Well, the large Venture wheel's top speeds were all brought *down* fairly recently. e.g. Monsters lost ~10mph (and stop horribly immediately) and the Springers where a lot slower. So I don't know about buffing the HE wheel's speed by all that much, in this context.
Side note 1: I also noticed that a lot of wheels seem to have been nerfed for top speed. Is this deliberate? Or maybe some accident of physic changes? (Like the little Hawkeye tech with Venture wheels was down to 60mph, from 80mph in the previous patch.)
(3) Also - Hawkeye Big Daddy wheels are entirely incapable of turning while driving forwards. Have they just got too much grip? Is there some way that the the driving system can known to give the wheels on the inside of the turn just a little bit of juice, to lubricate that movement...?
I've done a review of the wheel speeds. The general order should be, Venture have the fastest wheels, then GSO, then Hawkeye and then GeoCorp. I've left Better Future out because they're less about wheels and more about hovering.
Looking at each of the Hawkeye wheels, I've made notes of their name, dimensions, speed and then compared to to the speeds of wheels from other corporations that are roughly the same size:
Hawkeye M4 Medium Track
52 mph (GC 35, Ven 62)
Hawkeye Big Daddy
48 mph (GC 41, Ven 65)
Hawkeye TT12 Big Track
62 mph (GC 45, Ven 60)
Judging by these results, the only outliers (based on the above-stated expectations for corporation differences) are the Hawkeye Bike Wheels, which should be around 65 mph (so I've just given them a buff) and the Hawkeye TT12 Big Track, which should probably be a bit slower, but I'll leave that alone for now. Most of the Hawkeye Wheels are balanced at the right speed considering the extra armour the offer over GSO and Venture.
I know what you're asking for is for the top end wheels to get a bit faster overall which is a fair request, so I'll bump the speeds of the Hawkeye Warhorse and Big Daddy Wheels up a bit and I'll also increase the speeds of the Venture, GSO and GeoCorp wheels that are a similar size in step with them.
