Default NASCAR vs F1

It was just a matter of time. I can see traction control along with braking software etc... making it into MotoGP and WSBK unless they regulate it out. Hey it's an fly by soon to be drive by wire world get used to it.. Traditionalist will cry foul but do you want Nascar type rules where the cars and technology have been frozen in time or do you want Formula One where technology rules??? If you are traditionalist maybe a Sportster series can be formed...

If they do they should be reminded that no longer does the rider have to advance the spark manually or shift by hand.

Maybe traction control doesn't make so much sense for the track but I'm not here to argue about that. What I say is that it's needed on the street.



For myself I'd love to have it when it gets wet out there.

Have we forgotten so soon Flammini's rationale for going to a single tire manufacturer and construction in this production based class?



Prototype racing seems a more appropriate place for secret traction control than WSBK.

Ducati's already announced that they're going to have traction control on street bikes, I would expect in on the updated 999 next year.

Traction control? V-twins have always had superior traction when accelerating, particularly when the bike is still leaned over coming out of a curve. It's a characteristic granted them by the motorcycle gods when they were first created. V-twin powered motorcycles are also lightweight and simple to work on. Does everyone still believe in Santa Claus? Due to all the inherent advantages, I expect the RC51 will once again be the motorcycle of choice for most privateers in AMA Superstock this year.
