Here's a shot from the WSBK round at Brands Hatch last August...
1648
I wonder how hot the exhaust really gets? No wonder Troy is soooo hard to pass...

That is an incredible picture, Ric!

I'd hate be right behind him :scared10:

Is that the anti-pass secret Ducati ECU program? :rolleyes:

Doesn't look like the Euro 3-compliant engine management system there....:cool2:

Looks like the mixture is running a tad rich...

Well, off to eastern WA now. Have fun karting, guys!

Sorry, no hi rez image available, I found that pic in another forum...
I had read that part of the tuning on the WSBK engine is a bit of fuel is dumped in the injectors on overrun, the prevent wheel hop on downshifts... an electronic form of 'slipper clutch', but without the slip... and it makes a really 'hot' picture.

Was Troy using engine braking?

If I could only tune my monster to do that... oh well, at least I have a car that does it (great for tailgaters and people who pull up waaay too close at stop lights!)
