    • Tarmac and Red and White Rumbles are Track.
    • The green surfaces next to the rumbles are NOT track.


    Steward's Comments:
    Another Arcade Mode car that we have not used yet. It suits the track remarkably well. The balance is there, with a bit of oversteer tendency. Understeer is nerly non-existent, rare for an FR drivetrain car.

    Viewing your T1 & T2 Time Splits:



    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay Theater' option.
    • While Viewing Your 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!

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:



    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if all four tires would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are 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
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Save your best lap/ghost replay

    Nice car and a fun drive. :tup: Shame I'm rubbish at Suzuka... maybe its time to learn this track properly. I've always liked it but, as with Fuji, I never seem to get on the pace here.

    Not a Camaro fan what so ever, but I'll drive anything.
    Couple 5 shake down laps before bed to get a feeler for the week.

    Not sure I get this car or the track. :dunce: I think PD have programmed the Suck Coefficient on these newer American cars a bit high. :lol:

    Going to be a frustrating week but must push to improve.

    Took me 3 corners to figure out I'm going to love this combo. Don't like Suzuka, but love sliding this car around. It just turns in sharply and goes, and pretty easy to kick the back around but a lot of fun doing so!

    First splits after a very short and sloppy run just to get the feel.

    1'01.242
    50.734

    Just finished up with a Hail Mary run at Deep Forest and frankly, just too tired to continue. The fun will start tomorrow.

    This one will be a week long effort cause if you loose your mo it takes a week for this car to get back up to speed :)

    T1: 1'00.628

    Thanks Gayle! No good at this track but I like T2 for the most part. :) I don't like that the sectors are so long though. Makes it difficult to see where I am gaining or losing time.

    I agree, with T1 being soo long it is difficult to dissect one's faults. I would like to be able have the ability to see a Ghost of a faster driver concurrent with my current lap.

    One tip for the first sector: If you can manage a good line in the esses and not use the brake, you should be able to get through it faster. Experiment with corner entry as well. You might find you have to sacrifice one corner to benefit the next one.

    First hour long session finished up now.
