MotoGP » Lorenzo dismisses Ducati MotoGP rumours

shamarone...the general rule is it increases EXPONENTIALLY as a function of speed. at twice the speed, the component of work is done twice as fast, this means your gonna need (at a min) 4x the power... and where do we get that...?
2 times the speed = 4 times the drag = 8 times the power But honestly, 3-4 kg each way isn' make or break for these guys and I don't remember Rossi's size and weight being a problem when he was winning, even when he was on 125's..

MotoGP » Ducati: 'No further plans' for Open MotoGP class

JcRacing: JackSMU Magnetti Marelli have eight different models of ECU. Some of them require an external data logger, some don't. The physical ECU does have an impact on what parameters you can use. With the spec ECU you're stuck with the features that have been implemented into it and it is not possible to alter the software itself. That's why I say parameters and not algorithms. Good luck trying to make an SRD-160 ECU do the same a Marvel4.5 does.
Exactly, it's not about putting the right numbers in the right boxes. By using their own software, factories can create their own "boxes" to put the numbers in. If they feel the need to want the ECU to do a real time spectral analysis on sensor input X then vary output Y this way when a particular set of frequency characterics appear, it'd only takes the programmer back at Honda/Yamah an hour to write that function into the existing code? What's the current options in an over-the-counter ECU for handling chatter

MotoGP » Moto2: Anthony West - Q&A

If the WADA wan't credibility they need to take down the big fish, not just pick on the liitle ones. However even in local racing, a "first offence" is/was a two year automatic ban. I will admit, I've never liked Ant West after the Dee Cee Jeans team pulled the pin on Marcus Payten's 500cc ride (another Aussie) after the 2001 Japanese GP and Westy got the seat. I'll never know the true story but it smacked of a talented rider getting pulled for a paying one.

MotoGP » Six races to decide Rossi's MotoGP future

Don't forget Mick Doohan 5 times, Dani Pedrosa 3 and Biaggi 4 times using the same BS math that Rossi fans invented to inflate his WC credentials. Nobody in their right mind would value DP's or MB's WC tally over Stoner's 2. Heck, even Loris has got 3 WC's Le's just say Rossi's got 6 WC's so he can be fairly compared to the rest of the greats that didn't always have the opportunity to start in the lower classes.

MotoGP » Honda vows MotoGP withdrawal over ECU plans

"Honda killed off 2-strokes, first in dirt bikes then in GP" In Australia, the "open" class of motorcross dropped it's capacity limit making the CR500 inelligible to compete unless it was sleaved down. This happend not long after the CR500 was dropped from the showroom floor and all you could pick from was various ~450cc fourstokes. I don't know what influence the manufacturerers had over Motorcycling Australia but it certainly created the perception that they infuence the rulemaking to suit their marketing needs...

MotoGP » Should MotoGP change its points system?

I don't want to see it changed BUT I wonder if a system of protecting a points position might be worth investigating. Imagine if a rider in 2nd, 3rd etc had a limited number of opportunities throughout a season to signal the pits during a race to "bank" the current position points in the event of a DNF resulting from a crash while engaging in an attempt to improve their position. ie. Rider in 3rd, signal their pit to bank the 16 points, then pushes on. If they crash out they keep the 16 points, if they gain positions they receive the propper points. I wouldn't want to see a change in the points but this would certainly encourage a rider to take that extra risk in one or two extra races a year where they may have otherwise just settled for the points??
