Corrected, thank you. Brain fart on my part.

And that would have confused who?? Oh well, modified it ... 'cause I'm as anal as you

Yes, I love my Kurtob!!
...
Has anyone checked to ensure the Kurtob does indeed get the rank 4/5 benefits? I wouldn't put it past BW to screw this up.

I haven't done anything like careful testing, but I haven't noticed that I go any slower on the Kurtob with Piloting 5 than with any other speeders. But now I have to go see if I can figure out a reasonable test for it, just to make sure.

UPDATE:
Did some checking, and the Kurtob does indeed appear to work as advertised. Faster than "ordinary" speeders at lower Piloting ranks (1 or 2), and as fast as the others at the higher ranks (3+).

I agree, rocket boost is a no brainer.

The amount of time saved is well worth it.

Also, I'd recommend the Legacy Unlock, Travel, piloting at level 1, if you intend to make more than a few toons. It's 40,000 credits, ( per character, Thank you Adric_the_Red for pointing that out), but again, well worth it, for the time saved. :-)

That unlock is a character unlock, not an account unlock. It is "Only available to the current character when unocked." So it's 40000 credits per character you want to use it on, not spend 40000 credits once and every character gets it.
