MotoGP » Five things to look out for at Sepang II

shamarone: re: "A 2014 bike, the 2015 Valencia bike and a new 2015 bike. Marquez also revealed he had a fourth option." OMG somebody's a chassis building JUGGERNAUT. take notes Ducati, this is how you develop a winning ally twin-spar. I'm sure Louie has told you, but you tirelessly knock out iteration after iteration till you find one that works. there are no "magic shortcuts", and even when you DO find one that works...? you say screw it and ya knock out another one. LOL when you have ZERO expertise fashioning aluminium (relative to the Japanese) having an outside contractor (which you guys love to do for everything) basically create 1 new frame for you every 2 years is not going to get it done. the technical capability must be IN-HOUSE. if Audi still hasn't set you up like this...? then guess what, you still have a problem.
BRAVO! I agree 100%.

MotoGP » Five things to look out for at Sepang II

Beard9X: PS Shamarone & Realist What about you teaxh Ducati how to "fashion chassis" and to make a competitive bike?
You really lack a bit of reading comprehension don't you? It has been stated explicitly and implicitly by Ducati and those "in the know" that Ducati lacked the experience [relative to the Japanese] when it came to building twin spar frames. This has been reiterated over the years throughout the paddock, with journalists, etc. Why you're acting as though Shamarone is pulling such statements out of his a$$ is beyond me. It's common knowledge (..well, obviously not common enough).

MotoGP » Ducati GP14 and GP15: Back-to-Back

Beard9X: Abefan I agree about the adjustments on GP14.3. But GP14.3 shared almost no part with the GP15. There was no way, engine/chassis wise they could have tested the GP15 under the name of GP14.3. The GP15 has a totally different engine(smaller, different V angle) and exhaust system with the water pump placed in front of the front bank and oddly on the right side of the block (opposite to RCV and M1). Also the wheel base is narrower which is maybe to cure the understeer. I really believe that GP15 will deliver. Gooo AD gooo AD
How much of your reputation are you willing to bet on it?
