You'd probably find there's a lot more going on (going off?) with modern traction control than just spark on/off. You've only got to get onto Honda's website and have a look at some of the sh!t they've got to realise just how much electronics Honda "could" have tucked away in their ECU. At the press of a button the throttle grip could become a wheelie angle setpoint with the ECU getting you up there and keeping it there. Who knows what their "active" steering damper is really doing. Just check out Honda's U3-X. I'm not saying Stoner uses more or less TC than anyone else but you could be well assured that the nerdy boys at Honda will be trying to pack of much of it into their MotoGP bike as they can. Even Mick Doohan used to tell them to "fcuk that sh!t off to Criville's bike and if Criville starts beating me, then I'll try it."
