S!

These aren't bug reports or complaints, just wondering about a few things..

1) When you are taxing in planes with nosegear and the nosegear turns, does it help the plane turn at all? I know it obviously does in real life, but in planes in AEP when you see the wheel turn from outside the plane it seems to not be helping you taxi at all.

2) A friend and I where doing some short take off competitions in P-38's and trying to clear the hangars without crashing (quite fun!) I used the wheelbrakes, but past around 50% or so throttle, it seems that the plane begins to move despite the fact that the brakes are in place...I just watched that P-38 video and it said that you should depress the brakes to allow for max. manifold pressure prior to taking off. But you can't do this in AEP without beginning to move, so is this something overlooked by 1C?

Thanks in advance, there's some more stuff I wanted to ask but I forgot. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Brakes in real life do not always hold a planehttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif when you use b do you put some rudder in to as it should swing well with a shot of power. when you try turning put in rudder b and power and it will swing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Incidently i think it was the Phantom that if you put in full throttle with the Brakes on the tyres would start rotating on the rims.....
