MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled


The irony of this discussion, that is leading nowhere, is that you all assume that the "prototype" class is actually prototype. Apart from fuel conservation, what are all these electronic aids for? In my humble opinion, they are to control a highly tuned engine that is capable of breaking traction and lifting the front wheel as soon as the power "comes on". This is what is required when using outdated naturally aspirated garbage, which is what all these moto blow bags are. If forced induction, specifically supercharging not that turbo nonsense, was allowed then a perfectly linear power delivery is easily achieved and there is no need for million dollar engines, pneumatic valve control etc. Then anyone can build a 250hp engine. What is needed is a real prototype class.

MotoGP » Ducati already on track at Sepang


Let's see. First of all the keyboard brigade blamed the carbon frame. That's gone. Then they said it was the 90 degree engine. Yes, Ducati have to narrow the Vee so they can move the engine forward. Wrong on both counts. Honda has a 90 degree engine and the Ducati engine already has room to move the engine further forward and they have already tried it. Now that load of garbage has been replaced by stupid theory number three, mass centralization. If only those engineers at Ducati were as smart as the posters on Crash they would have solved this problem a long time ago. Too funny!

MotoGP » Cal Crutchlow - Q&A: Part 2


For Cal Crutchlow, My two cents worth. Ask to ride every incarnation of the Ducati GP bike from at least the last steel framed version forwards. Maybe that won't be against the ridiculous testing rules. Then you will know something about the Ducati's development history and will be able to make informed decisions.
