What is the best set up to get the very fastest possible full impulse? Ship type? Consoles? Engines? Etc., anything that can add to your full impulse speed.
Ship would any with high impulse modifiers, which are typical of small vessels such as escort class, certain fighters and shuttles.
As for gear, you should look for anything that can give a boost to full impulse speeds, which are usually more engine involved, anything that might add to your driver coil skill, as well as your starship impulse thruster skill.
Starship engine performance may have some effect as well, but unsure how much, if any when it comes to full impulse speeds compared to driver coil.
Some cores carry a mod that can effect engpwr, as well as your driver coil skill, so this may be of interest as well.
Don't just assume things, do read into things detailed description as much as possible, as this will help with a lot of the information you need, but also remember some of that info can be outdated, or misleading due to bad developer descriptions at times.
