Malaysian GP..........

FP3 and things are lookng pretty iteresting. Nicky in 15th......ouch. Nakano has crashed twice already, and everyone is talking about the inconsistent grip of the newly resurfaced circuit. Some intersting onboard shots show the slippery loud and clear, don't be surprised by a crash fest. Stoner on top and Hopper, Depuniet both hot on his heels. 4.3 seconds covers the whole feild. Should be a barn burner tomorrow. Oh ......and Rossi/Colin got new tail sections on the M1....looks the sickness, short like the Hondas, more pointed. Yamaha taking styling cues from Honda? That's a first.

They've done a lot better lately. Hopefully Hopkins will be able to get the ZX-RR sorted to his liking. I'd LOVE to see him finish in the top 3 next year.



Hopefully the race will be exciting to watch, though sadly I'll probably be watching to see who finishes second.:/:

Yeah, they mentioned that at the last round. Last night they revealed that they were using a newer chassis for Friday's practice. I guess it was no bueno. They switched back to the old chassis for Saturday practice/qualifying.

Yamaha is still running the pneumatic valve engine if the is what you were refering to Hyper. Same motor that gave Rossi the DNF two races ago, but last race it seemed to work well enough for third. I'm thinking with the inconsistent grip, Rossi will pull one out of his ..........and I see a Kawi on the podium this round, maybe Ant West??

Pretty close there with the Kawi. The pneumatic valve engine is the new one isn't it?

I ask that cause from what I was hearing....everybody said they went back to their old stuff. I hope next near they can sort out the kinks. Hopefully they can give him something more reliable through the season. That goes for tires too.

yes, the pneumatic engine is the new one. Yes, they stopped using it 2 races ago. Buck must have missed that interview.
