I am new to wipeout, i have just unlocked the silver ships.
I notice most players on here are against using pilot assist.
I like to play with it off but would personally use it online in races where possible.

Can someone explain what are the +/- of using/not using pilot assist.

The way I see it is online racing you gotta have it to help against ramming from other players.

In time trails it really seams to make no difference to my times as you really need perfect laps anyway.

Can someone put me straight on this please
