with this change i thought i was the fastest (excluding Hovers with reapers), but still there are some wheeled builds that i can’t close the distance.
I ditched Apollo, for the lightest gen out there, i reworked the frames to a bare minimum, one good shot and the all thing will go kabum, i gave up a drone and three pieces of “armour”. i switched the cab, and the co-driver
I don’t know what else can i take off
I can’t mount boosters.
I’m not looking for top speed only but also acceleration
Get rid of two of your ST wheels, and make sure you have two non-ST wheels in the mix to keep your tonnage up. With a cabin and engine that reach 120, Falcon is often your best choice, or the one that reduces movement part power drain (forgot which one that is).
Also, Bigfoots are the slowest accelerating wheel. Hermits or buggy wheels give you a lot more acceleration.
I normally tried to get away with st, non-st, st with those but It left a lot to be desired when it came to acceleration. You can upgrade them which brings them down to -17 drain but the improvement isn’t that much. I have a set of the large wheels upgrade like that and I still find them slow.
I would still recommend moving to more efficient wheels.
one of my radiance builds is an aggressor cabin 4 buggy st wheels and 2 buggy non st wheels and a cheetah engine , it will hit 100 before it gets to the ramp coming out of the garage … of all the wheels ive tried buggy feel the fastest
With the exception of the omni’s and hovers most of the wheels are pretty straight forward in energy power consumption to acceleration. The others are a little more power hungery for their listed values.
I can’t change the wheels i’m tied up to Bfs + cheetah ( drones) without the two the freaking things will take forever to spawn , time i don’t have 99% of the time.
and only the drones are in the “upper deck” .
But i did this
In PVP i use Grizzly because of durability and mass limit, i unlocked Yuri because of tonnage ( more acceleration), i totally forgot about movement parts penalty.
I will see that tomorrow
I already shrunk the build by 8 pins, handling it’s fine, that chunk that i lost was because the gen was hit. There isn’t almost any frame to get hit, it’s an I with 1x8 and 1x6 frames. But if one of them get hit i lose the entire back or the entire front.
The only difference for a skeleton racing build from the good old days it’s the modules, even the “armour”, i saw much heavier racing builds back in the day.
Let’s see how my luck turns out tomorrow ( i only did 1 run with 4 wheels) and yes, the car seems a bit more naked without those two addicional Bfs.
I like buggy wheels, i have buggy wheels i also have studded wheels, I used them a lot for racing back in the day, there isn’t anything faster than studded wheels going out of the gate.
I have resources to unlock one more co-driver after that i have to grind for it, i didn’t decided which one but Hertz could be one of them.
Billie and Jay i know i will not unlock them for now.
