MotoGP » Edwards improvises to boost CRT status

'We had a big problem in the beginning of the race with the traction control. I spent the next few laps playing with it, trying to get something more to get it to be smoother' - Colin Edwards

From what I've read, the ART bikes are putting down around 220bph vs. 240bhp on the prototypes. I think I remember hearing that Petrucci's bike is the slowest at only around 190bhp, is 40km/hr slower than prototypes, and actually has an electric starter. The biggest difference between the CRTs and prototypes is the electronics, because this costs the most to develop.

I lost respect and love for Edwards. WSBK is way better than most motogp protocraps and lights ahead of the CRT jokes.

I know the pay is better but what happened to the desire to win? Has making money at the back of the grid changed that?

"There will come a day when the CRT platform is developed and Edwards will reap the benefits from heading into such territory courageously."@Realist

There is nothing courageous using a "bad" ECU when better ones are available.

NO CRT entry has been courageous. None have even got to the level of SBK.

Turn up the wick, blow some motors, run out of fuel.
Come on boys, grow some cojones.
