    It's not that some of the best players lack practise on the Fury tracks. And I
    honestly don't play these tracks more than any other top10 player here. And as
    Vartazian said, some players know the Fury tracks quite well.

    Hey Connavar, we played together one time. I choose any track while hosting.
    About FEISAR and AG-SYS. There isn't much of a difference, but still, the thrust
    advantage of AG-SYS against FEISAR matters, esp. in a race.

    harimau HD is my actual No.1! off topic: its cockpit looks like the "y-wing"-cockpit from the original STAR WARS movies. 2nd place 4 me goes to feisar HD, cause it looks like the original BATTLESTAR GALACTICA starfighter. yesterday i watched BLADERUNNER (again), it seems to me the flying police-car influenced the design of mirage HD. btt: i dont think harimau HD is the weakest ship. in the beginning of my wipEout HD "career" 4 me it was the 1 & only choice to beat the elite-AI on phantom class.

    definitely must try fury icaras for that track !
    Hey I got my first non-ZONE rank 1 on TJ Reverse, Phantom, TT : 1.52.89
    using Harimau+.

    I took a week off from trying to set any new records to rethink the way of
    how I'm controlling the craft on phantom-racing. Problem is, I'm rather used
    to control the ZONE craft in a very dynamic fashion because everything is
    ever changing in ZONE, whereas on phantom-racing everything is static. On
    phantom-racing there is no need to stabilize the craft for example. A fixed input
    sequence is enough, the same steering pattern will be applyed on each lap.
    I just needed to find a way on how I could incorperate this into my way of
    steering. After some experimentation it seems like that I've found what I
    was looking for. I somehow started anew, like someone who had never played
    any WipEout before, to tricker my mind in adopting something new -- which
    isn't easy to say at least. Well, today I decided to give it a go on a track
    I really know about; Talon's Junction Reverse. After an hour I was quite
    pleased having set the new TT record over there, and this run wasn't even a
    good one from my side, I missed a lot of pads. So the record is quite beatable
    esp. when performing BRs before start/finish, like you did on SL, leungbok.
    However, I'm getting better on BRs as well.

    Lets see if I can now pull a 21.6x on TJ (R).

    ProblemSolver: I know you could choose the track of course, but we did only
    1 race lol!! It's just that I was curious to see how good you were, without being
    10 seconds behind

    I personally use the craft all the time (Fury Version). It's light and can speed up fairly quickly. The HD version isn't as terrible in my opinion. Try the craft first, don't base on stats.

    I kinda like Harimau, really. They are my 3rd favorite team. Even thought I got eliminated twice with them. But I got careless both those times. The stats suggests that they have the second weakest shielding in the game. But stats isn't everything.

    Dittos. Harimau is the BEST for Phantom, and probably Rapier too. It is all about how you race, but I contend that Harimau is the BEST in the hands of a master pilot. Everyone flies Icaras, but few master it. The true benefits of the Harimau lie with a skilled pilot. You can't go off stats alone, but if you did I'd argue that with the second best speed below Icaras and Piranha and waaay better handling, it excels. Icaras is the best in my opinion for Venom Flash, and possibly Rapier.

    It really depends on the speed class. That extra handling is significant in Phantom class. Thrust is irrelevant, and top speed really only matters on straights. FEISAR is too slow, Icaras handles too poorly.
