Lets not start on the T.C. bandwagon again please

I've been reading this rubbish on crash for three years now, I believed it as well until I went to Phillip Is in 07 and watched (and filmed) Pedrosa and particularly Stoner holding huge long drifts through the corners. (search youtube for 'stoner drift' a clip of him through the 230 km/h turn 3 at P.I.)

You cannot drift a bike without wheelspin, the T.C. is there to stop the rear tyre from completely trashing itself by smoking up and to stop some of the high sides.

All of the top riders have said that if you use to much T.C. you will never be fast
