WSBK » WSBK to resume with 24 entries


Spinach: Probably because they see Dorna killing off WSBK (headlights, two classes within a race, really?)
Flamini bros as IMS added the headlights not Dorna, it was their response to Ipollito's request to control the series as it was getting too close to Motogp. The series has been on its knees for many years, people have just been blinkered and lied to, no one gives away 93% (twice) of a highly successful series and business. As soon as it was looked into and found to be hemorrhaging cash from the now parent company ISM, things had to change.

MotoGP » Marquez unapologetic over 'aggressive' Lorenzo pass


TalentFan: The hard bit is NOT turning your hand 90 degrees. If you'd ever experienced a power slide you'd know that closing the throttle fully is THE way to ensure you'd get pinged to the moon. It needs to be backed off just enough to control the slide and bring it gently back into line. And electronics processes faster and with the right amount faster and more consistently than humans. Also, the rare highsides we get now are off a closed throttle, not on the power.
What has that got to do with the topic we were on and my questions? You and professorX (PCXMAC) need to read up on software, as again how long does it take to scan 1 loop of a processor doing all the code that the system has to do? How long do you think the brain scans at height of adrenalin which is able to control more things at once than just the back wheel? When you hear an engine cut off in the corner (you won't as you don't watch therefore listen) that is no TC

TalentFan: How about YOU answering one of mine? Which is: If the ECU is as ineffective as you claim, and its not actually assisting the riders, then why is electronic rider aids sucha big area of spending and development?
It is assisting the riders to get to the flag, they don't use that much in practice, its 2 main functions are safety and efficiency. If they didn't have it those bikes would not make it on the fuel available to the end of the race, and do more physical damage to rider, tyres and engine. All of these aspects useful to road car and motorcycle. Wheelspin is wasted fuel, and they still do it, but as with the Pedrosa crash you mentioned the processor could not do its calculations in time to stop him launching into orbit.

Your eyes scan around 5ms (200hz) so a 2ms refresh rate of a screen is pretty much watsted, your brain faster, think what happens when you have an accident and why it all seems slow motion. The revs on a Motogp bike are around 16k. Off the shelf controllers do what you say, but how fast are they updating. I program all sorts of things do from a complete production line to a simple hoist, but scan times are important, you would never notice that because its important in the way its programmed. If a computer can act faster than a brain (now yours maybe) and the human body, why does Asimo keep falling over when he is only asked to do a few tasks at one time?

So IF the software was concentrating on counting a pulse what would be the minimum speed that the processor would need to scan at (loop) just to do that? Bear in mind its around 16k And again how quick do you think the ECU scans (loops) at?

Daftlad: This is the unfortunate reality Mick. You try hard to deny it, and yes this truth is not what most fans want to accept. Time to face reality.
Brilliant, time to stop quoting everything else and answer the question

ProfessorX: actually RSMick, Adrenaline makes it easier to think :) You are not really panicking, you just are kind of DOING IT. There is no what if, only Master Yoda. Bullet time, is another way of thinking about it, almost always though that effect is on recall, but your state of mind during is quite clear, at least mine was last time I slung both wheels laterally. wikipedia friction RSMick. You might learn something.
Haha, now thats a wikipedia way of putting it, no one said anything about panicking did they? Think what you wrote, and why I asked how quick does it take to turn the wrist 90deg at that point.

TalentFan: You saw the Top 5 do this INTO corners, not OUT of them. Big difference.
How can you tell as you were not watching?. So what you are admitting is that rider aids cannot help them into the corners? And they then can spin up thus lose time going INTO the corners? Once they have hit the apex and open up it is not uncommon to hear them shut off for a second, not very often though as they are very, very talented. All the TC can do is attempt to keep control within the set parameters, once the bike is outside that then it cannot react as fast as the very talented right hand of the rider.
Idon'twatchGP's: So, while it LOOKS like the rider who made the pass is faster out of the turn, this is because he was able to delay his rival applying throttle.
Nothing to do with reducing the rivals corner speed then?
