Ok, on the starting grid and waiting for the lights to finally go out, like in the real moto gp you would have a launch control method where as you twist that throttle then just bang it into gear, is it the same for gpbikes. I do believe reading something about beta 4 having realistic race starts implemented into the race procedure?

Is it still the case of feathering the clutch with the throttle?

Yes. No launch control yet.

+1 Max! ;D

They have taken a lot of the rider skills away from modern MotoGP, just like they used to in the bad days of F1 when virtually anyone in a good car who could operate a throttle could win a race. :P

Don't worry about looking like a noob, Toomes, I'm well off the pace for tonights race; I'm sure we and others will have a nice race between us while the fast guys battle it out in front. Lol ;D
