    GTP WTAC Week 18 : Trilateral Week


    *** In an attempt to keep things a bit interesting, I have decided to throw a curveball: this week's event with be a 'combined times' challenge, but using only one car - the infamous Audi Quattro. Originally release in Europe at the tail-end of 1980, it was the first mass produced car with 4WD. Revolutionary for it's time, this beast could be taken off-road and then back on any tarmac and still be able dominate. Four-wheel drive isn't such a big deal now, but at that time, it was shock wave throughout the automotive industry. For this challenge, we'll use the 1982 model and do so on three separate tracks. It should be interesting! ***


    1. Tracks :
    • Twin Ring Motegi West Short Course
    • Beginner Course (forward)
    • Cathedral Rocks Trail III (reverse)

    This sounds good! My first guess at one track is either Tahiti Maze, or Cathedral rocks 1, for the reference of 'off road and then back to any tarmac'. Am I right? Chamonix also has tarmac.

    LOL

    I can safely say that it won't be the Test Track - we've already had our fill of ovals after doing Twin Ring Motegi Super Speedway a few weeks ago!

    :nervous:


    I'll update the thread a little bit later with the new tracks added!

    Tracks added!

    I chose short ones so this challenge wouldn't be too overwhelming.


    I just added a crappy, handmade track map for Cathedral Rocks Trail III - If anyone wants to do a better one, be my guest! I have no attachment to my quickly drawn version.

    :)

    Sounds good! Since they are all small tracks, it will be VERY close! I will test the car and the tracks today, and I should get rough times.

    Wow, I never saw that! Looks like a 'copy and paste' gone wrong. By the way, this week introduces the 'no sparks' rule.

    Whew I thought Week 18 was running same time as Week 17. Considering these are short courses. I panicked and ran each track just to beat the deadline tomorrow.
    Nice Info Detroitbb! Never Thought Audi was the 1st one to produce 4wd cars.

    It sure was!



    It's pretty much always been in effect, but I had just added that as a reminder.

    I should also note that 'no sparks' doesn't apply to your car bottoming out - only to scraping things (walls/barriers/etc.) alongside the track.

    Nice photos! I love the airbourne Quattro! I had a chance to run the car on Beginner course, and 20 laps gave me a 27'5XX. This car is a 4WD, so it will accelerate out or corners quickly. I recommened that you find the earliest apex out of the corner.

    I have spent roughly 100 laps on beginner course, trying to master the 'kink', which gave me a 27.4XX. I broke into the 29 second barrier at Cathedral rocks and managed 45.4XX at Motegi. By the way, the fastest safe speed i've gone on the jump at Cathedral rocks was 75mph.

    I think that I could improve 2 tenths from Beginner Course, half a second from Cathedral rocks (from the big hairpin) and 2 hundreths from Motegi. I definetly need practice on Cathedral rocks.

    Man... you guys are pulling away from me!

    I got my Cathedral Rocks Trail III time down to 30.5xx, my Twin Ring Motegi time down to 45.6xx, and my Beginner Course time reduced by two-hundredths of a second (still in the 27.5xx range).

    I did have a 29.9xx on the rally course, but while watching the replay with the chase cam - I saw the dreaded 'sparks' right after the jump.

    I should mention that we have to be careful when going from the Cathedral Rocks Trail III to one of the paved courses. The game will automatically switch to the default S3 tires... but we're using S2's for this challenge. Be careful not to run on the S3's and disqualify a fast lap!

    Do you think this is clean? 1 wheel on tarmac, 1 wheel on the kerb and two wheels on the grass. I achieved a 27.0XX on Beginner course! I mastered the 'kink', and shaved 4 tenths!

    Typically, no. But if it's on the outside rumble strip (not an inside one), then it's 'OK' per the rules.
