    I kind of disagree with that lol, Icaras is OP and everyone knows it
    That doesn't mean you'll fly good with it, it still depends on the pilot, but i break most my Harimau records with Icaras rather easily (alt account), but i just don't like seeing everyone hopping in an Ica assuming they'll do much better, i love seeing variation in the lobbies, instead of all Icas, but that's not the reason why i fly Harimau, simply put, Harimau is ****ing sexxxyyyyyy :-D, i simply fly what i enjoy flying, and usually that's based on design of the ship

    Harimau-HD is under-powered for sure, it has the same stats as Assegai-HD but with less thrust. But Harimau-Fury is either the no. 2 or no.1 best ship in the game, (and one of the most used) i don't think anyone can really argue against that. If you want under-powered craft look at ships with high shields, triakis, auricom, qirex... they are just out classed.

    But if you want my opinion, i think EG-X is the actual worst (especially if you compare it's fury to the other furys), it has NO stats. Don't believe me? compare it to Goteki 45, Assegai, and AG-systems. They just have better stats than it. EG-X's only saving grace is its 85-90 speed-thrust combo that just barely keeps it from being completely pointless.

    There's a lot of hidden stats as well though, look at icaras's booty shake for example

    I really like Harimau HD as well (also because it's super sexy) it flies real smooth ^^
    There's a very old thread on here somewhere where one of the devs listed most of the hidden stats, but i can't remember them from the top of my hat

    Well it is OP and yet it isn't. It is a risk vs reward craft. Icaras is almost perfectly optimized for frequent barrel rollers (like myself!) but how one deals with the low shield strength is really where the extra skill is needed. For speed laps and TT's, yes; Icaras is a bit OP. But that is different that a race setting.

    You are correct Cipher when you say that people assume that they'll fly better with Icaras. I like to think that I've mastered the Icaras personally, and when I see a bunch of Icaras ships in a lobby, I know that a lot of pilots are just using it because of the handling stats and the speed stats without truly knowing the full potential. The HD version rolls slightly faster and is easier to get certain rolls than the Fury counterpart. It also is a stiffer ride making ideal lines a little easier which is the hidden stats for the Icaras. The same is true for Piranha. The HD rolls much faster, and gets more air because it is lighter.

    But DAMN if the Harimau Fury isn't the sexiest ship to fly. No question there. The only other ship that I personally find almost as sexy is the HD Piranha.

    Once again, it is really the pilot skill that is the most important aspect of it. I have no need for weapons, and I absorb everything to roll instead. Which is in my opinion, the way to master the Icaras. It seems like the perfect Green Racing ship. I either win or get destroyered in Flash and Venom.

    Well, i went and did a comparison of the visible stats. I compared the lowest ships in each stat to the highest in each stat. should i post my findings here or is that too off topic?

    Ah. So these are the hidden stats then. it's unfortunate that we may never know the exact specs on all the race craft though.

    In a wep off race though, the best ship is imo ag fury due to its thrust.
    Since overtaking is a complex thing against good players, you have the best options to win a race when u r in front. With ag fury you keep your start position or you can even overtake some icaras and hatimau.

    Edit: The sexiest ship is icaras hd silver skin close view <33
    And the best roller is auricom - i take him in red colour sometimes, when i dont feel pressure because of other player.
    It is a really tough ship.
