@ Lance This is a production based series & Ducati dont make production 4's. Neither do some other manufacturers. The rules havent been MODIFIED to allow DUCATI to compete, they have been CREATED to allow different manufacturers with different design philosophies to all compete on an equal footing. That is why, in the last few years we have seen V-Twins, Inline 4's, V-4's, crossplane big bang 4's all winning / scoring poles / winning championships. The ballast weight / restrictor system is merely to fine tune those rules to ensure racing is competitive & prevent over-engineered 'cheat' bikes (aka 999 / RC45 / R7). & it works. Look at the past few seasons. Consider this - if Ducati have the advantage you & others claim, the other competitors would be the 1st ones complaining. However, being the experts & understanding the equalization formula you obviously dont ... they arent complaining at all.
