Quit bragging Vall!
I can't even afford an Asp yet!
I would honestly suggest getting the t-7. You can sell it back when you can afford a Clipper. If you sell your internals and downgrade the mains back to E class, you won't lose much money. Especially since you will automatically gain 200% cargo capacity, thereby cutting your grind in half.
The t7 is super cheap to run. Hull repairs are crazy cheap...to the point you can actually run it without shields (not recommended, but you'd gain probably 32t of cargo space). If you get interdicted, you can dump some cargo and be on your way. It isn't much bigger in profile than the t-6, it's just three times longer.
I get the whole idea of wanting to grind money to buy a ship then instantly upgrade it...but it doesn't have to be quite so hard. A standard t7 or clipper is definitely viable for trading.
And, unfortunately, you have to trade to progress. Bounty hunting and exploring are fun, but do not make money.This comment was edited on Feb 3, 2015, 17:36.
