    At first (first couple of months) it drove me insane - but I *think* I've since gotten used to it / accustomed to dealing - but once this update comes out - we'll know for sure.

    Surefire way to see if they're using pilot assist - the ships zig-zag left to right insanely fast on the Anulpha Pass upper deck. That's pilot assist doing it's "thing".

    Also - when you quake, or missile/rocket someone right next to the edge of the track, or on a corner - they just about never fall from the track. (unlike people without PA on - they almost always fall)

    Surely its not a major problem anyway as people with pilot assist on can only go at 90% speed anyway ??

    I am doing this without pilot assist
    Well, I can't claim to be an excellent racer.

    Anyways, this function is a very good thing. I can't stand racing with people who use PA. It feels like a cheap way of racing to me. I can understand that someone would like to use that in the beginning, but as soon as the skill get's higher, controlling your ship properly should be a part of the learning process.

    I really cant see what advantage PA would give you at phantom(Maybe any class) speed? Surley you would be miles of the pace after the first three corners on any track because of your racing line, never mind it being capped at 90% top speed!

    It's not so much an advantage to the user but a hindrance to others. The constant zig-zagging and the fact that they can slam you into a wall with no ill-effects to them is a real bastard when you're stuck behind them. Many a time I've ended up screwing up a race through being stuck behind a PA user constantly ramming me into the wall or off the track.

    LOL! Me too. Last night I was playing and there were three of us that hit the bridge at the same time and we banged around a bit and I started fishtailing back and forth and I thought "I bet they think I've got PA on." Of course I ended up jumping off way before the end trying to hit the weapons/boost pad on the lower level but still.......
