    My airbrakes are R2/L2 because I've been doing it that way for 13 years. And Fire/Absorb is circle/square.

    The first turn i learned to use it effectively is the last of sol 2 forward, maybe you should practise it there too?

    i use it pretty much as often as the game allows you to (given the small delay between shifts).

    Might I add that ProblemSolver has actually cracked 150 zones

    Edit: It can also be mighty useful for catching air with which to Barrel Roll

    Same as connavar. I use it over 50 times a race. At least. EVERY corner.

    Wow! i knew he was the Zone King but damn!

    Also i try to always use it when going into a chicane (if theres no
    straight line gap) so i dont worry about going let then right, i line
    my ship up with the exit then side-shift as soon as i can, but it can
    all go BADLY worng even by one cannon hit or the tinyest scrape from
    someone.
    so only do it if theres a gap between you and the other guys
    like when im doing my average +4 sec infront of guys like yeldar

    is that a challenge? cheeky monkey!

    back on topic: I can only think of one corner where I don't use it... I'll try to think of summore but I don't think I'll be very successful

    Glad you wanna master the side-shift technique! That'll be one less guy using me to pass the hairpin on Chenghou and throwing me out of the track, busting my race

    Take note that S-S can also be used to avoid drop weapon hazards at the last minute... Usually after a while, you can see them from afar, but during the proper momentum, it can save your butt in a split-second.

    Wanna know a good training ground for side-shifting? Sebenco Climb. Have fun!

    I use 6 sideshifts in the first 8 Seconds of Modesto Heights Alone.
