"- Strafe and reverse thrust top speed is now lower than your boost top speed (2/3)"
Fixes are really all about finding new and better ways to exploit the mechanics: https://imgur.com/a/9g4Gu
It is kinda fun.
@edit Super speed exploits aside though, I kinda think stronger strafing was better, it felt more powerful, zipping around. I dunno, there's something about it now, when you first press the button there's a boost but then it's very weak. Doesn't feel like 2/3 at some angles at all.
