Before I post my design here I just want to say that this is geared completely towards top speed, I didn't take projectile velocity into account nor ease of breaking. It really is not for use in aerial combat, it just doesn't have the capacitance nor the cooling to cope. The builder says top speed of 475 km/h but I also do some tuning on top of this to help.

Pilot Name: OneSixOne
AC Name: Whitewash

Head: CR-H95EE (10+ Cooling)
Core: YC07-CRONUS (5+ Cooling, 5+ Weight)
Arms: CR-A88FG (5+ Cooling, 5+ Weight)
Legs: LH07-DINGO2 (5+weight, 5+ Max Leg Weight)
Booster: CR-B83TP (10+ weight)
Generator: G01-LOTUS (5+ Condensor Cap, 5+ En Output)
Radiator: ANANDA (10+ Cooling)
Inside: NONE
Extension: NONE
Back Unit R: WB31B-PEGASUS
Back Unit L: WB31B-PEGASUS

Arm Unit R Hanger: CR-WH79H3 (HANDGUN)
Arm Unit L Hanger: NONE

Try it! Increasing max leg weight also increases top speed I found after some tinkering, and 5+ on each of weight and max weight increases it the most I find. Also for the TP increasing weight is better than the max boost power in terms of final speed.

Because I use the DINGO2 instead of light weight model I pay a little bit in turning speed, but I think it makes up for it in armor and in energy drain, perhaps in cooling too.

Final Speed: 641 km/h

*oh yeah, and Crimson also has a topic which I've kinda covered up with this post, don't forget to check it too Wink
another gimmick ac, lol. Big grin
the tp and the pegasus are banned.

but since this is a gimik AC, no harm no foul

the pixie3 will almost never run out of ammo,
so, remove the hangared right hand H3 for a speed boost

the blade is OK, but if you want a good combo with the pixie3 try the roc4 (thanks ric)
I can understand the TP being banned, but why ban the PEGASUS? Generally speaking I think its quite pathetic and useless, it give a minor speed increase for a large amout of usage drain and heat produced. I tried using it on my heavy weight, I had a speed increase of ONE kilometer per hour!

And yes it does run out of ammo, I've been using it in battle royals in the versus mode for some fun =D

I would change for the ROC4 but it barely has enough energy output to keep moving at speed and recharge quick enough for the next boost, so the ROC4 would be a disadvantage I think. Maybe the HP could work though?

And yes, I do love my gimick AC's Shades
try substituting birdie2 for TP.
and banned parts in tourneys doesnt mean they're banned everywhere.

Until you start dropping parts and start going 600+ kph on an uncrackable heavy. Tongue

This isn't the thread for discussing why the Pegs were banned, but what the hey, I'll say it anyway. Pegs are banned because they encouraged the hit and run-away style of play. This refers to getting the AP lead at the start of the match through rushing, or just being in the lead, then just dropping stuff to get as light as possible and run for the rest of the five minutes (or however long tournament rounds last in your area). Pegs buff the effectiveness of this tactic to the extreme, because they increase top speed and acceleration. Try fighting against that tactic, it's definitely not fun.

Even if your consciously trying not to play cheap, the fact is once you start dropping parts (to access your hangered weapons, for example) Pegs will still buff your evasion. You'll still get the benefit of not being hittable by anything LR has to offer, generally speaking. But it's not the player's fault. It's the game's. So the next best thing to hacking the game and changing the stats of the parts is to just exclude certain ones from play. The goal is to keep the playing field fair, but still competitive.

Anyway, as you'll see <a href='' target='_blank'>here</a>, we allow Pegs on hovers and tanks, since while they do boost speed, they also have more risks.

On the flipside,

jonevangelist here brings up a good point. Just because we're following it doesn't mean you have to also (unless of course, you're participating in our tourney).

Staying on topic, gimmick ACs are fun. You should try flamethrowers sometime, lol. XD Flamethrower
the tp+pegs are kinda redundant. you already get insane accell and boosting speed from the tp.

try what jonevangelist said. also try other boosters like the vulture, b81, or gull.
