MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled

@ Truefan Thanks for your comment, I'm aware the ECU contains an EPROM chip. Yes you can change and modify the fuel and ignition maps, remove throttle restrictions that control and tames the power in the first few gears, remove top speed limitiers, vary the performance of the second secondary butterflies, remove any timing regards. Its not the hardware (bike) that's great, it's the software that has got a lot better, hence why HRC are raving about walking away from gp, HRC spend x amounts of millions to develop there ECU not the cost to develop the bike. It's time motogp level the playing field, but factory teams will always want to stay ahead. Where do you the draw the line !!!

MotoGP » Honda would 'stop' if software is controlled

@Truefan At the end of the day, manufacturers want to develop their control algoritms, traction control, anti wheelying and all the differentbits and pieces that goes on inside the ECU. I'm all for a control ECU, control tyres, it doesn't matter how much fuel you have. It will remain all prototype regardless of the outcome and the decisions made. Honda and Yamaha need motogp not the other way round. All the teams in the paddocks should have the same level as the factory teams

MotoGP » Ducati switching to Open Class for MotoGP 2014?

@vilas46 The fact of the matter, weather it's factory or open, x-amount of fuel, controlled ECU or not. The ECU (engine mapping) describes the act of assigning values to the control tables in an ECU. In the past few bikes had fuel injection, hence why it was called ignition timing, as this was the first digitally controlled element of the making engine run. In all cases. the race tech engineer is simply telling the ECU what it should do and when. Days gone by, you could change the offset of the ignition to apply a blanket advance or retard, but that was it.
