    Default New Mirage lover ^^

    Seriously, i dunno what the **** happened, but since i took place in this little bubble ship of joy, my performances went massive. Jeez, it gave me the 6th position on Vineta K Reverse, Phantom Multiplayer!

    This ship is SO-COOL. Is it me or it feels its more prompt and easier to execute BRs? Anybody agrees? I dunno if its because the ship is so slender, it's compact and got no side wings, it feels like it just tunnels into the air stream like an arrow. Good top speed and thrust, handles like a charm, and plenty of shield energy - for the Fury version of course. The HD model is too weird for me... But Fury one fits like a glove. I feel the ship, and its behavior on the track is perfect to me.

    Now i understand why Dark_Phantom_89 and Coatlketzal are sold to it, and so am i

    Cool, join us! Lol glad to know you found a new love for Mirage. While I haven't been as faithful it is still my go to ship whenever I feel like I just can't put it together with another ship more specialized. Also to answer your question yes handling Mirage feels like a psychic bond and the shape is very cylindrical so it's like whatever space the ship can fit into it can also BR without clipping anything. The only thing lacking really is the handling which is still plenty to make any turn well and isn't to twitchy.

    To be honest I may go back to it, I've been trying to force myself to learn ships I have no aptitude for

    Also congrats on you record

    Hehe thanks Reaper

    What's also funny is that i never thought of flying this ship eagerly like now! Like i said, the HD model always looked gross to me... How the hell can you see in front of you with those huge-ass flaps?!? But fortunately they made the Fury version more sober, and still the design is much awesome and distinctive.

    You are so right about its shape. I don't feel claustrophobic on the track, among a full grid. Feels like i just need to find a gap and slip through it! This effect on me is building up my confidence and awaken my reaction senses even more. I need less to worry about anticipating collisions for instance, and keeping just the minimum attention to those.

    HD version is my ex, don't dis or she'll come for you like an angry cockroach

    Always nice to see people find 'their' ship. Unless they're OBH because he's about as faithful as Tiger

    *runs far and wide*

    Interesting choice of ship there Kyonshi. The bug ship is a good all rounder, but is one almighty ugly looking ship, especially the fury version. Its looks like someone who has been disfigured in a really bad car accident

    If it suits you the best Kyonshi, then stick with it mate

    I gotta say the ginger is right, the tiger is the best ship out there, ive been using it all the time now.

    It all depends about the pilot. Harimau ain't the best ship out there, even with 90 Top Speed and 90 Handling. Thrust and Shield are far from being the best and to master the potential of this ship, you have to be an expert pilot. That's why a lot of top dogs are using it, most famous being Yeldar. One the other hand, Rezatron is unbeatable with Feisar, and would be telling you that this is the best ship, and i would probably say the same. I've been using Feisar and Harimau for a long time and i can see the specific pros and cons of those ships. HD AG-Systems is far from being the best ship around. Much Top Speed is lacking, but the good Thrust/Handling combination reveals its true power, along with perfect behavior on the race track. This is a ship you can feel. Legions of players used it, and some of the best veterans still use it despite Fury ship versions overwhelming the grid. I remember Vartazian and TarotCardKiller being unstoppable with it, while they were in my team.

    Ahh, your words regarding Mirage are like music to my hears Kyonshi

    It's such an underrated ship and is much better than people give it credit for.

    Eureka - It's not ugly, it's unique

    It is unique.

    But Triakis is still the most awesome looking ship.
