    Hello! Welcome to Gran Turismo Duel of the Week! This is a thread concept started by @Cowboy all the way back around the start of GT6. Over the years, control eventually found it's way to me and we're now in our third edition. This is the first time we're jumping to another game, so it'll be a learning experience for now. GT Sport is the next chapter of the series and we're just about ready to get started after GT6's servers shut down and all of these GT Sport content updates! If you're reading this as a new contributor, or if you're a regular needing to brush up on some info, this info below will give you the rundown on how this thread works.

    At the beginning of every week, (Mondays usually, but sometimes Wednesdays if I'm busy) two or more cars are chosen in a new post to go head to head in the game. It isn't a usual competition though, the winner of each week is decided by your votes. Now, how you vote varies from person to person. It can either be which car is more competitive in sport mode, which one has the faster time in the weekly time trials, which one sounds or looks better and much more.

    At the end of each week, votes are counted up, just make your vote is easy to read, and be sure to explain your reasoning too.

    If you're wondering what we mean by time trials, every week my good compatriot and thread co-host @ThrasherDBS hosts time trials and drift trials for the cars featured in the duel, sometimes maybe even a special challenge or two. (You'll just have to see what he cooks up in the oven!) After the week concludes, he will post the results of the time trials and tag everyone who participated.

    So, welcome to Gran Turismo Sport Duel of the Week! If you're still unsure of what to post, just float around for a week or two and observe what the regulars do and post, you'll get up to speed eventually!

    This thread may not look like much now, but we've just started construction. Pretty soon this thread will be on par with GT6's thread

    Evo. I have just felt that the evo appeals more than the subaru has. I do love a subaru but my vote goes to the evo. Evo is also my go to car for gts.

    I'll hold onto that for now, but the thread hasn't even started yet. :lol: At least it seems like people are eager to get going! The duels start on Monday if you're wondering. This thread and the last thread both had Week #0 reserved for planning.

    Count me in. I've chipped off a lot of school work and I've been meaning to invest more time behind the wheel.

    See you Monday, waffle man.

    Already starting to see some regular members here and new ones. It was nice that I found the time to do the last duel on GT6. I've been spending most of my time lately on GTS and in the short time I've been playing I have already logged in over 21 thousand miles.

    I've definitely driven both cars and I think I know which one is going to be my winner but I will put them up against each other just to make sure.

    Any certain track you want us to do the duel on?

    I did this dual already at the park, with the Evo edging out the Subaru. I'll post times later tonight.

    Have been looking forward to seeing this thread, though time constraints mean I never had time to contribute much before and that may continue, but I'll join in when and where I can. Good choice for the first 2 cars... :tup::cheers:

    And thanks a bunch to @MrWaflz55 and @Cowboy for all their hard work on this over time.

    Also, regular users can’t delete and create polls constantly without being a moderator, so it’s impossible too.

    GT Sport Duel of the Week #1 – The Re-run!

    Hello all, and welcome back to Duel of the Week. If you’re a regular from 2015, you’re sure to remember this duel. This is how we started off the original thread all the way back then! For all you newcomers, this will be a tight competition that will get you used to how the thread works quickly! This duel spans decades and the tales of their legendary battles will be remembered by enthusiasts for many more! Sadly, one is no longer with us, and the other has gotten a whole new model generation since 2010. It’s the...​
    4755890344256602120_0.jpg

    ...2014 Subaru WRX STi Type S!

    Against the...

    6134554707722536464_0.jpg

    ...2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition!


    This duel will surely be a close one, just like it always has! The Subaru may be a newer model since 2010, but I’m sure Mitsubishi has been tweaking the Evo over the years too. Let’s see how well they get around the time trial this week.

    Speaking of which, now would be a good time to mention how the time trials will work.

    · Every week, I’ll decide a location and tyre compound for the duel in a post below the main one, as well as a side competition for those interested.

    · Go to GT Sport and record your best lap replays for both cars in Time Trial mode offline.

    · Remember to share both lap replays. In the description of the post, be sure to include the time of your lap, your GTPlanet name and the tire compound of the week.

    · For tags, tag #1 needs to be “GTSDuel” and tag #2 needs to be the code of the week. Since this is week one, the code is “DOTW001”. Remember it’s not case sensitive, so don’t worry.

    · We’ve operated on the Gentleman’s Agreement since the start, so don’t use dirty tricks like tuning your car or dropping the weight. Respect your fellow posters.

    · If you’re five or ten seconds ahead of Vic, you’re probably lying.

    · Be sure to post your replays to the discover area before the week ends. We obviously won’t count late entries.

    So, let's get on with the first duel! Time trial info will be in the post immediately below!​

    1200px-Tsukuba-circuit.svg.png

    Get down there and post your best times before next Sunday! Let's see which Japanese Rally Sedan is fastest around this tight Japanese track. The tags for this duel are "GTSDuel" in the first slot, and "DOTW001". In the third slot, include your favourite kind of fish or whatever.

    The results will be posted at the end of the week by either Thrasher or Me, we'll see! But for now, have a happy Easter!​

    You never know, Waffle. Your Aunt Jemima could be faster than good old Tricky Vic.
    Can do a Youtube video. Will need to do this tonight or tomorrow night.

    Consider this the giant column of stone's big return to the thread!

    Well hey, if it isn’t our residents SuzukaStar, any chance you still post the lap replays to YouTube like you did in the old thread?

    Unfortunately no, I've been too lazy. I'd like to get around to that sometime. For now, I share most of them on GT Sport.

    If you got the tags then there's no need to share them on YouTube.

    We’re just talking about lap replays from Suzuka East. He’s known for posting lap times of cars at Midfield and Suzuka as part of his vote, that’s just his specialty and it isn’t part of Maven’s time trial entry.

    Just for anyone who’s still confused at the time trial submission format, it just needs tags like this:

    536624A9-A25E-4459-B447-1E15BDACA69C.jpeg

    Then I can find your trial and get the lap time. Crazybuttoks here put his laptime in the comments, but you can put it in the description. Just as long as I can read it.

    Can I substitute a raw, unedited gameplay recording of both cars hotlapping? It goes into their settings to show that they're stock, as well.
