    The hardest thing about racing with weapons is getting them before the other racers.
    A real pain if your running a close second,first place gets the weapons,you run over an inactive pad, and it reactivates for the racer coming third so they get the pick up.
    Being the meat in an AG sandwich has caused my demise on the race track far to often.

    ^ I agree, but normally this should only happen with opponents of your exact
    level, normally the leader would be a bit faster (so you can pick up a weapon
    at some time), or a bit slower (then you can overtake him normally) ...
    if the level is the same then maybe it's wise to slow down a bit, to get all
    those weapons (turbo, missile, quake)!

    AG-wolf, hi there. i can also give you some advices. 1st of all. Metropia reverse is not a good track to start phantom. those blind turns can be really hard. one thing you should start doing is. pitch. on this track is very important to not go so high on the section that is before the wierd loop. even if you pitch down, you can do a barrel roll. the other thing is Side Shift. this is SO usefull. try it and find a way to use it in a helpful way. don't oversteer. be more smooth. but you are in the good way see you soon on the tracks

    AG, I'm in the same boat as you. I have time to play HD only on weekends, and by the time I do get to play I need to get accustomed to Phantom speed all over again. 5 days of no HD action is having it's effects on my skills, so I'm just like you (In a way): Can do weel on Rapier, but trying to fly with the big guys is kinda out of my league

    Don't be hard on yourself AG-Wolf, to be honest with you your racing is a lot better then most pilots'. I can't really give any advice without copying what other's have said. Just go over and over each track in SL. I will however emphasize the points which have been made about Side Shift. I noticed that you never used it. On the blind turn and the turn just after (leading to the hill with a weapon and boost pad on) I use side shift and it saves just that little bit more time. Side Shift is also great for getting off a wall quickly when grinding.

    Overall i'd say start using Side Shift to free yourself from a wall (this will most likely be during nasty turns) and with practice and time, you will naturally start to side shift before hitting the wall instead of afterwards, therefore increasing the quality of your lines, turns and cutting down you race times

    (phew, hope my long reply hasn't killed anyone of boredom)

    Phantom is a completely different race from the others - slightly different techniques apply - i.e. for steering and braking you are simply touching the pad for a split second at the right time in most of cases.

    Also - I find Icarus great in other classes of race but it's annoying in Phantom so I use Mirage. Different teams may make a difference.

    If I don't warm up before hand on a campaign phantom race I'm useless if I go in straight away on a tournament 'cold'. I need to get into the 'zone' and get used to the speed which only takes about 5 minutes.
