no.. because the fact of the matter is, the AMA is caught with their pants down. there is no way to police the traction control issue at this point.. they throw this out there and hope to christ that the AMA teams revoke their current systems trying to stay under the radar. it makes the teams self-policing because the AMA cant.ZXTOM said:Well thats good that they are telling the whole world what they (AMA) plan to do ....
Would'nt it be make more sence to not tell anyone so the superbike teams dont have time to fix it.....

Superbikeplanet said:AMA PRO RACING STATEMENT REGARDING TRACTION CONTROL
PICKERINGTON, Ohio (May 31, 2006) -- The following information is in response to recent media reports regarding the status of traction control rules in AMA Superbike
AMA Pro Racing remains committed to the enforcement of all rules specified in the AMA Superbike Championship Rulebook.
As stated on page 36 of the 2006 rulebook, Telemetry and Traction Control are prohibited (Section E, General Equipment Standards, subsection 23). AMA Pro Racing technical staff will continue to perform routine pre- and post-race technical inspection of selected equipment. Any machine suspected of utilizing prohibited traction control devices is subject to impounding for further technical evaluation at AMA headquarters (Section C, Equipment Offenses and Penalties, subsection 2, page 61.)
AMA Pro Racing also remains committed to the proactive governance of new and emerging technology as it relates to its racing disciplines. The newly formed AMA Racing Standing Committee will evaluate such technology on an ongoing basis and provide strategic counsel to the AMA Board of Directors. Additionally, as part of AMA Pro Racing's new rulesmaking procedures announced in February, all new rules and changes to existing rules will be scrutinized by discipline-specific rulesmaking committees before being forwarded to the AMA Board of Directors for ratification. Any changes to traction control regulations fall under this procedure.
