MotoGP » MotoGP ‘not far’ from 2016 agreement


mrfill: @tetley Sensors just collect data,!
My point exactly ! Fewer sensors would limit the amount of data available to collect, which would generate the benefits which I have mentioned. Also, If kids can hack the Pentagon's computers, then an ECU will be an easy nut to crack and then hide secrets. I'd also query your statement that one team can look at another's data. Surely each team downloads and stores its own collected data on it's own discrete systems which are not networked for other teams to see? K.I.S.S. is my motto for reducing costs and limiting the advantages of big budgets. And limiting the number of sensors would tackle the problem at its root. Like I said - I've they haven't got it they can't use or manipulate it.

Tetley: I have suggested several times that a limit should be placed on the number of electronic sensors allowed. This would limit what the teams can ask the ECU to do, and will go toward levelling the rich teams with the poorer ones.
The number of 'sensors' doesn't matter. Tuning nowadays is more geek based than oily rags.
Your points seem to contradict each other. Fewer sensors equals fewer parameters equals less scope for electronic advantage. If they haven't got it no amount of money can manipulate it. Fewer sensors would limit the cost and advantage of employing more geeks than less wealthy teams. Fewer sensors would limit the opportunities for hacking the std ECU or installing secret enhancements. There are clever geeks who are capable of cheating this way. The number of sensors is easier to police than electronic invisibles. Fewer sensors would be a move toward what all enthusiasts want - a return to riding skills.

mrfill: There has been a standard ECU for ages. What there has not been is standard software. This is coming for 2016. Any team may submit changes to the software and any changes are passed to ALL teams. i.e. the software is open and there can be no secrets. A level playing field in other words (and about time...) There will be no classes - one set of rules for all. So long as the engine makers cannot dictate which maps can be used, it will reduce considerably the advantage the factory Hondas and Yamahas have and will increase the need for rider skill to win. Is that such a bad thing? A standard ECU is vital, as is standard software.

MotoGP » PICS: Vinales' Suzuki goes pop...


: re: "That's the Yoshimura effect. ( Pops - geddit ? )"
shamaroneyup, got it. now, the man whose services THEY need to get would be... (wait for it) (wait for it) ...Masao Furusawa.
I think they hired Filippo Preziosi, instead. " My way is the way, the only way, the only true way, will always be the way and no way will anyone stray from the way. And things will stay as they are." ( Smiley Face )

BSB » Bridewell teases upcoming announcement


JedPB67 You're getting your Lowes' mixed up lol, :)
Ooops. I bet even their Mum did that. Maybe even their girlfriends ?
Also Camier is already confirmed for the MV ride.
You're right. I didn't read the conformation until later.
Bridewell has history with the Lorini Honda team in WSS, he also has good relations with Italian teams. He could also go to Pedercini Kawasaki (apparently a semi factory team next year) if he were to go to that paddock.
It's a possibility, but I don't think a probability. He also has history with Aprilia, which prompted my suggestion. However, I think the eventuality will be TAS Tyco BMW.
