MotoGP » Fresh hope for Valentino Rossi?

Burgess has reported in the past how they lucked into the setting that Rossi likes with the M1. That being the seat height set very high. This is what Rossi appears to be referring to. The Ducati however has this low attitude and this was reported to be the case by Alan Cathcart a long time ago. All this talk about binning the engine seems ridiculous to me, but I am not an engineer. Preconceptions do not lead to objective thinking. Stoner has indicated that had he remained with Ducati he would have preferred the 'screamer' engine, if you can consider that such a thing even exists with a ninety degree V-four. In any case, Rossi needs to start with a clean slate and forget about how to ride and setup a Yamaha. Maybe he is at that point.

MotoGP » Arm-pump caused Stoner slump

The interviewer asks questions so that the riders can elaborate on what happened during the race. If I lost the lead due to arm pump, and someone asked me what happened that caused me to slow down then I would explain that I suffered arm pump. Stoner may have been guilty of 'moaning' in the past but I cannot see this as moaning.

MotoGP » Michael Czysz: How to save MotoGP

Oh really? A manufacturer has to spend gazillions on a naturally aspirated engine to make some power. What a revelation, not! How about proposing the cheap alternative, forced induction. Oh no! Don't mention that. Let's just have an endless diatribe about hp limits, rev limits, spending limits, electronic limits ad nauseam. F1 is going back to forced induction to make it cheaper and more fuel efficient. Are any bells ringing yet? Every dollar you spend on a naturally aspirated engine is a wasted dollar. As always this post will be ignored. Same as banning fuel injection on two strokes, breathtakingly stupid.

MotoGP » Burgess: 360km/h 1000cc MotoGP bikes 'folly'

Repetition, but since Burgess et al are allowed to do it, so am I. Rules: 1/ 750cc 2/ Forced induction is allowed, after all this is the "prototype" class. LMAO 3/ Use as much fuel as you like 4/ No electronics at all. A supercharged engine does not need electronics because it has a linear power delivery. 5/ Any number of cylinders, bore diameter whatever. It will make no difference because a road engine with a rotrex supercharger would blow these pieces of multi-million dollar junk off the dyno. This is known by the factories and is why they will never allow it to happen. Electronics is their way to lock out the competition and people like Burgess sprout garbage that is completely irrelevant to the real problem. Building an engine to compete with the factories is dead simple and cheap as chips, that is why it is banned.
