Hmm, I find that Engine Upgrade on a Zuckuss Party Bus just isn't worth the points.

Do you find it works?

I was wondering that too. I love Engine Upgrade on a big-base ship because they gain a lot of positioning flexibility. But if you're going to be stacking stress, you won't get to boost that often.

Nice build; I concur on the Engine Upgrade, though, especially if you're often stacking stress high. Anti-Pursuit Lasers or Ion Projector might be a good alternative if you find you're using the YV's stop maneuver to create pile-ups (a favorite tactic of mine).

I haven't sued it since all the new crew came out, but for a while my favorite Bossk was:

Calculation
HLC
Recon Specialist
K4 Security Droid
Outlaw Tech
Engine Upgrade

Fairly reliable 5 hits from any range in arc this way.

Maneuvering fins are always an option. Not as good as engine, but you can always dial in a white turn and change it to a bank. Gives a small level of unpredictability.

With the new FAQ there's another option as well: Dial in a red turn while stressed. Then you have your choice of changing it to a bank or doing a 2 straight.

They will either consider this a feature or errata the faq soon...

I'd be surprised if they changed it again so soon after introducing the change.
