Default And you are gonna call NASCAR boring?

Talk about Sleepers! Good lord. That was some pathetic racing. Let's see... On one channel I can watch v-8's run way over 9000 rpm's, and see a car win by 28/1000 of a second...



On the other, I can watch Matt "My Vagina Hurts" Mladin dominate an outclassed field. Twice.



Boy that's a tough call.



Now don't get me wrong. I have a hardon for GP like everyone else.

Default Re: AMA needs to reformat??

Am I the only one around who would love to see Team 667, or The Army of Darkness take that cry baby nancy boy Mladin and spank him like the school girl he fantasizes about being?

What happened to the CBR1000's? They were soooo fast and handled soooo well early in the season. The Honda riders were chuckling about how much better it is than the RC51. Well, c'mon boys, get those things moving!!!!!!!!!!!

Default Do I smell NASCAR??

So we might need rules that "GASP" NASCAR uses? They simply change the rules at will for parity. Simply allow all engine configurations and then use whatever means is necessary to speed up or slow down each until you reach parity. IRL did it. NASCAR does it. AMA needs to do it. Nobody likes to watch one guy win alone, and nobody wants to watch 20 of the same motorcycles racing every week. Drag racing found a way to being V-Twins to Top Fuel, and the AMA could do the same with Superbike. Flattrack has changed the rules over the last few years to bring in different engines and mfgs. Simply change the rules to make each engine configuration competitive, then tweak as necessary.

Its a shame but I think the AMA needs to do something to get a mix going. Weight penalties would help but would always be a sore point for the racers. Man, the b!tching after races would be great for this site.

Default Re: Fontana Superbike Results

What you are seeing here is the difference between reality and the typical Honda blowjob by the majority of the motorcycle press (MO excluded, which is part of the reason I visit this site). Honda Cyclist and the rest print nice things about Honda because they want to keep Honda's advertising $$ flowing in. Why do you think it's had two cover shots in the last two months for both Cycle World and Honda Cyclist and the other bikes have been lucky to get one?

Default well i may be completely wrong

but what else is new? In NASCAR there's some parity between manufacturers at least, a little balance of power. In AMA, it seems like Honda is 800 lb gorilla that gets what it wants. How else to explain the borification of Formula Xtreme? Shirley the AMA consulted ALL the OEMs before deiciding upon new FX rules, right? Right? I kind of doubt it judging from the field.

Let's all contribute to a MO entry. If we all kick in about $10K apiece, we should be able to build Sean a carbon-fiber 250-pound Buell with a turbo, which would give him a power to weight ratio almost as good as Duhamels... who'll write the first check?!

Default Re: Fontana Superbike Results

Also top speed does not equal fastest lap (I have no idea how Ebos' Ducati is fastest thing at Fontana...)

I was watching from the end of the banking at Fontana, you could see Mladin was faster through the chicane there than anybody.
