Quote from: h106frp on June 19, 2020, 01:22:51 PMAfter a bit of reading that is apparently the perceived wisdom on chassis flex and why super stiff chassis is a bad idea for bikes, as you lean the bike over the 'bumps' still occur vertically but the suspension can only translate the vector of travel so the displacement is less than it would be for upright, as the displacement in the damper rod movement is less the damping contributed is equally less effective so we become dependant on the lost motion in the chassis construction to contribute some of the damping.This is absoluely true, even if it is probably worth to remember that the travel you get from a non-rigid chassis is way smaller than what you get from suspensions (so yeah, it helps a bit, but it's not something that can absorbe bumps). The thing I'm not convinced about is that it helps/solves the problem we have in GPB on turns with camber and slope changes. Or at, best, why it does it.

Not sure why Vini crusades against itBecause I have ridden plenty of bikes there that seemed to be good but then revealed themselves to be absolute shite on more technical tracks. Victoria lacks slow corners, bumps, quick direction changes and hard braking. You only have all those long corners where you basically have enough time to get any bike to turn nicely.
The track is simply not bike dependent at all, that's partially why real MotoGP races are always so exciting there.
- A fast straight
- Plenty of fast turns, including a high-speed direction change
- Sort of a hard braking
- Some not-so-fast turns
- Some bit of slope changes
So yeah, suggesting modders to stop testing their mods on Victoria is not a good idea in my book.
If you're suggesting for modders to also test on other tracks, then yes, that could be OK.
You should probably name the track you thinks are relevant.
