How is the FBA emulation? I know MAME is known for having some pretty serious input lag on a lot of games, and FBA is usually better in that area. Is the emulation quality as good in FBA, or not really?

The current version of MAME doesn't have these issues. We tested it pretty thoroughly at a tournament a few weeks ago, and the majority of players felt great about it. No speed issues, so long as your laptop is of decent quality, not running any programs in the background, has plenty of disk space, and has lag-free monitors.

I tried this recently and MAME US Turbo 2 still felt fast to me compared to an arcade board. I didn't have an arcade board to test it side by side, but it still felt a solid notch faster than supergun Japanese Turbo 3. Could be in my head, it just seems like every time I play offline, it's is way slower than online and I drop booms and combos constantly and walkup throws seem to take forever.

Messing around with MAME as suggested. I've got a relatively low lag LCD, but of course I get screen tearing. I know vsync adds a frame of lag no matter what. What's the best way to eliminate the screen tearing without changing the speed of the game? Can I have the game sync to my monitor refresh rate and call it good?

Realize that US Turbo 2 runs faster than Japanese Speed 3

I heard this but before we state it as a fact we need some kind of testing / proof.
For what I know, US T2 and JP T3 are 99% alike.
HDR classic timing is definitely off.
I agree that the latest MAME is pretty good.
But that could be related to your input device, computer and your output (LCD)
Arcade board + CRT is still more responsive (thus felt slower as you can react to things better [less input/output lag]).
What DGV is doing is great as arcade will be truly gone in a decade. If we foresee we still want to play this game we need a backup plan.
