    This is what bothers me the most about the TTXGP, Azhar and all that rules wiki BS. Somebody just out of the blue decided to change a rule to exclude the reigning NA champion. What does that say to future competitors? Do well. Win. And we change rules and outlaw you. You think Yates was pissed? Maybe Lightning ain't real happy either. Just a guess.

    lugnut, lightning was going to make there bike lighter anyways, before the rule change. The rule tells them that they cant just sit back and bring the same bike they brought last year and expect to win. The only problem with the rule is that it makes it tougher on new teams that maybe didnt calculate this or that into their weight estimate. But the strength of electric motorcycles in the passion of the people building them. Ill tell you this no stinkin weight limit is going to stop these people from showing up with a bike. ie Lightning

    Its time to move past this rules yipyapping and f'in race some cool ****

    Bring it on! I'll plan on being at Infieon to help anyone there that needs it. I want to see a packed grid with bikes ready to make for some good racing.

    That is beside the point. I see the issue being about the integrity of the sanctioning body, its owner, motives and such things. And the message I see coming across is: If we can't beat you on the track, we'll beat you with the rule book.

    What point, your point or the point of the original discussion?

    Godwin's Law (lugnut Corollary): Within three posts of any topic, the discussion thread will involve unfair ruling practices of the TTXGP, specifically, weight regulations.

    You must be a riot at a party.

    oh crap, did I log in again? must. escape. black. hole.

    also the my thoughts are that lightning will most likely be using the same EV1 motor but with a beefed up controller to maybe run high current to get more torque out of it. I also think they may have decided a new case for the motor which helps it get lighter and smaller. They mostly will have a new chassis (old one was actually designed for land speed racing). This is all speculation and is the route I would go if i was them.

    You right :-) It was my point. I guess I really liked the old #80 yellow flying banana with Barnes atop getting faster every race. I hope they come back with something even more exciting and kick everybody's ass again this season.

    Nah. I'd be surprised if they used the same motor this year.
