Wow. It must be easy, because I never have noticed them. I think I still have a save in range. I might have to go look for them.

What? No Turbo Booster? Shouldn't take too long.

Too many turns with asteroids for the turbo booster to be useful.

Yeah, top speed is definitely not a big factor. I find that if I don't upgrade the steering it's a whole lot harder, and it just occurred to me to wonder if the ship has a boost extension or not. If it doesn't that could help a little.

I'm thinking less of the top speed, and more of that tremendous linear acceleration. Turn, boost, brake, repeat.

Right. Slide I guess is the proper term.
