    • While in the 'Replay Theater' you can view your total Oval lap time in the replay summary.
    • While Viewing Your Road Course Replay, Choose the "Live Timing Monitor" To View Your Sector Times.
    • To post your T1 and T2 splits, simply post the sector times that are shown in the live timing monitor.
    • The WRS Fetchbot has been updated and will now add your splits together!

    • Runoff areas are not part of the track
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty

    @Chris - Is it '67 or is it '69? Not to be a nitpicker but I'm thinking I missed something somewhere? And I'd love a ready tuned chrome one if it's still on offer ;)

    You could try rebuilding your engine if it shows an HP increase in GT auto.

    Edit: Jeezus - I'll have to start reading before I write eh?

    Yeah definitely give it a try, I'm way out of whack with a pad these days but it was really easy to drive and suits the track.

    What's with the Honda S2000 pic on the leaderboard? Seems a bit out of place!

    Man I love this car. Not so hot at SSR5 usually (better in reverse) but I'll give it a good go...

    First time TT'ing here, so I don't really know the best ways round some of the corners. But I'm finding faster ways the more I do it.

    First splits:

    38.701
    28.436

    Not having any more fun with the Civic, so I thought I'd give this a go. And I don't think it's much better, really. The car is pretty, but not that easy to drive.

    Nice, but seems to bog down a bit. Might post some time later, still slower than heck.

    All parts added and oil changed. Have not touched the tuning yet so this is my baseline.

    One easy question. Are the White Hash Marks considered Runoff Area? Ok, I am assuming they are "Ripple Strips"-----HUH? :confused:

    Did some reading:

    Why was the Bond car open-topped? because Sean Connery was too tall for the coupé! The two Bond cars were the only open-topped versions made.
    351 production cars were built - by Yamaha - and were mostly white or red - but I saw a yellow one too.
    Carol Shelby built 3 2000GT's and competed in the US in 1968. Toyota won the Fuji 24hr with it in 1967 - and just for you Chris:
    Since all we have is a standard, this is what it looked like inside:
    [​IMG]

    Here's a collection of 450 'Old Toyota Pictures' on Flickr, a 2000GT dedicated site (Google Translate is your friend n'est'pas?). It's even got a Facebook page and to put the cherry on the cake, here's a page advertising an event in Japan in December 2011 where you could book a 20 minute passenger ride, buy a '2000GT latte', a '2000GT Time Trial' meal and chat with one of the original development engineers at the Toyota Theme Park
    - I use Chrome which does the Google translate thing automatically.

    This is probably the definitive US 2000GT collector (click on image):

    From my experience on the pad, tuned combo's are actually more beneficial. The main place that wheel users are better at then the pad is hairpins/slow corners, as the pad just can't get the same lock as the wheel. But with tuning, you can play around with the settings to make the car have more oversteer, which will then put you on more of an even playing field as the wheel.
