Started new thread Plessinger on the wrong team? 8/13/2016 4:37 AM

So on MX Nation Ep 6, Gareth Swanepoel said how he and the team manager Bobby Regan look for riders who hate losing. See from about 8:10. On the other hand AP is a laid back guy who clearly doesn't fit this mold, but is still blindly quick at time - ... more »

Also, the swing arm is shorter, and the main frame longer? Is the wheelbase the same? And why the change? On a side note, there is no way the swing arm is laterally stiffer with the change in design they have made. Unless they publish like for like FEA ... more »

Shows a shorter shock, but there is some dead space in most shocks. Did they use that up, or have to shorten the body or stroke?

And more importantly, if the shock is smaller, have they kept the oil volume (and stroke) the same, or is the shock performance going to suffer from the lower shock mounting change? Not that Honda would admit to the latter, but some info would inform ... more »

Ok, so this new event turns up with some interesting dimensions. What are the comments and predictions on any of the following: 1. Is the race too much / important / will it be taken seriously and repeat. 2. How will the builders put the track together ... more »

This. The silica causing issues for sand blasters will be in small fragments - probably well under 50 microns. Particles you can not even see. Mx bikes dont grind up sand like sand blasting does. i am not an expert, but from what i have heard the fine ... more »

Added reply in a thread 47 points / 6 = 7.8 races for Tomac to catch Roczen 7/10/2016 4:34 AM

Tomac needs someone to get between him and Kroc. Not many who can do that and none of them are racing at the moment... Or maybe a mud race with some luck going Tomac's way.

Started new thread Mcelrath End of Moto 2 crash 7/10/2016 3:45 AM

Anyone know if Shane is ok. Pretty bad crash - mainly because the subframe of his bike pounded into his torso. I hope he didn't end up with internal bleeding or something.

Added a comment about video Chad Reed in Europe - RAW 6/16/2016 3:10 AM

Any time on the bike is good. And this would suit a guy who hasn't ridden much MX for a while. Might have been shot weeks ago??? But far from ideal if you are wanting to be up the front come race day.

Yeah, it sounds right, but... DC confirmed he did not take any cards, so it has at least one major lie in it. Also, for a witness, how do they know the full story. For example did the guy follow the issue to both entrances to catch all the events... ... more »

I noticed this during the race and strongly disagree. This is what I thought at the time: The lap before, Trey set up the pass in the same corner by going inside. Jason was trying to go inside on this lap so as to protect the inside. And also so he wasn't ... more »

All this suggests is that the guy probably sorted himself out a long time ago. Doesnt mean anything good or bad relevant to today.

I am sure this data would be useful when making changes between races. On a related note, the little tube and the volume added at the other end where the sensor is will actually slightly change the performance of the fork. Depending on what is at the ... more »

Absolutely. Behaviour like this needs to be confronted and exposed. Arguably more could be done.
