Ah… in that case, the Cockpit is it.
I’ve actually been toying with this for a while - without boosters, though. I’ve wanted the best rig for getting around the Adventure as fast as possible for the side mission challenge. I also like taking these into PVP for a little fun.
Some take aways from what I’m thinking & finding…
I actually use the Aggressor since I hate burning energy on boosters.
All 1X lightweight frames & the minimal at that to make the build wide & long for stability (fast cars flip).
Gun Mount Wheels are great… they sit a little higher, so you’ll clear more obstacles. They’re light, and feature bullet resistance. -8 & 15% power, though.
Lunar Wheels are similar, but sit lower & have a lower power penalty.
Buggy Wheels… 5 & 10% power loss & a speed requirement perk.
Low Clearance wheels… only 2 & 4% power loss!
Chameleons since you won’t be heavy enough to fight. Run away, turn a corner & disappear.
Cheetah. No other engine matters.
Radio… you’ll be away from the team since you’re so fast. Let 'em know what’s up.
Doppler - maybe fused for distance detection. You don’t wanna round the corner into a harvester build.
I don’t have it, but the Thor is going under my build ASAP.
To each their own, but…
Kapkan & King are perfect. Your enemies will be chasing you. Make 'em regret it.
Copter drones… they do damage & draw fire, but give away where you are.
Turrets are good in theory, but enemies just ram 'em & they’re done.
Vultures… hear me out… are great. Mount 'em forward on the build so they don’t get shot while you’re running. Fire them FORWARD of where you’re going, let 'em land & get cloaked, then drive under 'em. The guy chasing you can’t shoot 'em & gets nailed.
Jubokko… because duh.
Pay attention to the parts with bullet resistance… elbows, bumpers etc. You know the drill.
One thing I sometimes try is to make the build rather V-shaped with the narrow part in the front. I’ve even made builds with the front steering wheels in tandem - one in front of the other to accomplish a very pointy build. The LAST thing you want is to be hung up on an enemy build. Building a V makes it possible to bounce off enemies. Those Birds of Prey bumpers are perfect dead center up front. They’re heavy, but sturdy & do a lot of damage.
When you get something built, be sure to share it. I love this kind of non-meta building.
