Quote from: Myst1cPrun3 on January 13, 2020, 09:56:00 pmSo I came across this link that f1s new engine format could be a revival of ye olde 2 smokers with alternate fuels and so on, and apparently MotoGP have been looking at similar options.I think this could be a step backwards, due to emissions and so on. I actually believe diesel would be a better alternative for Grand Prix, a more forward looking option. (No electricity as motoe exists)But still here's the link, any thoughts. I know what @Hawk is going to say before he even replies,but still.. https://www.visordown.com/news/racing/motogp/could-motogp-return-two-stroke-engine-formula

That's a given

Quote from: Docfumi on January 15, 2020, 10:26:15 amI think all the rider aids are hurting the sport a bit because now it's like watching arcade racing when we all want to see REAL racing. I mean think about it, as far as MotoGP goes we see a lot fewer high-sides and a lot less tank slappers which are a true thing of the past, and I feel these are good things but it makes racing look boring to the point I have to think why even have gears, oh wait! MotoE is here already. I want to see guys work the bike around the track for 26 laps, I want to see riders come from nine seconds back and win the race (not just Marquez). It was nice to see Fabio20 fight up the front but much like Zarco5 he could not get the job done and I started thinking this is really BS! Everyone is screaming that the ECU and other rider aids are killing the sport. I think it all comes down to the tyres and how good you set your bike up around them. Sure some bikes work better than others depending on the track and even the rider sometimes but most of it is that all bikes are on tyres and they only have two days to test them before the race, for F*ck sake every weekend a new compound. Again I call BULLSH*T! It's one thing to make a sport safe and another thing to castrate it.
Quote from: Manu on January 15, 2020, 09:55:29 amMaybe someone may think that the TC or AW are safety elements but the reality is different. They are electronic aids for the rider. In the modern era of motogp engine power is such that it would be impossible to drive the bike. These aids were designed to control all that power in some way and not destroy the tires in the first lap.So what would be the point of riding a bike that cannot be driven?
