From a strictly personal point of view, I never really understand racing games, so my comment will be biased.

That said - the game was... very odd. Maybe I'm pampered by modern racing and the precise controls / drifting and whatnot. Controlling the ship was very much like playing a game of bumper cars. Again, though, I attribute this to modern racing pampering.

None of us seemed to be able to activate the active components, and the UI froze after the first race. I can see though that there is a plan on progression - with all the different components that can be upgraded, I can see that this game is meant to be played again and again.

There's probably more that DarkCampaign will mention, but that's it from me. Thanks for the game and hope that this game will fare well.
I spent a hefty portion of time playing this game back after it was submitted, once you have the controls down; it's absolutely amazing. After the controls are learned, the only difficult things about it are caused by low level ship parts. This game entices the player to continually race to gain the money to upgrade and make their ship more controllable and stronger. Based on your base ship and the parts you buy, you can determine a play style, from super fast racer (fast/weak) to a powerful tank (strong/slow). There is an awesome amount of customization and the gameplay is great and amusing. This is a hidden gem and I wish more people would discover it!
