    I've gone back to the old Goteki45. It's a shame because I love the new models, it's just the handling is so awkward. Doesn't matter as I can still more than hold my own against others using the Fury craft

    I like the new feisar. i thinks its better cos i can get perfect laps on phantom noe.but that could just be down to luck and getting better at the game, all i can say is i havnt noticed anything bad with fury ships.

    In retrospect i think they are balanced with the hd ships as there are more stats to the ship than the 4 they show. SL wouldnt just make fury ships blatently better as its unfair to hd only players online.they must all be reasonbly equal.

    Heh, I'm torn between my beloved, trusted and known HD-5Y5 and the Furryimau.

    The Harimau is slightly faster in a straight line, but with the AG-SYS I know exactly how it turns, how much airbrake is needed to correct a line etc. Something I still haven't figured with the KTM colored tiger.

    Aww, who am I kidding... I'm waging I'm back in AG-SYS within a fortnight

    Vart, you can't use the new Feisar. It's mine. Understood?

    I really haven't noticed any difference, maybe I should compare it
    Anyway, I'm 2 single races away from elite campaign legend, and I got the whole Meltdown grid with new Icaras

    Icaras <3

    Edit: Got the trophy now , did the last two with Feisar (Fury).

    P.S. I hate Chenghou Project.

    Well, i dunno but, yesterday, i raced CoatlKetzal, which is a well known SOLID pilot, and we had both Feisar. Once i picked the HD Feisar and he had the Fury version. I can honestly say we were constantly on the back of each other, with only few inches of a gap between us most of the course, which was Talon's Junction.

    So yeah, there may be better stats on the Fury ships, but when you take 2 experienced players against each other, it doesn't have dramatical incidence between the 2 ship versions and the overall aspect of the race. If there is one, its so subtle that you cant really feel having an advantage over the HD model.

    I won more in my HD AG SYS today against great pilots like Redscar, Greenix and Yeldar, more then I did my Fury Feisar or AG SYS.
