    Steward's Comments:

    We can install Aero this Month, I found the car reacts well to downforce adjustments alone. As always, driving consistent requires consistent brake zone adjustments.

    Race Clean, Race Hard :tup:

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:

    • All GTP members in the race lobby are still required to follow the Acceptable Usage Policy and conduct themselves in the same manner as posting on the forum.

You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the Weekly Race Series. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines. Do take the time to read it as all participants will be held accountable for their actions.
    • Race Stewards reserve the right to boot any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the Race Steward and are booted from the race room, you will receive 1 Infraction Point which will get logged at the GTP_Registry Disciplinary Log. Three strikes are you are banned from the GTP_Registry.
    • 2 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track
    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible

    Erm... April 2nd? Hopefully you mean June 11th, because I'm busy on the 4th and 5th!

    Oh, and sweet! Can't wait...I enjoy the RX-7 thoroughly. It was my sister's favourite car in GT4. ;)

    What confuses me is the 10 AM, 11 AM; since you are in Oregon is that 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time?

    Forgive my confusion :)

    The Concours Club, for example, races at 8 pm British Summer Time (BST) which equals noon Pacific Daylight Time (here on Vancouver Island) :)

    I just bought the car in the NCD and went to the tuneshop to put everything that's permitted on it.
    I now have 581p.p. with the enginepower limited on 564Bhp.
    It says the max allowed is 485p.p. Is that correct? The reason I'm asking this is because it looks like an awefull big difference.
    If it is correct I need to downtune the car some more.

    Havent raced the RX7 since golding that seasonal at Tsukuba some time ago. Seasonals got much easier shortly after I remember, but anyway I digress.

    Havent raced a great deal in reverse here.. Should be interesting. Not the best tuner either so more variables equals more uncertainty. However the combo looks excellent. The RX7 is a quick beast as standard. Throw in a few power mods and Racing slicks and this weekend should be furious!!

    Is there any reason why we shouldnt post our practice lap times in here Jerome? Would be nice to be able to get an idea of how fast people are going while practicing :tup:

    Quick note... since daylight saving and british summer time were introduced I kind of get confused with the times. However, if I've read correctly, there are 8 hours worth of events!!! On the hour!.. A quick look in here before the race is all thats required. If I am free for some racing saturday then here is where I will be :D

    edit: I just had a look on time and date dot com and I think for us UK guys the races start at 6pm. I think. I'll check back on saturday, but the idea put forward in event two of a countdown clock to race one sure would be helpful :tup:

    The first race will be at 10am GMT - 7 and the second race I'm hosting is at 11am GMT - 7. In other words, it would be at 6pm British Summer Time (BST)

    Hope you can make it :cheers:

    Hey Jerome, while you're here could you just clear something up for me?

    I just set about building my car and I cant get the figures to match..

    564bhp with max downforce is 590 PP
    564bhp with min downforce is 577PP

    max power @ 590bhp with max downforce is 595 PP

    Can you clarify please? :)

    Start Type: Grid Start with False Start Check

    I haven't used this yet, what does it mean/do?
  12. Captain Roh

    United Kingdom NG9

    You have to hold the brake pedal on the start grid...

    And instead of the game launching you from your box, you have to release the brake when the countdown says 'START'...

    If you release too early and false start, you incur a time penalty

    Yes, now that you mention it I believe you are correct I will double check this tonight and report back. IIRC I can only limit either PP OR HP and Weight, so it may be a PP limit of 595 in the lobby.

    Cheers dude. For now i'll run it at ..

    Thanks for the time clarification :tup:

    I'll be there :)

    The max I can get on this car is 599HP and 597PP... My HP climbs a bit, but the PP doesn't. Let me know if you can hit 598PP, but I don't think it will go that high. Updated and thanks for double checking :cheers:

    I still must be very stupid because I just don't get it. At what time, GMT without any timezones, does the first race start? I don't understand what the -7 means. -7 what from where?

    I've asked this before, why can't we just use GMT?

    Count me in. What races would be around 7-8pm GMT (your system still confuses me).

    I will be using PSN: GTP_lbsf1

    Also does that mean we can basicly fully tune the car.

    Thx Ace for clearing it out for us.:tup:

    Errr... I dont think Jordan got the memo, because on the news feed the event is scheduled for sunday! I see lots more people in here already so that needs to be cleared up ASAP!
  23. A little late for this, don't you think?

    Just noticed that also. Not a problem for me as I can do either day.

    I just need to know in bst (british summer time) when the races are.

    Hope I can make it but the weather is getting so nice, hiding inside in the half dark with curtains down just so I can see the screen and I feel like a cellar rat :)

    What is this about really? Is it not supposed to be allowed to take the car for a test run before and fiddle with the tuning?

    Call me stupid too. Last time we also had so much confusion about the times. Just give us GMT times please. :tup:

    I've never competed in one of these before when it says "Qualified Member" does this mean some form of qualification has happened for this OMRS or is it just specifying a GTP tag? As I would love to race in this :)!

    Cheers :).
  27. A e r o


    First time racing wheel to wheel in a GTP event here, and I have one question about the event regulations.

    "Car Tuning Settings: Optional (All Tuning MUST Be Done During Warm Up, Not Beforehand)"

    With regards to the requirement for tuning to be done during the warm up, does this mean that we are not allowed to setup the car in practice mode during the next few days? Are we supposed to buy all the parts, leave the default settings and tune settings only once we are in the lobby?

    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated, as this seams a little strange to me at the moment.

  28. Jump_Ace

    Staff Emeritus

    Meant to delete that part earlier, feel free to tune as needed.

    As for the PP/HP. It does take a while for the car's HP to jump and if someone just wants to join the race without having to do laps to match HP, I will limit the race lobby to 595PP. The car's HP will jump after a few warm up laps when in the lobby qualifying. Hopefully this way it will be more equal so those that do more laps beforehand don't have an unfair advantage (besides being more familiar with the combo ;))

    Also PM'd Jordan about the races being on Saturday (Australia is Sunday).

    GMT - 7 means you subtract 7 Hours from GMT. For example if it is 7PM GMT, then it is 12PM GMT - 7. I can't describe it any simpler than that.

    So your state is 2 hours behind where I live, which is good because that's noon for me. I might be able to make it.
  30. cicua

    Denmark Copenhagen
    PSN:GTP_cicua / cicua

    Yes, you could. Just provide a real GMT (UTC) times.

    But let me try then.

    10AM, 11AM (GMT-7) = 17:00, 18:00 GMT
    12PM, 1PM (GMT-7) = 19:00, 20:00 GMT
    2PM, 3PM (GMT-7) = 21:00, 22:00 GMT
    4PM, 5PM (GMT-7) = 23:00, 00:00 GMT

    Oh wait, what about summertime? Yeah I know where I am, GMT+1 zone and another +1 for current summertime, but what about you? Have you subtracted your local summertime (if any, what do I know) from your local times above? You did not specify and it is confusing because local time usually includes summertime while GMT does not (by definition).

    Could you please verify the above GMT times?
