I thought C/L combat consisted only of shortening the streamer of your opponent as I never heard of strafing infantry -

As far as resupply, the rat racing guys working as pit crew have fuel cans and batteries strapped to their wrists as I recall from pictures and videos.

You have no choice but to accelerate in dives and decelerate in climbs and can only strive for constant speed using the 4-2-4 break (engine leans out going uphill & richens up going downhill) as far as I know.
