WSBK » Pirelli continues as Official WSBK Tyre Supplier

JimmyTheRealOne: Nice. I've always liked Pirelli. They have the Italian charm which Bridgestone or Michelin lack and that perfectly fits WSBK. Besides, I like their logo :-P
But the lap times would be much better with Bridgestone and Mich.
No they wouldn't, not for the daft reasons of above again but for the fact the Pirellis are a lot softer than the Bridgestones in all aspects. They are designed to degrade after a few laps hence why the fastest laps in WSB are usually within the first 5 or 6 laps by all riders. Motogp the fastest laps are set towards the back of the race.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Mathew Birt said today that teams are now facing up to the fact that Marquez just didn't have an advantage machine wise. More teams are trying to ditch the Suter for a Kalex and that Suter are likely to pull out at the end of 2015, thus leaving a grid full of Kalex (apart from a TSR and 2 Tech3) and they cannot support this. But a one make series is close, but they will still say the other rider has better suspension than the other.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


Kenfaustus: Ah so you have read up on the unleaded fuel thing then? Easy accessible information over the net., you have used it on 2 different threads (totally off course on the other), do you know who was the first to use it in 92? As for being dense my little internet warrior I am all ears, and as logic software is my profession I would like to know your opinion on the reason they can not smooth the Akira engines power with the Marelli unit and why they could not smooth previous versions of the engine with the Motec. It would be better to share your opinion rather than keyboard warrior type remarks, it helps credibility. Doohan was looking for an advantage very true, and as I said before the electronic control of the power valve had improved as had mapping strategies, but he wasn't looking to tame the engine, it had the desired effect by 'scaring' the opposition who couldn't use it. I'd like your opinion on the area of improvements in the ECU.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Its only normal that the people on this site who doubt the talent of the riders and the genius of the engineers refute this interview, they usually refuse to even read or acknowledge any proof or reason provided before. Burgess is rumored to be coming back with Miller and Rossi has stated that he regrets leaving Yamaha and the reasons for doing so.

Really? I think you need to read your history because your knowledge of the 2 stroke road racing engine and its tyres seem to be a bit vague in your head, as is the idea that Bridgsetone stole a tyre and then everything was rosy. No other rider apart from Doohan used the screamer engine in 1997, they couldn't get on with it, they preffered the 90deg firing to soften the blow on the tyre and use corner speed. It was McCoy who used the tyre to spin up to get the longevity out of it, something he could not repeat on the Dunlop, this is when riders started to emulate this later in 02 on the 990. Don't know who you are calling Charlie but you might want to explain how any electronics can tame any engine, particular the Akira example I gave you. Please give any links to give proof that Doohan switched back to the screamer purely because of electronics. PS Doohans profile on this very site gives you a slight insight, plus I have lived through that era.

kenfaustus: think it is self evident. With today's EMS, it is possible to "fix" a poor design and optimize a good one though out the entire power band.
Not strictly true is it? The Akira prepared engine produces lots of power yet the Marelli system cannot sort it out. Doohans reason for returning to the screamer was more because tyre technology had taken a leap forward, with the carcass being stronger and better compounds able to take the strain of more wheelspin, but you are right the electronic power valve had come a long way in that time. Motocross engines are different as they don't rev as high as far as I know, but 500's and the dreaded 750's all had limited power until they found a way to control it. My 1980 Becket tuned RD250 has all the power between 8k and 10.5k nothing under that around 40HP. Someone put a Harris YZR500 on the road in MCN just to show how good the power spread was.
