Fun With (Mid-Tier) Custom Machines
Reply to this Post

Everyone knows (or should know) some of the higher tier, beat staff ghosts twice over custom machines. So I wanted to play with some (hopefully) mid-low / mid tier custom machines. I spent the greater part of some hours toying with parts (wanting to get a special Adjective-Noun name) until I thought a machine might be decent and try them out. So far I got these seven.

(Note: Not very heavy testing or research, just a few minutes on Aeropolis: Multiplex (no snaking or advance tech sans some QT and MT) so I can get a feel for these machines. More to come soon. If anyone else tries these, tell me what you think of them; and if you got a machine I should try, let me know =D )

Great Crest   {Grand Base   +   Energy Crest   + Jupiter -Q} 2110kg

          Body: A   /   Boost: D   /   Grip: B

          - Excellent Body

          - Handles good; may need to work the shoulder buttons a bit on 100% Max Speed

          - Boost ability could be better; MT can compensate

          - I use it at 100% Max Speed to get the most out of it

 

Wonder Goose -Z   {Aqua Goose   +   Wonder worm   +   Triple -Z} 1650kg

          Body: C   /   Boost: A   /   Grip: D

          - Cruises at about 1100 km/h

          - Needs to slide to make corners and turns

          - Acceleration past 50% Settings is horrid. Do not even sniff at a wall. Ever.

          - I prefer to use it at 70% - 90% Settings

 

Wild Lynx   {Wild Chariot   +   Super Lynx   +   Bazooka -YS} 1510kg

          Body: B   /   Boost: D   /   Grip: B

          - Great acceleration and handling; controls a little sensative though

          - Top speed and boost ability leave a lot to be desired 

          - I always use it a 100% Max Speed

          - Only machine of these 7 that I did not get a sub 40sec lap time on Multiplex

 

Valiant Vixen   {Valiant Jaguar   +   Cyber Fox   +   Boxer -2C} 1720kg

          Body: B   /   Boost: C   /   Grip: C

          - Decent handling; work the shoulders a bit

          - Top speed not great but can reach high speeds with some effort

          - A decent all-around machine as far as this list goes

          - Not the sexiest looking machine despite its name =P

 

Misty Wolf   {Fire Wolf   + Scud Viper   +   Tiger -RZ} 1540kg

          Body: B   /   Boost: C   /   Grip: C

         - Handles well-enough; loses control a bit of higher speeds

         - Average cruising pseed; boost speed is pretty good

         - Misty Wolf vs. Valiant Vixen for better all-around machine of these 7. Might come down to preferance of name and looks *Le shrug*

         - Fun Tidbit: When boosting, if you listen closly near the end of its boost state you can hear a howling-like sound, fitting for the machines name. Dat Tiger -RZ tho =D

 

Combat Tyrant    {Big Tyrant   +   Combat Cannon   +   Sunrise 140} 2260kg

          Body: A   /   Boost: E   /   Grip: A 

          - A tweak to one one of my favorite machines (for some reason) the Heat Hammer; this one controls a little tighter and its cruising max speed on 100% Max Acceleration is 1000 km/h

          - The machine Black Shadow uses when he doesnt feel like winning

          - Finally found a use for the Big Tyrant body

 

Berserk Legion -R   {Valiant Jaguar   +   Super Lynx   +   Scorpion -R} 1860kg

          Body: B   /   Boost: C   /   Grip: B

          - Berserk Legion -R vs. Misty Wolf vs. Valient Vixen. BL -R is the heaviest of the 3, ergo a little faster

          - Performs well enough on both 100% Acceleration and Max Speed

          - The other machines pulled 39:xxx secs on a lap in Multiplex; BL -R pulled 38:xxx (Compared to what I watch before is not all that great, but good for me)

 

 

 

Here's some more machines, some of them are similar to the first 7: Great Lizard {Body: A / Boost: D / Grip: B} 2100kg Grand Base + Heat Snake + Saturn -SG - See Great Crest, they're like twin brothers though this one looses speed when making turns at 100% Max Speed, Crest may or may not - This is a more *natural* looking machine, so there is that Flame Wolf {Body: B / Boost: C / Grip: B} 1700kg Fire Wolf + Heat Snake + Tiger -RZ - See Misty Wolf, this is her older brother Shining Pigeon -V2 {Body: D / Boost: A / Grip: C} 1680kg Funny Swallow + Shining Spear + Thunderbolt -V2 - It has the ability "Slow Start" - Slick on is controls, but manageable - More like a hawk than a pigeon with its speed - Heavier version is the Shining Glider (Holy Spider body); Lighter version is the Shining Blade (Optical Wing body). All 3 look like birds if you can imagine it Aqua Griffin {Body: C / Boost: A / Grip: C} 1810kg Aqua Goose + Sonic Solider + Devilfish -RX - Special name machine, though I don't know if its been listed somewhere else before - Performs like the Wonder Goose -Z; go with this one if you like special names Astro Master -R {Body: C / Boost: C / Grip: A} 1700kg Space Cancer + Combat Cannon + Scorpion -R - Competes with, if not beats, the Wild Lynx for best handling machine of this list so far - Does beat, if not destroy, the Wild Lynx in all aspects of speed though. - Performs well for a mid-heavy almost heavy machine; its most useful at 100% Max Speed - The machine Jody uses when she feels like winning Wonder Chariot / Wolf / Jaguar - Z {Body: B / Boost: A / Grip: D} 1750kg / 1790kg / 1950kg Wild Chariot / Fire Wolf / Valiant Jaguar + Wonder Worm + Triple -Z - All 3 handle good and have excellent speed; Jaguar version needs to compensate a little for it controls a little tighter but is a little faster - Chariot and Wolf versions have the slightest of differences; it comes down to which body you like more, I'm more of a Wild Chariot fan - Someone better than me can make these some viable machines; these aren't B.A.D. at all - Wonder Worm is best D-Rank cockpit

Gallant Star-G4 and Quick Star-G4 are so good that I dont think I even played with the other parts. I forget the part to make it but I did play with Beat The Beast a few times because I liked the name.

Thats what happens Mengsk when you only play with the good stuff, especially with the Titan -G4 part. that booster is like a cure all; I made a note that none of the machines that are and will be listed here will have -G4 in their name. Oh and I subscribed to you on Youtube Mengsk, more Crazy Bear please lol. Sorry about the edited topic part, dont know if I should make a new topic post or not. I do not want to clog the forums :I

It's always fun to try out the specially named custom machines: http://cycloawaodorin.sakura.ne.jp/FZGX/table/snm_hyou.html

Been a while since I've played around with those though. Also, here's one with some nice shift boosts: Megalo Cruiser + Combat Cannon + Euros -01.

 I personally like the C bodies the most for casual play (GP mode), they offer some good all round stats

I will add one that provides a relaxed way of finishing first on master difficulty (unless the course has many narrow corners):

Tornado Cancer -4X {Space Cancer + Combat Cannon + Punisher -4X} 1880 kg

Body: C  /  Boost: B  /  Grip: A

- cruising max. speed over 1100 km/h

- almost never skids out of control (good if you're not used to analog stick and tilt it all the way)

- boost, grip and even acceleration seem to be better than in Fire Stingray

The vehicle looks like what Octoman would drive if he could afford a custom machine (you can build it on gsv.xii.jp/fzgx/)
