    It doesn't look as cool as the Phoenix either.
    If the two bikes were used on a hard track would they be evenly matched or would the phoenix still top it?
    This is research I can do myself but was wondering if anyone had already done it?

    I'm not sure, from what I've noticed all the banshee is 'better' at is back wheel bunny hops....It's easier, not sure if that makes it better though.

    It's obviously faster, but then its not as fast as the Scorpion so meh.

    Adding a new bike was a bad Idea I reckon, BMX was cool. but it wasn't trying to be anything it's not or compete with the big bikes.

    Quite an achievement, well done.

    I remember just getting silver on it, and I ain't going back for gold any time soon.

    Well done Nanocrystal :)

    I remember watching a 1 fault run of yours on Inferno 3 a while ago of you faulting on the last tyre lol ouch

    It was only a matter of time before you dusted yourself off and platinum'd it :) after I figured out all the obstacles(few months) It took me a whole day to zero fault, It was a great feeling. I haven't been back to speed run it yet.

    I think I've reached my ceiling, which is a shame because I was enjoying Evo in a way I didn't get with the original. I think I've got a couple of platinums, but they must've been absolute flukes. I spent a couple of hours last night trying to get platinums on the beginner tracks (figuring they'd be the easiest) but I always seemed to be at least two seconds away from the target time, even though I wasn't faulting and going pretty much all out with the 450cc (minus unnecessary jumps). Two seconds in Trials is a vast chasm and I just couldn't see how I could make the time up. I tried having a go on one of the extreme tracks (I forget which one it was) but couldn't get anywhere on it, I didn't even get to the end.

    So I dropped the trials and moved on to the skill games, I hadn't touched those since getting the game because I flat-out hated them in the original. Nothing much has changed in that department really, apart from the variety of the challenges. Although I liked the one where you have limited fuel and have to see how far you can get.

    My fun with Evo is at an end now I think, I'm just randomly downloading custom tracks now. I'm not sore about it though, I expected it.

    @Spong

    That's a shame spong, as I went through what you went through, frustration and the fuck it attitude. After coming second in the EG competition thing I realised if I put my mind to something I can do it.

    So I went back to the drawing board, worked out how and why people were 10 seconds faster than me when Ive got the accelerator down the whole time, I didn't get it. But I worked at it and studied, didn't rush my expectations and the results came, nothing is handed to you in this game.

    If you don't want it or can't be arsed then that's fine, but there is no reason why you can't be zero faulting extreme tracks one day, and people here can and will help you along the way because we've all been there.

    Have you gone through and got a time in all the tracks? Going back and platinuming them all is hard, the beginner tracks don't give you much room for any error!

    Yep, and I've just done the same thing on Way of the Ninja, faulted on those pallets at the end. :-( The pressure gets to me I think!

    It really isn't actually... hit a single obstacle the right way, or simply don't pause between two particular obstacles and you can easily make up a couple of seconds.

    Also take a look at your line, every time your wheels aren't on the track you're losing time, so any jumps, bumps walls whatever....try figure out a quicker way over to reduce the height and air time, as it all bleeds time.

    Once I realised this it changed everything, Its a science :)

    That's what I've been working on mainly, limiting the unnecessary air time. It looks cool, but it eats away at the clock like nobody's business. The tracks are so fiendish though, even the beginner ones. It seems as though there's two paths through a track; either keeping the hammer down and wasting loads of time in the air, or taking the softly softly approach to stay grounded but wasting time by not going fast enough. The key to success appears to be mixing the two together, but I haven't got my head round it yet.

    Something that annoyed me earlier was when I was replaying Gigatrack to try and get gold. I pretty much stumbled my way through the track on my first attempt and got a silver. When I tried earlier, I was a minute and a half ahead of my initial time at about the three-quarter mark, but then a friend called and I had to go out, so I quit before I got to the end. When I got back in I fired it up and tried again, but for the life of me I couldn't get the time I was getting earlier, every checkpoint I passed the red split-times just got steadily worse. It was inexplicable, I genuinely couldn't understand what it was that I was doing wrong/differently.

    Anyway, I'm still chipping away at it, but the game's well disguised ruthlessness is beginning to take its toll on my simple ways.

    Make it your bitch! I find Gigatrack easier with the 450cc, I might even go back to it one day..

    With the extremes I often just miss an obstacle, then spend 5 minutes on said obstacle getting nowhere near it.

    Giga track is my favourite ever trials track, although a bitch to platinum.

    The last extreme track on the new dlc is very hard too, can understand why some can't complete it

    I beat booped on a track! Yay! Valley of Despair... not a great time so I'm sure he could grab it back pretty quickly. Chuffed, though. Also sneaked ahead of Ka-blamo in the +DLC rankings.

    WotN plat still eludes me, but it will be mine. Soon.

    Nice one Nano :)

    I've been pretty half arsed with my effort with the DLC, so I don't deserve to have a good ranking +DLC

    Back to the attic and magic marker pretty much killed my enthusiasm with the DLCs, Call me a crybaby but I just cannot work out magic marker, or doing the piano bit first time on back to the attic, and I hate leavinv tracks and carrying on its always bugged me and I can't focus 100% on any other tracks on the DLC, those hang over me.

    I think my brain is broken.

    I just had a go at a world record on a track, I thought I'll put a couple hours in and go for it.

    I picked 'trouble at t' mill'

    I did a nice run with a bad last obstacle which cost me a couple seconds maybe more. But bear in mind the time I set is about 3 seconds off the top time......so I reckon it woulda been a top ten time.

    So I spent 4 hours without blinking playing this one track, I think I almost went insane.

    It reminded me of that Einstein quote about definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results....or something

    Trying for top times is bad for your mental and physical health :) I should stick to and be happy with being a top 1000 rider and not top ten :)

    Just got top friends list times on 20 of the 24 tracks on Origin of pain.

    magic marker is still a C word though, it's a broken track and its for gays.....nothing to do with me not being able to do it o:)

    I take a break from this game for a couple days and Ka-blamo somehow surges a full million points ahead of me.

    Yeah Magic Marker is the hardest track in the game, no doubt about it. That bit where you have to leap onto the steep slope... I just have no idea. The rest isn't too bad I guess.
