    Steward's Comments:
    This is our fist City Track combo on GT5 in a Rear Drive Car. The Mazda is quite controllable around here, and a lot of fun. Enjoy!

    Viewing your T1 & T2 Lap 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!

    This sounds like fun, Monaco happened to be my first WRS event when we ran it earlier in the Loeb rally car. Really enjoyed that week, hopefully I can repeat my performance back then and place on the podium :)

    Kev you're race details say Eiger Nordwand W Trail :tup:

    Is it ok that my newly bought car with all the power upgrades (except the turbos) has 244hp (not the 196hp listed in the OP)? Am I missing something? Too much beer from the last week's grocery shopping? :dunce:

    I think that the 196 is how much it has stock untouched

    My car needs an oil change and it's sitting at 232hp

    -------------------- oil change update ----------------

    Now I'm at 244, ahhh nothing like the fresh stuff :)

    Totally agree, Lefty! Nice pick, Kev. :tup: Really fun so far.
    Thanks for clearing up the HP.

    EDIT: A couple corners I got confused and thought I was doing a drift trial, instead of a time trial. :dunce:

    I'd love to do this combo but I'm not sure if or when I will be capable of running it.

    Did you do stage 1, 2, and 3 engine upgrades, and add the supercharger?

    Check your power limiter.

    You should have all of the following installed -


    • Stage 1-3 Engine Upgrades
    • CPU
    • Racing Intake Manifold
    • Racing Air Filter
    • Racing Exhaust Manifold
    • Racing Cat Converter
    • Racing Exhaust
    • Supercharger

    And double check that the Supercharger is installed. That power is about what I had when I messed up and did not have it check marked when looking at specs for the opening post.

    Take turbo off, thats you're reason. Only the supercharger should be equipped :tup:

    You need to go into the tuning garage from the GT Mode screen and perform the Stage 1,2, and 3 engine upgrades. Those cannot be done from the in event tuning screen.

    Haha :p Amen to that.... traditionally I am Monacophobic and I got a DQ in the first one running last minute and not having time to check my replay :ouch:

    Better fun with this car though. Nice choice Kev :cheers:

    First go with a rudimentary setup and using the 5-speed close ratio gear-box.

    31.803
    52.507

    Felt ok I think - Need to calm it down a bit though and stop panicking... :crazy: No idea how much time I'm looking for at this point.

    Forgot to submit last week :banghead:

    This looks fun & I'll try it as soon as bob is finished the Nurb 24. Interesting fact, I only have one bob on the job & with 3 minutes left he's 71 laps up on the 2nd place (door) knob ;)
