Hey there, what do these numbers mean? Effective thrust? Thrust/Weight ratio? Some sort of composite score? I'm a little confused 1) does lower scores = better maneuverability? 2) If that is indeed the case, the racing 350r would seem to have worse forward "maneuverability" than many non-racing ships and the Sabre has less lateral "maneuverability" than the hornet. If this isn't the case and higher = better maneuvering, then the Aurora has much more forward "maneuverability" than both racing ships. So actually the numbers are confusing either way I look at it.
I actually forget the thread it came from. Though a little hard to say it in words when I don't remember the specifics, it was something along the lines of rate of thrust over time where lower is better. That is to say, thrusters with higher numbers indicate that it takes longer to reach full thrust... I think it has something similar to 0 to 60 in 7 seconds or something odd like that with cars.
Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

Gotcha, maybe either time for the thrusters to 'spool up,' which is essentially a measure of jerk (i.e. rate of change of acceleration), or maybe the time it takes for the ship to from 0 to full speed along a given axis.
