    The combo seems simple, but car control will be the key this week. Have fun sliding the Subaru around the track. :tup:


    Viewing your T1 & T2 Time Splits:






    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'.

    Found some time in between races with Chuk and Jake to get this one put up. We'll probably go run this online for a bit in an hour or so, come join us if you'd like. :tup:

    This looks fun, hopefully my registration will be completed and I'll get my division placement.
    2 WRS events are gone since my submission. :/

    Sounds like Wes territory :sly:

    I have never done one of these 2 lap combos so should be fun, judging by you're comment Kev tells me this car is a handful :nervous:

    Wait, is it 2 laps or is that part left over from the previous event here? No where else does it mention 2 laps except the end.

    Edit: i'm pretty sure it's meant to be just 1 lap.

    It's one lap, I screwed up, Will fix it now.

    EDIT : Wow, I really screwed up. I also put the wrong compound in the first post, please refer back to it if you have already run some.

    Crap, I just put in about an hour on this doing a 2 lap race on S2's front and back. I saved my best lap but I have to throw it away now due to wrong compound :(

    Ok, so at least it wasn't time wasted, got a good idea of the track. Just need to be a lot more gentle with the steering on the double left at the end of the downhill straight. No TC, first splits:

    You may need to remove the "Save replay" part as it's not two laps. As I assume we just save the ghost as normal.

    Might confuse any new members taking part.

    While we're at it - is it 'Save Replay' or 'Save Ghost Replay'? The post mentions both and with a one-lap Time Trial a Ghost Replay does seem to make more sense to me...

    I've been busy bolting my wheel rig together and its finally finished - hence the lack of runs for me the past few weeks.
    Might unleash the beast on this one this week.
    Nice job Kev.
    Good luck guys.
    Cheers All

    Gave up dancing with the German ladies and went for this combo...which is super-fun! :tup:

    I think my extreme brake setup may be killing my stopping distance, though.

    I'm shifting way before redline, around 6500 7000.

    First ten laps. I wish my drifting skills were better, this thing really slides the rear with this tire combo. Better than the front pushing though.:scared:

    Lots of work to do.

    Am I just incredibly slow/rusty/stupid (delete as applicable) or am I doing something wrong with my split times, I'm getting T2's in the region of 42-43 seconds not low 20's as everyone seems to be posting??? :scared:

    Edit: Nevermind, it's the time from T1 to T2. :D

    Wow that's a tricky little track. Fun combo though. If anyone has some tips for Any settings we can play with or how to tackle that double left that would be great. After a quick session here are my times.
