    I used to use qirex as the second skin (the purple one with a lighter purple then white circle on the front bits)on vanilla hd as it looked top but changed to mirage with fury as I seem to be the only person who thinks the new skin looks cool

    I tend to use AG-Systems, because I liked the Belmondo connection and the handling suited my style of play in WipEout 3+SE, but I also use Icaras and EG-R / EG-X.

    Icaras because of the sheer speed in W3 and because I took some care over the back story for Icaras for WipEout Pulse when it came to bringing them back.

    EG-R because I thought it was the best looking ship in Fusion and again in Pulse/HD, because the idea to merge EG-R and Xios was mine and I felt some responsibility to actually use the ship! Plus I sat by Egg when he was working on the EG-X ship and pestered him a lot to make it look "more like the Fusion one", so I owe it to him to play with it.

    I never use Piranha, Harimau, or Mirage, although I should use Mirage because the team name was my idea, when Colin had originally chosen Mantis. I needed a team to go with the MAGEC back story I'd created and wanted to move the team to fit with that. Colin was too swamped with track design at the time to, quite rightly, shout me down and so Mantis became Mirage and moved from Mexico to the UAE.

    At the time I felt that there were too many teams "over that way" (Auricom, Piranha, Mantis) and none in Saudi Arabia region. I feel bad about that one, because the ship had already been designed and the colours already chosen to fit with Mantis, so I probably shouldn't have meddled there. Now I can't use the ship because I feel guilty!

    I just liked AG systems. My second choice, which is Assegai just looked like some sort of Space Cruiser, Like a military class Ship.

    AG SYS just looks sweet too, handles like a dream.

    Holy Macaroni were you an employee at Studio Liverpool!!?? My respect for you just multiplied 1000 fold, your place as head administrator has been earned every ounce lol.

    On another note you should try Piranha or Harimau sometime, each are the kings of speed an Maneuverability respectively. (Fesiar a shade better at turning tho)

    I'm alternating between Feisar, Harimau and Auricom.

    Feisar because i've been a long time pilot, since wipE'ouT'' in fact. I did because i believe that perfect control can make you the fastest on the track.

    Then i went on Harimau, just to make some change. I like Harimau's design, it felt perfectly balanced, and i must admit i like the improved top speed and the fact that it almost handles like Feisar.

    Finally i've been with Auricom because i wanted to try one of the heavy-weight ships, and i find this one being the best, technically. Even more with the Fury version, i got 90 pts of top speed and shields and 70 pts of handling Thrust only improved of .5 pts, but the rest of the specs are perfect for me. I also picked Auricom out of patriotism (its been made by a consortium of US and Canada teams) and because nobody really used it in HD

    PS - on the Auricom bit. I never use the red skin out of respect for one of my friends. It sounds dumb - but I feel he "earned" that color (considering he got so damn good with the Auricom) - so I fly with the default or 3rd skin almost exclusively.

    I always fly the HD Auricom - and I don't win much anymore, but it's nice to "keep pace" with all the Fur-roid'd ships using the "old one". Retarded, I know, but I feel greater pressure / increased challenge this way.

    And he created the WZ befOre he ever worked at SL. He was also the admin of the official Fusion site while working at SL, but the WZ is his own, created and financed by him.

    I use Assegai or AG-S for the tight tracks with sharp turns, Icarus for the longer easier tracks. If I'm playing a mode like Zone where all ships are equal I choose a totally different team just to mix things up.

    Assegai since WO3SE (obviously not including Fusion). I like high handling decent speed and see the weaker shields as a challenge. Plus there a large degree of team loyalty for me since I used it so much playing 3SE...you can bet I wasn't a happy boy when Fusion came along.

    Also of course, we are the pretty boy team of the anti grave racing league, and by that I mean the ship lol.
