Their approach to development is very unscientific which shows just how lost they are.

Also, trying to develop the in house WP suspension must be a major cause of headaches. If they were to use Ohlins like the rest of the grid that would be one thing they could tick off the list but obviously they can't do that.

Are you familiar with the Patent process? I'm pretty sure it exist in Brazil


Like I said HRC innovate while others apply band aid.
I wasn't wanting to engage in technical merits, whatever. The term "clutch" was employed for reference only.

Yes in Brazil we have patents. Also, in Brazil we don't speak spanish, our capital is not Buenos Aires (that's the capital of Argentina) and we are not Indians. We don't live inside jungle too. We actually study, and we vote for right-wing politicians. You don't need to imagine myself as a dumb monkey eater that lives naked besides some river dancing carnival musics.

Thank you for your time.

Yes definitely a draw back! I forgot all about that part.

And you guy's have the largest African population outside of Africa. Pioneer of ethanol fuel & major exporter of sugar, along with some incredible sexy women. So yeah I know it's not a jungle contrary to some beliefs.

But, a clutch is a mechanism for connecting and disconnecting the transfer of power between the engine & the transmission.

If they want to ban aerodynamic aids they should ban them. I thought the ostensible reason they banned the Ducati wing was safety though, that the wings might injure riders in a crash. This new device doesn’t seem to have any safety issues. I too don’t want to see any Ducati superbirds though.

The main issue is that FIM/Dorna have not written the rules explicitly enough. An F1 rulebook is 10 times th thickness of a MotoGP one from my understanding. It's a by-product of making the sport so close and competitive. Manufacturers are looking at anything they can to get an advantage and it's the responsibility of the governing body if they don't want loopholes to be exploited as you have said.

In domestic series I race in it has this this simple line/rule, which is:

"Unless the rulebook states specifically that you can do it, then you CANNOT!"

KTM need to hire smarter engineers so they then have the problem of other teams jealously trying to prevent them from gaining an advantage. Bringing 16 new chassis and 20 swingarms to race weekends just proves how inefficient they are. Ducati identify a problem and produce one or two innovative solutions and test them with a thorough program. That is how to go racing
.

While I agree, their situation now is reminiscent of Ducati in 2011/12. They were far from identifying a problem and producing innovative solutions in those days and in fact were just like KTM are now; throwing multiple chassis at the bike (trellis, CF, Aluminium twin spar) to the point they were on GP11/12.9999999999. I remember them even zip tie-ing tungsten rods to the rad mounts on Stoners GP10 to change the weight distribution.

KTM will get there, it will just take time.

I hope you are right. But using Ducati as a reference would suggest KTM need a complete change of philosophy, ditching the trellis and outsourcing the chassis build. Whether they would do this or not is a different matter.

Developing their own suspension is another layer of developmental complexity they just don't need, but again whether KTM would be willing to throw their own brand under the bus is doubtful.

One thing I will add however, is that KTM I would say are quite arrogant judging by some of the things they have said of the other manufacturers and how quickly they expect to beat Honda. I predict a few more years of hardship will dispel them of this cockiness and will either humble them, or see them leave the championship.

yes gui22, you are one of these descents of white people who spoiled south america. You have done a very good work of decimating the indians and keeping them poor.

Nothing to be proud about, puto.

One of these brazilian that think his shits smell better than others'.

Fuck you
