    Why limit this to only HD? Why not make a Wipeout Habits thread in the pilot's lounge instead?

    Good shout chill.

    I have a couple of weird ones that I just realised I do/have:

    I usually crack the knuckle of my ring finger on my right hand when heading down the Psychedelic Stairway on Syncopia

    I swirl the Analog stick around in circles during the 3-2-1-GO sequence.

    I always always always sideshift left when crossing the finishing line at the end of a race or time trial.

    If I miss a Barrel Roll I shift my seating position a little.

    I'm sure there's more I've yet to discover

    I used to have people in stiches when they watched me play HD when it first came out, all the tracks were new too me, so it was a steep learning curve.
    I'm just glad none of my action were video'd I would of been a Youtube favorite.
    I was so animated, I could be seen holding the controller 1ft over my head or to either side, depending on the track.
    Far more reserved now I know the tracks, although the St Vitus dance of Wipeout control did make a brief return when Fury came out.

    Though I don't do it anymore (unless really curious), I've noticed on videos online that many people still look back just before crossing the finish line, which might result in a freeze due to that bug.

    I push the L3 and R3 buttons when the race is loading.

    Can't think of more.

    lol jasmin!

    personally i can't think of anything strange except that for some reason instead of avoiding mines and and bombs i head straight on them!
    oh and sometimes when i try to perform a difficult(for me) BR, i bite my lips in anticipation of failing!

    I find I hold my breath going through slow corners, not as bad as in road racing games where I hold my breath while changing gear..

    Just imagine it in 3D (drools+wants)

    Boy, I got a lot of strange ones, like rubbing vaseline (just a light touch) onto my left thumb, to make getting my Barrel Rolls out, easier

    Don't get me started...
