All I know after a lifetime of cheap tyres is that I immensely prefer a fresh set of Starcross 5's front and rear. They're cheap enough I don't think it's worth worrying about.

Anderson was the best choice, unfortunate how things played out.

Yeah I was shocked when I saw the photo of the commentary booth, they might as well have watched it on their phones. I thought they would have a huge main monitor and multiple others with extra feeds so they can see lots of what's happening...

lol I never said the WSX is the true global championship, I said they're just two entities in a pissing contest and neither of them are a true global series. Shouldn't be a controversial opinion.

There are countless examples of MLB teams losing to Japanese teams. I guarantee you that if Japan was allowed to enter a team or two in the MLB and concentrated their talent they would be competitive. I also seem to remember the Lakers while they were ... more »

Just two organisations in a pissing contest. Neither of them are true global championships. I've always had a chuckle at Americans with their "World" series/championships etc in various sports like MLB, NFL. Ridiculous, you can't have a world championship ... more »

I watch on a 150" projector, and I can't even see who's battling most of the time. I can't imagine what you're able to see on a smaller screen... I have to say I find it amusing that every now and then you can hear the commentary team has no idea either ... more »

I'm not very familiar with the US terrestrial landscape so will defer to you, but I feel there must be a nationwide syndicate that would want the broadcast only rights. Another thought is that from the numbers I've seen I reckon MX sports could bring ... more »

Added a comment about video Davey Coombs on the MAVTV+ Failure, Streaming Challenges, the Move to FloRacing, and How We Got Here 7/8/2022 3:08 AM

I don't think DC has his finger on the pulse as much as he thinks he does when he says there's no problem with the production, only with MavTV+. There have been many issues with the production side as well like the ad breaks, overlays, course previews and legend stats during races. Not to mention the tiny battle box where I struggle to see who's who even on my 150 inch screen, and the endless cutting away from battles. Granted MavTV+ was an utter shitshow, but lets not pretend the rest is all sunshine and rainbows.

It also seems strange that DC wouldn't have the streaming numbers. How is he selling this product to broadcasters without it? Maybe he'd be surprised to know how high they are? We live in a streaming world now, and MXsports could take a page from F1's playbook and really focus on international streaming. It sounds like Davey really wants a terrestrial broadcaster for the US, maybe it's time to split the package between terrestrial and streaming with the rights available separately. Maybe that would solve the issue.

Currently on a 2020 KX450. As a slightly taller than average rider it just feels so much better than everything else I've tried. I would explain it as other bikes feel like you're sitting on them, the KX feels like you're sitting in it. Much better. ... more »

That render shows 19 rows of 10 cells, and is only half of the total battery pack (see pic below). Should be around 380 cells total which seems right as I had independently calculated around 390-400 depending on what they use.

I'm not an expert, but have a bit of exposure to this stuff through electric skateboarding. I would hazard a guess and say they are using 21700 size cells. Probably in the region of 400 cells total to get 6kwh. Take a cell that would perform well in ... more »

It uses Lithium Ion cells which are vastly better than LiPo in those areas. We should expect 1000+ charge cycles easily enough. The replacement cost will be high, but I imagine 3rd party custom options will abound, and with the way battery tech is improving ... more »

And now it's cut out twice in the second 450 moto. Have probably missed nearly 10 mins now. This isn't acceptable.

Added reply in a thread Kudos MAVTV 6/4/2022 3:43 PM

Can't say I'm happy with cut-away ads with 4 minutes left in a moto and a battle happening. Definitely a few improvements, but a lot of room still to grow.
