lol im just crap at a game when i get it! hehe but i choose ships with 4/5 shield and im on my 3rd tournament but i just keep blowing up! i'll be doing great, atleast 3rd place, and theres just too many tight corners! lol im getting better using my airbrakes but is there anyway of upgrading your shield mid race? i know you can absorb your power ups but does that just give you a speed burst? other than that the only hope i can have is to keep hoping i get a temp. shield power up!!! thnx!
