl registered here, we've got to get something going someday

    don't know if i've explain myself well
    I'm the same - I was using Assegai all the time time at first, but I've gone off it because it feels a bit too lightweight, it flicks around too much. In online games I've been using Qirex more and more these days as it's got a meatier feel to it, also in the inevitable first-lap scrum it can hold it's own against everything except Triakis, plus it looks v.cool in the second skin.

    eg-x is a strange beast, i swear sometimes i feel it more heavy and whimy than piranha or triakis
    don't know if it's just me...

    I made this after I got the game: Analysis of teams.
    If we imagine that the teams are put together by spending points on the 4 traits (Thrust, Handling, Shields and Speed), it seems that the first three are all worth the same amount, while Speed costs more (and from playing around it looks like a cost 1.66 times more is the sweet spot).

    This shows is how many points each team is worth under various conditions. The main columns being Speed-Weighted Total (which is the total point cost of the team assuming speed costs more), Speed Weighted No Shields (which disregards shield costs - applicable for Time Trial or Speed Lap) and Joint Band, which is a sort of average of those two. I've left the main table sorted by Speed Weighted No Shields, which is the category I'd use to judge by. Not entirely accurate to do so, of course; shields should probably be treated as a threshold value: based on whether you've got enough shields to finish the race or not, but I think that is too fuzzy to base stats off; I'm sticking to the numbers here I don't have enough experience racing online to see whether Icaras would dominate (my hunch was that it would, but from comments here it doesn't seem to yet.)

    Anyway, have a look and make your own conclusions, but personally I think Assegai is definitely a very strong team. Not sure that that's why so many people pick it - I think it's more likely that new players choose it since it's stats look the best in the starting lineup (it basically looks like a fast version of AG-Systems). I picked Assegai because the ship look the coolest :/

    So by these calculations Goteki is a poor team?
    I'm sorry, but I and those that have been behind me during races can beg to differ

    Personally, I don't think stats mean anything here. It's all down to each pilot's way of flying, personal preference. And that's really the way it should be - a perfect balance. I don't know yet if SL really pulled it off with HD (and I don't think Feisar can really be competitive in TT, but I might be wrong here), but it seems pretty damn close. Keeps the records from being dominated by one ship, and also gives everyone the chance to be flying their personal favorite ship and still be competitive.

    Yes I also agree the balance is really well done, I have yet to find a ship that is blatantly overpowered or underpowered in both Pulse and HD.
