    So true, :beer: :beer: :beer:

    Thing is the boost do affect forward and reverse thrust as it does to strafe too that's why you can use boost to enhance your acceleration and stopping power/distance and combine it with reverse strafe and in a fast ship you almost black out stopping that fast. But the combo of thrusters/strafing together with right timed boost and afterburner is very effective when used right.

    To get max effect out of this, you should have set in option first screen scroll down by default it is set like that to use automatic use boost when breaking which mean you don't have to activate boost when using break and turn of G-safe when boosting then you have nothing limit the ships power. Only thing stopping is the risk of Red/black out and if you can hold it on the edge you can do some insane maneuvers.

    I usually show my practice lap in Murray Cup around Old Vanderval as a example of when you get the combo right and stay on the edge of red/black out and how I use roll to get out of a red/black out, done right as I said you can bust the limit so much it start to get scary. LOL

    Yeah I know this is from 2.6 AC Murray Cup, but it stil works the same so the technique is the same. :smile:

    Yup. Me too. So I bought one. It is fantastic. There's one problem though, doesn't have anything to do with the Eclipse really. Maiden flight, I get interdicted. Pirate says I should bugger off (sooo... why did he interdict me if he didn't want company?), I turned to face him. Blew him out of the sky before he even got a shot off... and Goddamit I got a crime stat for it. Geez, CIG!

    I'd take the crimestat for blowing his conflicting behaviour to pieces anyday!

    Wow Mitch, that was one crazy laptime and thanks for the tip on aerobatics! Very useful.

    I haven't been able to lock up a target with the thing, it's like I got no torpedoes at all. If it's just me, this ship is going to be as useful as man-nipples to me

    You're welcome, hope it can give some idea's :smile:
    But best tip I can give is ( the obvious ha ha..) push to the limit and over the edge so you crash, then you know where the edge end.

    Going to need a 890 jump stencil so I can proudly show how many captains are crying.
