Keyboard controls? I ran into a bug where I was off track.
A downloadable Super Pilot for Windows
Super Pilot is a futuristic racing game that lets you create, edit and share your tracks in the blink of an eye.
Design your own crazy track by adding loops, twists, or making it vertical, upside-down, or whatever you'd like, using our powerful and easy-to-use track editor.
Then start a race on your own creation to compete against your friends in split-screen, or up to 50 AIs, in a high speed, high adrenaline competition. No physics simulation, no weapons - just master the boost, the drift, and the extreme speed of your ship through impossible loops and turns.
Or just play on the pre-made tracks and simply enjoy the thrill of high speed, no gravity racing!
The game is still in development and this version is an early demo to showcase the core features of the game, and put them to the test. We're looking for feedback on the editor and suggestions on how to improve its usability, as well as general impressions on the racing controls.
So, we'd like to hear from you! Either click the "Send feedback" button on the main menu, or join us for an open conversation on our subreddit. Or give us a shout on our Twitter or Facebook. Or add a comment below. :)

Thanks for your feedback!
Press Enter in the ship selection screen to assign the keyboard to a player. This is only available in Race mode though. If you start a race from the track editor, you need a gamepad to play. This is a bug we will fix it asap.
By any chance do you have a screenshot of the "off track bug"?
Will it ever have linux support?
That's one of the things we'd really like to add, but we need to make sure we're able to properly test and support a Linux version before committing to it. It's definitely on our wish list though!
I was expecting too use backspace to delete a track segment and the mouse wheel to raise / lower the track; also right mouse button to cam rotate.
With regards to gameplay I think the track editor should encourage making fun to play tracks rather than any tracks so if you have figured out what makes a track flow or fun then make it easy to create such tracks (smoothing option comes to mind to take out the sharper turns).
Looks really great and reminds me of Stunts from back in the day where I spent hours swapping tracks on floppies!
Thanks for the great feedback, glad you like the game! And I had not heard about Stunts before, looks pretty cool! It has to be the first track editor ever made - so kind of our heritage, thanks for pointing it out. ;)
Good point about the editor - we're still looking for the right balance between total freedom and making sure it's easy to create something that's fun to play.
Hi there! I run a website/forum for arcade racing games called Rolling Start at http://www.rolling-start.com/ , would you be interested in coming over to talk about your game a bit?
It's a fun game, it's headed in the right direction.
The handling doesn't feel right, it doesn't have drift so it's hard to get the feeling of how to take the curves, it feels like you might have too much control for the speed you have and it ends up causing you to crash a lot because it turns more than expected. Maybe I'm too used to mario kart, but that's a game that feels great.
Then I found a bug, I made a track where all the COMs end up stuck in one place, here's a screencap http://i666.photobucket.com/albums/vv22/freakwolf-photo/Super%20Pilot%2029_09_2016%2022_10_05_zpsrg6unc1r.png We were on the second lap when we found them.
Thanks for you feedback, this is very helpful! We're still iterating on the handling, and are also planning on adding more vehicles with different handling settings, including some with more drifting - one of them may suit your style better. :)
As for the bug, I've never seen that! Is there any chance you saved your track and could send it to us? You should find the file in your User folder, then "Appdata/LocalLow/Dopagames/Super Pilot". Otherwise we'll just try and replicate the turn from your screenshot.
I can't right now, but I'll send you the track tomorrow.
Had a really fun time playing this, even if I did feel a bit motion sick from the speed!
