Good post @ yawn...a whole bunch can't seem to figure that early on the gas,traction,translates to max top speed in a confined space. Stoner 2007 Catalunya revisited.
mmm, just wondering where the other factory rider's find their heads right now behind Spies.
Agree with RawDawg...a lot of numbers to be crunched right now.
Let's see what tomorrow brings.

I apprecaite everyone who posted the trap speeds.

Makes me wonder if it is a gearing issue, an engine issue, or corner exit issue (possibly all three).

"Wll that raises the question - if the exhaust isn't helping them than is it hindering them in terms of top end speed and/or torque off the corners?"


I doubt it. I don't imagine they'd take the M1 to Leo Vinces factory to have a full exhaust made for the bike. It's probably just a canister stuck on the end, which wouldn't do much one way or the other. The pipes are probably the same as what the Fiat bikes have. That's assuming that Yamaha designed the Fiat teams exhaust, and not Termignoni. If Termignoni designed the Fiat bikes full exhaust then the Tech 3 teams could very well be completely different. I doubt it though.

I dont pay too much attention to the 1st practice session times.Too much tuning and tweaking goes on.As Southerner and Rawdawg have said,tomorrow the riders should have got the setup more consistent and the lap times should start to give a more clear picture of what the race pace will be like.

there is no advantage or disadvantage on performance of leo vince compare to termignoni exhuast.. is just sponsorship and for commercial porpusese nothing else on part of leo vince. IMO

Cal is present in the pit lane and was ask by Smith about the ride for tech 3 and he just doesn't want to comment on that issue. i guess Cal hasn't completely made his mind if his going to ride for tech3 or not.
