Much faster speeders.

I agree. Speeders need to feel like you're, you know... speeding. I'd like to see the speeders be closer in speed to the "taxi" speeders

But, I would suggest that faster speeders would also be harder to pilot, with a sense of acceleration, inertia and momentum that would prevent the rider from making hair pin turns and on demand stops. For balance, I'd also suggest that this be limited to the main access roads on most maps. Straying off the main paths would revert you back to the normal segway style putter, essentially penalizing those that can't navigate the course.

You can guess where i'm going with this... Speeder racing!

God, if the fastest speeder was only 110% of running speed, that would be terrible!

Thankfully, the fastest speeder increases speed by 110% instead.

It would be cool if the speeders were customizable in speed and appearance. I want me a hot rod!

LVL1: 13Mph x 180% = 23.4.........(or + 90%for 40k"7)
LVL2: 13Mph x 200% = 26Mph......(or + 100% for 210k"7)
LVL3: 13Mph x 220% = 28.6Mph...(or + 110% probably way too much)

The math has been done. The most expensive super advanced ultra high tech flying hover bike is about as fast as Usain Bolt, a human, can run. My car tops out at about 6 times faster. It is absurdly and annoyingly slow.

And think of all the "speeder crashes" we'd have, driving at those reckless speeds

If BW cared about scenery they would have added day-night weather cycles.

Speeders ARE slow.

I think the speed is just fine. If I need to go far its either taxi or quick travel. 110% is fine just to get you here and there.

You should of been in SWG the first week, we had to run everywhere, no transport for miles. It was a godsend when mounts hit!

They want you to "think" they're big but they are not. So they made speeders slow in this game.
Sadly, I'm sure this was their logic.
