Bug Reports / Re: Start sequence disqualify

+1 one this, happens all the time to most I've seen on the start gate. Even holding both brakes on last night I got DQ =/ and that was try 3 as others had been DQ before that. Getting to start a race start is a lottery right now it seems.

General Discussion / Re: Gyro effect and counter-steering

Opposite lock is in GPbikes too, when people back it in on the brakes the rider automatically keeps the front wheel tracking the direction of movement. While this happens the steering in relation to the vehicle is opposite to the turn in question. Speedway being the best example as they actually turn left in all right turns and vice versa, not just on turn in (i'm sure using counter steering too) but the whole way round, sometimes at full lock!
This type of control should still be possible either way with the correct forces being exerted by the rear tyres grip while sliding and I think this is where MXbikes suffers. This is also forward grip not just side grip, balanced by the throttle input and lean during turns.

I'm pretty sure this is what's called "opposite lock" the same thing used in car drifting and speeway to hold the car or bike in a semi spin while the back end slides.

MX bikes is doing opposite lock now, but the grip levels once it starts to slide seem too low and should be way more progressive to allow some control. Currently It's similar when i've been tight and really pushed my MX tyres beyond the limit (worn the nobblies way down), they spin up real easy and when cornering I have to be real careful not to loose the rear end.

This video shows the rider doing opposite lock automatically, so it's in there but not very controllable..... yet.

Still damn good fun though.

I still wonder if MX bikes would benefit from separate lean and steer inputs instead of the auto counter steer setup. IMO an MX bike is more like a jet ski than a road bike, with the front wheel being like a rudder.

Bug Reports / Auto shift down locking rear wheel..
November 25, 2014, 03:23:09 PM
Playing beta2 last night with auto shifting on and braking where I had been in B1, I got what seemed to be lots of rear wheel lockups causing me to low side. I thought it was my new brake pressure but lowering it loads didn't help. Cured it by going to manual gears, now corner entry speed is way better and no rear locking every time I use big brakes from high speed.

Seemed to me 1st gear was being selected too early by the auto shift, is it just me??

I had, as in B1, been changing my gearing down to a top end of about 122kmh if that makes any difference. I did notice the stock gearing and range has changed (ignore this I was remembering the 250 gearing).

Day 1 (for me) and I got a slide  :) maybe we'll see more of this beta 2. So far still much easier on the real thing.

+1 on the in air brake and throttle effects they're too weak, although unlike you I can't notice anything when braking in the air but do notice some effect with the throttle on?

Got a rear end slide that I didn't actually fall after doing :D this should not be so rare IMO or is everyone else doing them all the time?
