    Driver's Meeting/Notes links:


    Eligibility for this 3D3 event will include GTP_Registered members plus referred drivers. A registry member can make a referral for this event by simply including other drivers PSN IDs with their own registration request in this thread. To guarantee eligibility for all 3D3 events run the GTP_Registry qualifier and join the registry now!

    Registration
    1. Reply to this thread and include in the text of the message your GTP_ PSN ID, the title of this event and which event (EU, NA or Both). To sign up (refer) a driver not on the GTP_Registry, a registered driver should include the PSN ID of the non registered driver(s) in their post.
    2. Send a PSN friend request to GTP_WRP001 and GTP_Hydro with subject line "3D3 Racing" if you haven't already done so. Any referred driver(s) will also need to submit a friend request.
    There is a 16 car/driver limit for this event and slots are awarded on the grid using a first come first serve basis. Reference the registered drivers list below for availability. This is a stand alone race and points are not tallied for a series. Future races hosted by 3D3 racing may have different driver limits and will require re-registration using the same first come first serve basis and participation in future events is optional.

    If for some reason, after you register for the event, you are unable to attend the race please send a PM to one of the 3D3 racing stewards or post in the thread so we can update the registration list and make the spot available to another driver.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:
    • Unless otherwise specific all rules from the original WRS event apply.
    • Please read, and familiarize yourself with the track boundary guidelines specified in the original WRS event.
    • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
    • 3D3 Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to boot or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are booted from the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future 3D3 events.
    • 2 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track

    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.
    If for some reason you are unable to finish the race and need to stop:
    • Pull the car over off the track next to a wall and as far from the driving line as possible
    • Press the E-Brake
    • Then press Start
    • This will ghost your car and it won't allow it to interfere with the other drivers.
    Overall winner will be sent a prize (to be announced at race time).

    Good Luck,

    Done. :tup: Will be a pleasure to race with you, we're so close on the leaderboard right now. I'm pretty sure I know a couple spots to shave time from still, though. :mischievous:

    Thanks for the awesome video, Speedy! :cheers:

    Oh good, I see I have a subscription now. No need for me to say I'm in for both events next week. :sly:
    You guys are starting to know me too well. :lol:

    EDIT: Come to think of it, I did mention it to Marc in the race last night (this morning).


    Thanks guys. Making the vids is a pleasure.
    Working on the NA one now. ;)

    In the EU race I was basically at the back sweeping the road clean and I saw lots of stuff lying around the road including doors and trunks. Seriously! :lol:

    Probably Speedy and Hydro trying to draw attention to themselves. They are so bad... first it's just the windshield wipers going all race long and now they resort to this. What's next? :sly:

    Yeah I noticed you shot up in front of me after that sneaky practice session in the NA lounge ;). I've submitted those splits but will probably have time for more running on Sunday and Monday night, I wouldn't want to give away too much now :p.

    :lol::lol::lol:
    I'm starting to try and use my flashlights in race. Forgot to do that in the one we just did, but if you see one in next weeks races... ;)

    BTW: Tim, I'm trying something to identify the drivers a bit in the vids I'm making of the 3D3 races. If you see something pop up in dropbox be sure to check it out and let me know what you think of it.

    Too bad the EU formation lap isn't in the vid, I laughed hard seeing Wes going straight up against the wall before the long left turn :lol:
    Didn't know what happened there.

    Wes, are you using a USB cable extension or a USB hub for your wheel connection? Used to happen to me and I had to remove those "middle men" and plug the wheel directly into the PS3. The USB hub works fine for other devices including mic, keyboard and recharging DS3, but the wheel just needs constant and uninterrupted channel to the ps3 so not a good idea for that input device to have anything between it and the PS3.


    @Speedy... great video work as always. :tup:

    No, I'm just using the regular USB cable. I may be able to explain one issue and that's when the wheel input suddenly 'switches' to DS3 input and then I can hear and see the DS3 rumbling. But I have driven without 'turning on' the DS3 and I still get problems with the wheel input.

    I have a special request for assistance from the 3D3 Registry drivers and/or any interested WRS drivers. Note: Volunteering to help would also be something that will be fun for participants as well.

    GTP_Hydro (Marc) and I are taking part (and in fact have organized via 3D3 Racing) a challenge event on GTPlanet called GTP Inter-League SuperGT GT500 Challenge that's going to take place on December 3, 2011. See the thread for details, but it's getting a lot of interest.

    I don't want to hijack this thread and it's focus so I've started a new thread in the interest checks forum which will focus on our preparation events to which YOU are invited. Please see the other thread for details and if you are interested post/subscribe to that thread.

    Thanks!

    What kind of online lap times were you guys running? I ran a 1'27.9XX as my best tonight in a short practice session with Dragon, Ealirendur and Allibubba. I was losing tons on the 3rd sector. My line is weak through there.

    It could be a faulty wheel of course, but check everything about the USB connection you can. Loose connection on either end. Crimp in the cable somewhere. Try a different USB port on the PS3. I'm 99% sure it has nothing to do with the DS3. The PS3 is just losing contact with the wheel. When it happened to me all feedback was lost from the wheel... it went limp completely... and it would return shortly when communication was restored and work again, but sometimes it would come back off center until it re-calibrated. If that sounds like your symptoms it's the usb connection or something faulty related to the communication between the input device and your PS3. I was on the phone with Thrustmaster describing the problem and they wouldn't talk about anything else and they turned out to be right.

    Funny thing was the first time it happened was when I landed a "big" jump on Cape Ring with a Lambo. It felt like it really broke the steering column in the car which i thought was part of the sophisticated feedback of GT5/T500RS, but it was really the vibration created by the feedback from the "hit" knocking the usb connection loose between the extension cable I was using and the normal cable attached to the wheel. I was on the phone telling Thrustmaster that Cape Ring broke my wheel. :lol: (Well I exaggerate a little :dunce:)

    My best with a full fueltank was 27.4xx.
    3/4 of a fueltank and I made one .090

    I think Wes was the one who did an 26.2 :crazy:
