MotoGP » Minor MotoGP rule changes announced at Assen

with all due respect Bringbackthe990s, it is not Dorna who kills motogp. instead it is the manufacturers. Dorna cannot simply tweak the rules without taking the view of them. can you imagine motogp without Honda, Yamaha, Ducati? carbon brakes to stay? by all means, carbon brakes must go. it did not promote closer racing by extending the sprinting distance and shortening the braking range. and it did not benefit production models either. face facts - carbon brakes have been around for 20 years and still no mass production bike use it. no standard ecu? no problem. in fact it makes motogp more relevant to the manufacturers. sophisticated motogp electronics have found its way to production bikes, unlike carbon brakes. honda propose a cut-price rc213v? instead, why not propose all manufacturers to supply their engines to independent teams/constructor? such arrangement have worked well in F1, so why not motogp factories follow suit? by doing this, crt will no longer be relevant.

MotoGP » Spies, Edwards take sideswipe at Rookie Rule change

I agree with King Kenny in the sense that factories also should shoulder the blame for ruining MotoGP as well, not just Dorna. Remember in the early 90s where there are specialist chassis constructors compete against the factories using the same engine as them? Apparently Dorna wants to go to that path again, mimicking F1 in many ways. Remember Moriwaki MD211V and KR211/212V? This is the way to go but apparently factories does not like the prospect of being beaten by small constructors using the same engine as their factory team. They can take accept such prospect in the smaller class (Moto3), but not in MotoGP where prestige is everything. How do Honda feel if say, FTR or Suter, can build a sweeter, more precise chassis for their RC213V engine compared to their own chassis? CRT, someway or another, is created to pressure them so that they will follow that path albeit reluctantly. MotoGP should remain all-prototype racing, but I want the factories to be considerate enough to open up

F1 » Minardi: Welcome to the 'Pirelli World Championship'

@ shamarone i got your point. but instead of evenly spacing the firing interval like those V8 American Muscle Cars, the idea here is to have two cylinders firing together at the same time, making it something like a V8 mimicking a V4 or inline-4 with crossplane crankshaft with irregular firing pattern overall. thus making it like a bigger bigbang motoGP engine. in order to give better tyre life and traction, i believe this is what F1 needs right now.
