    Steward's Comments:
    The AWD Evo has plenty of grip on these tires and the Reverse direction of SSR5 has a nice flow to it. This is a good one, have fun. :tup:

    • While Viewing Your Replay, Choose the "Live Timing Monitor" To View Your Sector Times
    • To post your T1 and T2 Splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    Sounds like fun. I think I've reached my full potential with the TZ2, so I'll be trying this one out today. :)

    On a side note, wasn't/isn't there some sort of bug with this car? I've never really driven one on tarmac, but I thought I read something a while ago about it wandering all over the road...

    The car does move from side to side on the straights, but it's not literally all over the road. It did it on Prologue also, may very well be an actual trait related to the AWD system.

    It does have an odd side to side sway at speed, which I guess is related to its Active Yaw Control.

    Suffers with understeer, but nice combo.

    This. Some deadzone in Fanatec wheels should probably help with that, not sure if it would be a detriment to steering feel in corners though.

    Took a break but started missing this place :dopey:

    Looks like a nice combo to get back into WRS, I like the Special Stage reverse.

    Does anyone know why the dead zone is so huge in the DFGT wheel in GT5 when it doesn't realy exist when I'm using it on i-Racing? I just know that my times here would be better if it was less.

    Oops sorry, I was just expressing my joy at this choice of combo, now I see your post :dunce: If it's any consolation for the future, I don't know a thing about wheels :lol:

    Didn't notice any sway at any speed using DS3.
    Easy solid first run to open my account :)

    I get slight sway in ALL cars with my CSR, have the deadzone and linearity set on 10 (lowest setting but enough to dampen it)

    I like SSR5 but am usually bad with AWD, so will be interesting :)

    Great one Kevin! this is what you can call Underground Street Racing ;)
    Also do you consider I should drop division since I can't drive with a wheel yet? I'll do my best this week but if the maths says so, feel free to adjust my division :).

    We'll need at least a couple weeks of wheel running to make that decision.

    But honestly, you should be faster than your old self within 4 weeks or so anyhow.

    Congratulations on your wheel purchase. You'll never look back. :tup:

    Interesting combo. Had to turn up the screen brightness in-game and on my TV set so I could see most of the corners. Here are the splits from my first clean lap (took about 5 laps to start learning the track).

    T1: 30.994
    T2: 30.401

    Thanks!
    Sure I can't look back! If only I could influence you about the use of clutch ;)
    It feels funny to use the stick without clutch (I drive manual in real life) and those paddles feel even funnier but I'm getting used to them!

    Ps. No need to reply but I know when the "math" say so you will make a "clutch users" category! I'm astonised on how well you put statistical tools in use which I have only heard of theoretical.

    Yeah, they took it too far with the night action on GT5. Used to actually be able to see where you were going at this track on GT4, now you have to resort to those measures. :mad:

    I've actually raced at night, with no track lights. And I can tell you, it's nothing like this.

    If the headlights lit the environment properly it wouldn't be an issue in GT5.

    I decide to take a break from WRS to recharge my mojo and Kevin wheels out an Evo (...with a footnote to the effect that the Mitsubishi Evolution had been my most favouritest car since the IV came out..) Not sure how much time I'll have to put in to this one but my first hour was great fun. Not run this track much (for the reasons above re - visibility) but it does have a nice flow with the Evo on these tyres. :tup:

    Yeah I keep waiting for that hammer to fall... :p Mercifully still dangling just over my head with a post-it note on saying "Paint the stairs". Nice opening splits for the evening though Jerry, you just take it easy for the rest of the week :sly:

    Anyway, my first hour of paint scraping:

    A few more laps improved times and I'm remembering why I do not drive this car much. I am getting oversteer into corners and understeer through and out of corners where I prefer oversteer, oversteer and a bit more oversteer :)

    Sweet, particularly sector 2 :tup:

    Day off with a stomach bug but thankfully it doesn't affect my driving, just need more frequent stops :sly:

    29.988
    27.979


    Lost a couple of tenths in sector 3 compared to my best. Not sure what the my limit is there yet but its easy to lose heaps of time through that last sector.

    Edit:

    29.935
    27.922

    Still losing time in sector 3, almost at my limit in the first 2.

    Just a quick afternoon sesh, I knew there was some more time available, there still is in sector one I feel.

    What I've found its so imperative to get the front wheels straight as quickly as possible in this car and particularly on this circuit, so the theory slow in fast out certainly comes to the front with this combo

    A few more runs, am I the only driver with a loose front down the first strait? My car weaves L/R with about a 1/8th G each way.
