    i used feisar for both, actually for most of them. but the extra maneuverability it gives you will be great for the 2 tracks, but you must be a crack shot with your weapons to compensate for your slower speed

    Just takes practise. I left doing the Elite arcade for a while after I was useless at CP, Sol2 and *gasp* SC, but I came back after a week or 2 and found them all relatively easy. Oddly I did none of them in my beloved AG-S ship. I had more luck with Feisar / Goteki 45.

    Personnaly, I used Harimau for these 2 tracks, for me it was the good ship with good handling (I found it a little bit "lighter" than assegai,but maybe I just play too much with it) & speed.

    The only thing when you have average skills like me is that the AI make you going nuts: on one try you can finish 2nd or 3rd with an average time (2'12 or around), and on the next you can finish 8th with a not so bad time and the 1st place AI is close to beat the world record. you need a strong willpower to prevent you throwing the gamepad on the walls.
    I use SL sessions to train, made a few days pause and try again, and it works better.
    Be sure to take all the weapon pad you can when you are first on the last lap, because you can be sure that the 2nd or 3rd AI is just behind you, waiting for a speed boost (and they surely have it if you let them go on a pad)and beat you on the last straight

    I think i used Harimau for these two tracks, I was also using Icarus but kept getting pasted.

    On Sebenco, personally I would use the Turbo at the top of the hill going into the tunnel as using it coming out of the tunnel takes good timing which at the time i didn't have. You need to master side shift to get round the track smoothly try not to to take the corners too wide.

    On Chengou, Take the hard left, wide and earlier than you think. Also time can be lost on the long sweeping left. Try to keep your nose down right round this part as it will stop you jumping about too much (still learning this myself).

    Yeah, it's (lots of) practice (sideshifting) and maybe some luck. Get some AP or Turbo and you will make it - use it at the right point. But only if you know the track and imho take the right ship (I preferred AG, Feisar for S/C and C/P). The biggest pain was S/C forward ... I flew record after record but never managed it better than 2nd. After 2 nights and dreams about improving my skills I finally made it. For elite pilot I had to do it again *sigh* this time practice hit me. I made it in my 3rd attempt w/o much luck regarding the extras. Same was for all the other back tracks that I mostly never practiced. Not that much of a problem. Got elite pilot after three nights of ~2 h racing. W/ only 4 trophies missing I have to go for the zone an zico (I'm not that good w/ barrel rols) events.

    I don't think that a thing such as 'the right ship' exists. I used Icaras on all tracks and got elite campaign. I think it was great practice, but the thing with elite AI is that there are times when they are ELITE and times when they are elite. That and getting lots of speed boosts on SC and it is quite easy.

    Only when you play against real people online do you understand that the AI is not the real threat

    Ok, than it's even more practice. I did not get the 90deg turns or the long left turn in S/C managed w/ Icaras. After all, luck is when the AI is elite != ELITE . More Online races is the next thing if zone sucks big time. Need to do some more eliminations.

    I'm not sure for the trophy mates, but without weapons the elite ai is not that strong.
