    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    First, huge thanks and congratulations to the stewards for a very thoroughly organized and well run race. It was a lot of fun. I don't have much of a race report, as I was disconnected about 20 minutes after my driver change, and don't have a replay to pore over to relive the fun. I was...

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    DC'ed after 1h35 or so. Bummer. Not that I was in contention for anything, but I was much more consistent than in the support race.

    Thanks for the feedback, WRP. I have definitely noticed that I hit a plateau quickly in the offline TTs. And also that racing online teaches me to pay attention to the ever-changing feel of the tires, rather than just trying to consistently hit the same line. But I hadn't thought of putting...

    GTP WRS Comprehensive Guide

    Excellent, thanks for posting that link. I had been wondering how the handicaps were calculated. Another thing I've been wondering: are there ever demotions? I qualified as Div 4, but have been solidly Div 5 in my first few time trials. Hopefully I'll do well enough to turn the average...

    Thanks, Jack. Good advice. I'm sure it will come with practice. At least with few other D4s submitting I can get a division podium and a DFL in the same race...

    GTP WRS-Online : Event 28 : Snake in the Road - Mar 21

    How does qualifying work? I checked the OP, but I don't quite understand. Does "live online, single stint" mean a one-lap qualifying race?

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    Thanks. No rush... there's not much "give" available on the 9:00 end after all. TV conflict until then. I'll be there as soon as I can. If you can't hang out that long, no worries.

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    Any stewards available around 9-10 pm Eastern (0100 to 0200 GMT) for a GT qualifying run? Give or take a half an hour. I could use more practice, but it's probably better to avoid the Thursday rush.

    GTP WRS-Online : Event 28 : Snake in the Road - Mar 21

    Speaking of switching the lounges around... what's the etiquette on non-admins changing the settings? I was in there last night and the course was set up for Spa (which I wanted), but tire wear was off. I wasn't sure if it was kosher to tinker.

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    Yes to tire wear & fuel, and I finished the races to the results screen. No big deal, though. It's not like I didn't need the practice. And Bob is even more novice than I am, so he's grateful for the ride.

    GTP_WRS (GT5) Week 57 : Dual Indy Duel

    Thanks a lot for the encouragement, guys. I'll definitely be at more of the online races. I missed last week only because I was out of town. I'll study & chase some replays and hopefully get fast enough to hang with you, Allibubba.

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    I just ran four 3-lap races by myself in my lounge, but the car still has zero miles. 🤨 Just started a B-spec race, but my GTP account is level 0, of course. (I know I could gift the car to my main account and back. But I've got to level up the B-spec GTP account sooner or later.)

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    Even practice races in the lounge don't put real miles on, it looks like. I guess B-spec it is.

    GTP WRS-Online : Special Event III - Spa Mixed Class Enduro - Mar 25

    I've been doing my laps in free run in my private lounge, assuming that was putting miles on it... oops! I just checked and it's still showroom fresh.

    GTP_WRS (GT5) Week 57 : Dual Indy Duel

    Okay, I'm hopeless. I knew my times at the start of the week were lame, but now I have put some time in and I'm still in the basement. My times are slowly improving on the road coarse, and I can see where I need to improve there. But on the oval I must be approaching it all wrong. I...

    GTP_WRS (GT5) Week 57 : Dual Indy Duel

    Couldn't resist trying a few laps before leaving town for a week: 56.038 25.649 24.039 Was tinkering with brake balance, but I think these were set with 2/7 on the oval and 2/8 on the road course.

    GTP_WRS (GT5) Week 56 : MR2 the Max

    Now that I have the right car, here are my first set of splits: T1: 25.245 T2: 30.845 Not terribly happy with them, but I may not have time to do any more.
