Drag racing is a reasonably simple case. The cars might be going fast, but the direction and speed is quite predictable. It's a completely different kettle of fist to motorbike road racing.

Sorry but as a one-time drag racer and circuit racer (on motorcycles) and veteran spectator at many years of motorcycle GPs., I can't agree with that.

Drag racers may only travel in one direction but the speed and behaviour of the vehicles is anything but predictable.

In fact, I'd go so far as to say that a motorcycle, heading into a corner is much more so. Particularly, if you know how to ride one and can understand what the rider's doing.

I have a Z6 and have found it to be no good at all for that. But it is individual.

It would seem so.

I have no problems at all, whereas you have loads.

The problem is with something called proprioception, the ability to predict location and movement. The EVF delay, which is unavoidable, interferes with the neural feedback loops on which this depends, and can make them completely unstable. Whether or not it does depends on the individual. That's why I hesitate to say that an EVF is fine or is no good, you can't predict for someone else. I suspect that the newer EVFs will shorten the delay to the point where it is outside the problem range for most people.

You see, I never see any EVF delay, or any of the other supposed issues.

Perhaps my erm, neural feedback loops are in better nick than yours . . .
