    jeeze, some people don't even USE side-shifts? They're about the only thing that keep me away from the wall half the time... I would be dead without them in HD :/

    That being said, I used R1/L1 because I didn't want to wear out my R2/L2 triggers... but I don't even use a PS3 controller anymore; I use a PS1 Dualshock so that every button is digital, regardless of what the options menu says...

    The D-Pad on a PS2/PS3 controller has too much play, so doing BRs is difficult unless I'm using the PS1 pad

    @Reach: How and when did you decide to put your controls like that?
    It makes sense but it's still a bit of a weird setup...

    I will try it tomorrow

    Awesome! Same set-up i used for pulse nearly. Might have to give it a try
    I used for pulse -
    L - fire
    R - thrust
    Sqare - L Airbrake
    Triangle - R Airbrake
    X - Absorb
    O - Look back

    Never really experimented properly with a similar set-up on HD, i guess seeing as the ps3 obviously has more shoulder buttons i felt obliged to make full use of them.

    @Saturn
    Wow, Im truely amazed you dont use sideshifts very often. So many corners can be completely negated with a humble shift. Thinking about it, on VK Rev i shift on pretty much every corner.

    I do them more than I realise. It's not like I don't use them. I'm trying out the old WO games and it's obvious I use them subconsciously when they're not available and I'm trying to do them anyway. But I've just never really been good at them and rarely got the desired result. After a lot of TT on a track I get the hang of them a bit more, but I'm sure others use them a lot more and are way better at them than I. I tend to always do them and then steer too much at the same time. I'd prefer to not use them at all and slide the ship around more in a bit of an old-skool way, even though I'm not an old-skool player.

    Last night I set airbrakes to 100%. It was horrible. Then I was going to start to turn them down a bit at a time, figuring I'd probably stop at around 30% anyway. But I think they're on 80% now. I might not even have gone down past 90%. It does feel to offer more subtlety in the control, particularly for SS, than the lower settings, even though I'm using L1/R1. So maybe now I can start using SS better. I wish I'd experimented more earlier now.

    Deary me Sat, you just can't get anything right can you?

    From your vids it looks like you SS quite a lot, just as much as (if not more than) me, if that's anything to go by. Only difference is that you use them in different places/situations.

    I agree with you about not using them at all though, feels much more smooth and controlled if you don't SS around a corner. Actually it's more like holding the brake as opposed to tapping it. One example I can think of is the second long lefty on sol2 R: feels really nice to just hold l-airbrake with a bit of nose down but I'm pretty sure it's slower than the whole tap-tap-sideshift-tappy thing.

    Defs gonna try Reach's funky setup tonight

    30% = win
