Thats a good idea. I can't remember exactly, but wasn't an option like that available in SFC? Anyway, I'd still like the speed indicator, can be helpful in knowing how to close gaps, or if i need to increase power to the engines to outrun an enemy, etc. Being a more informed player never hurt. But yea, I like that option also.
TBH, the mouse should never have to be used during gameplay outside of perhaps aiming in an FPS.
