We talked about this and the idea was to make the engine inexpensively enough that you could afford it to be claimed every weekend. It's one advantage Chris has over Honda - he has little overhead and is willing to live on Ramen to see this project through.
Wow, Chris, those rules are amazing! If they stay in place Moto 2 would become the most interesting series in the world. It would be like the glory days of Bears with the Britten. The series needs it (and your bike) to shake it up. Hell, with real prototypes I'd rather watch that than MotoGP!
