Default Re: Ducati announces 989 cc V-Four MotoGP bike

Don't you think that Honda with close to 20 years working with V4s in one way or another would have tried to screw with the firing order?

Default Ain't no WAY!!!!

That makes no sense because the piston would have to be damn near, or at the top of the cylinder (after the gas/fuel has been compressed) to be fired, and that's because of the crank design. They could all be fired seperately with the same crank since it's a four stroke but never be switched up fast like that (1+2 3+4 or 1+4 2+3) unless the crank had some amazing new design. The only case in which you could do that and get away with it would be a 180 degree engine (Boxer). Use a system like AUTOCAD and you will see.

Gary McCoy said that his sliding style is no harder on tires than other riders' smoother style. Apparently, this is because when a tyre is sliding, there is less work for the tyre to perform. When a tyre grips, there is much more strain on the tire, and it builds heat more quickly.

Hey,



Does anybody know how is the firing order of Valentino's 2002 V-5?

Depends how the bike is set up and how much you have to spin the tire to get the bike to turn more. Too much and the tire is gone. Perfect example Nicky Hayden two years ago at Colorado. Burn the tire down to the belt.

You gotta keep away from the computer when you smoke crack. It makes you do crazy things. That's how you end up on email lists, messing around with crack.

I don't know the degree of the firing but it was said early on that it is 180 degree front three then rear 2 or something like that.

Default You really got it all WRONG

Whatever man. Yamaha quit WSB, which they almost won the year before, had Haga not got in trouble (with the supplement) and crashed once or twice. Kawasaki has not had an updated Bike in WSB (even though the Kawasaki's and the rest of the fours slaughtered the twins at SUGO)THe Japanese RR champ and the AMA champ were both on Suzuki's. Eric Bostrom was in second place in AMA with doug C in fourth. You could say Nicky had problems year round but look at the rest of the twin riders, they did no better. There are riders that can win on any bike. Had the Corona Suzuki team offered Gobert more than USA Yamaha, they would have been up front again. The best teams have the best riders. THe twins are up front because they have the best riders. Who are riding fours in WSB that is name brand? Chili's riding style never really suited a four but he still won races. Haga had less power than the Suzuki and the Twins but he still almost won the crown. The R7 won the championship in it's first year in Japan also, and it's not a twin. That argument holds no water.

Default Re: Track techniques site WANTED?

Have you seen the TrackDOD site?



http://www.trackdod.org/



I've never done the track thing, but I think Martyn Wheeler's Novice Guide is at least as useful as the Keith Code books.
