PRE-traction control! (pre 990 too)

When the racer had something to REALLY fear from opening the throttle too soon!



I'm not saying bring back two strokes, this is just an extreme example of what racing used to mean and why it was so respected to be a racer. I still respect the GP racers of today.

The interviews in the first Faster movie about the 500cc bikes are just awesome! The racers talking about them had real respect for the bikes.

No more traction control! No more traction control!! (can we get a smiley made?)

1:39- 1:40, but I heard Nicky said that he was in the 38's with race rubber during testing a couple months ago...

That's what I would think too, but something stuck in my mind after watching one of his interviews and I could have sworn he said it was on race rubber :dontknow:

I'm going to be very surprised if Lorenzo doesn't win. He was in the 1:40's most of FP3 with the other fastest riders consistently running low 1:41's.

I bet Geezer's third cousin from another mother, Valentino is starting to wish he stayed with Mich.
