Mladin's poor start.

For those who watched the Superbike race this weekend (which I assume is most of you), did the botched start by Mladin look kinda weird, like it wasn't just a clumsy dump of the clutch? I was thinking that maybe Suzuki's traction control system is for exiting corners only, not for launching. If that is the case, then Matt must switch it on after the start launch. Assuming he did just that, then had to restart due to the red flag, perhaps he forgot to shut off the traction control. The traction control then screwed with his second launch. Just a theory that we are kicking around on another site. Wondering what others make of it.

If that's what happened, it wouldn't surprise me at all.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

He has had a problem with the clutch all year. He has problems with that clutch when he has to make a 2nd start like that.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
