MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still far from the 'front'


Dawg.. Thought I'd come and keep you honest for a while..haha MCN is so slow with the news and everyone seems to be singing songs and speaking to eachother in tongues. It's doing my box in. To the #27ers..this is a Rossi thread so it's hardly surprising you get one or two defending him now is it? Stick to making slurping noises on Stoner threads if you don't like it.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still far from the 'front'


@sleepy and a balanced argument..Wake up Pal! Stoners demands and his crashing put paid to a factory Yamaha ride..Furasawa is on record as saying. Nothing to do with Rossi..it's a favourite Stoner fanboy old chestnut that is fiction. Despite 6 years and countless requests to glean facts from #27ers to back this up, no evidence has been forthcoming, so give it a rest. 2010..Hayden went into the 8th round @ Germany leading Stoner on points. Two-thirds of the way through going into the 12th round @ Misano, he was trailing Stoner by just 10pts. He out qualified Casey four times and finished in front of him seven times that year..which is a better record than Pedrosa last year. Balanced my ar5e.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi still far from the 'front'


Unbeleivable?..You've got my vote and Stoner rode brilliantly but, how fast was that Ducati? I was talking Lorenzo at Motegi however, which was another great battle. He lost though and his post race reaction was that of a spoilt kid, encouraged by his Dad Jarvis. JL and CS..the last two world champs right? I can't EVER remember seeing those pair toe-to-toe in 4 years, can you?..which just about sums up MotoGP during the majority of 800 and the last 2 seasons especially. Here's hoping 1000 changes that a bit. You all want to see it the same as me, so quit your whining.

Haha..Jorge got duffed up in the corners Einstein..what's a more powerful engine got to do with it? Did you see Val blasting past JL like CS did at Catalunya 07? He'd been saying he wanted a battle and got beat, then went crying to Yamaha management complaining of borderline racecraft, how Rossi was dangerous and had history with Gibbers and Stoner..saying inbetween the tears that Rossi had better watch out in the future. pu55y.

"Would Jorge do that?? That's the question you should be asking."..Ranting RawDawg. What..shoot his mouth off? Like @ Motegi 2010. When cruising to the title(where was Stoner then?) and already assuming the #1 spot was his, he stated his desire to go head-to-head with Rossi in a battle on the racetrack. Val was recovering from a broken leg and handed Lorenzo his ar5e. Jorge got suckered into a fight when he could have settled for 4th but honour was at stake and his pride got hurt. He went blubbing to Daddy Jarvis, voice cracking and tears in his eyes. He lost respect. He has never beaten Rossi in a head-to-head or last lap battle. Neither has Stoner. Remember that. This is just testing..Sundays are different.

MotoGP » MotoGP weight debate rumbles on


Perhaps Ducati have come to terms with the fact that the Japanese led MSMA has lost it's influence and it's power to make the rules. Rules which have been directly responsible for extortionate lease prices and without CRT this year would have us looking at a 12 bike grid? Perhaps, like 2004 in WSB when the Japs said all factories were leaving when they weren't because Flammini had had enough of them meddling, they wanted to stay and are prepared to work within a new framework? Perhaps they can see the damage that has been done and agree that the old direction was not sustainable for anyone but Honda and Yamaha? Perhaps the Japanese two-thirds of the MSMA that just plain lied to the GPC, figured that junior partner Ducati would stay quiet on the matter, afraid of repercussions from them? Perhaps they have the good of the sport at heart?

MotoGP » MotoGP weight debate rumbles on


In MCN this week there is a double-page spread that goes into detail about the new Panigale. BSB is the only place you'll be able to see the bike race in Superbike. Ducati Corse are supplying factory test rider Polita with a works built machine that looks absolutely stunning. New rules in BSB this year means the bike will run very close to stock, suspension, brakes and exhaust aside. The Panigale was built with racing in mind and weighs just 164kg as it rolls off the production line completely road legal, with lights and a catalytic exhaust. In BSB they are adding ballast to the bike it is so light. The article says this is an advantage as you can locate it where it's best for balance. Corse have found after miles of testing it's best located under the seat. Anybody who thinks the GP12 couldn't have made 153kg, is kidding themself..

MotoGP » Yamaha developing 'next generation' MotoGP electronics


(cont) It's expensive and complicated to write the software for these systems, which ensures the factories keep the advantage. They have reams of data and experience you can't buy..unless you poach a rivals engineer. Witness BMWs struggle with their Bosch system which is great for cars but struggles with bike dynamics. The engineers too are from the 4-wheeled world and despite the might of BMW lack 2-wheel race experience. Give the bikes more fuel and it takes away much of the point having all this stuff..Safety is a red herring. The trickle down spurious. What is safer..an experienced rider on a bike with no rider aids who through mistakes has gained experience the hard way or, a novice on a bike who implicitly trusts the TC/electronics to sort it out for him?

MotoGP » Yamaha developing 'next generation' MotoGP electronics


These bikes are mapped corner by corner, circuit by circuit and are RACE specific. The battery of sensors send info back to the ECU brain which learns as it goes running prediction simulations to manage 21 litres, enabling the bikes to make race distance. If Stoner whacks the throttle open the computer gives him what the bike needs, not what he's asked for. Can you imagine loading a route specific map into a journey for your bike, in which the objective is to save fuel that takes you past 10 petrol stations..Why? What if you have to change route because of traffic? What if it's dry when you start then rains? Wheel sensors for ABS has been around for years. Street TC uses the same tech in reverse and is nowhere near as complicated as the RACE systems. If they wanted to make engines truly efficient, High Pressure Fuel injection as used on your car is the way to go, but it's banned in GP..(cont)
