    Steward's Comments:
    The WRS turns 9 this week. 9 years of WRS, 9 Splits, 9 pictures of this great Alfa at Nurb. And 9 years of putting up with Mr P. ;) This is a beauty of a little combo, enjoy. :tup:

    [​IMG]

    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!

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:





    • At least two tires 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 at least two 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
    • 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
    • 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

    Not looking forward to this one, it's just the shear length of the lap that'll hinder me.

    But the racing mediums should help. Looks like a good combo.

    And keeping in topic with the theme I'll only do 9 laps :lol:

    Is it coincidence that the tach will hardly ever drop below 9k? Goes up to 12k+!?!

    Gave it a few laps already and holy :censored:! My new favorite car...good thing, too, 'cause I hope to spend more time with this than Chuk normally does!

    Happy 9's, WRS & Mr P. :cheers:

    Great choice Kevin. Love this circuit!!

    Wow, 9 years of the WRS. I had no idea it has been around that long. I'm still a newbie in comparison.

    Happy anniversary to the WRS and to all that make it happen each and every week.:cheers:

    I don't think my pedals will remain at 100% throttle long enough to get a lap in. I really don't want to use a controller either. Can't imagine how terrible I'd be with that. Only use it for drifting now.

    This is going to be a tough week with lots of time needed. Already had about 30min of wasted time from small mistakes mid lap.

    First few laps using a tune from Praiano's Garage with stock transmission settings

    Happy Birthday WRS!! :cheers: :gtpflag:

    It makes me sorry I've only been a part of it since GT5P (and then only occasionally) and that I've only really got stuck in in the last 12 months with GT5. Really wish I'd heard about it back in GT4. I still maintain the best thing I ever did with GT was join in here. Bravo to the admin team, particularly the long suferring Kevin :sly: and Vaxen for his marvelous handicap system. Thanks you guys :tup:

    Oh and Happy 9th (WRS) Birthday to Ron - here's to 9 more mate :cheers:

    Unfortunately I am still in mortal fear of the 'ring in all but GP form so this may not be a particularly successful week, but here goes... Attempt the first:

    35.442
    23.735
    19.782
    42.528
    31.262
    27.237
    47.122
    35.945
    25.533

    Crazy. I don't ever feel in control round the Nordschleife part - always just a hair away from a wipe-out and after 2 laps my jaw aches from clenching. I've only done 5 laps and I need a lie down. :crazy:

    This car being All Wheel Drive, I think you'd find it more productive to increase front bias if you are struggling with spinning out. Also mess around with the LSD settings. TC should be used as an absolute last resort, as it often cuts out power when you really need it to recover, plus it slows you down a lot more than the other tricks I mention.

    Make sure you have Max Aero on the car as well, it makes a pretty big difference.

    I messed around a bit with settings while testing last night. I have a transmission I'm happy with, I'll try to get a tuning run in today, and post my setup.

    TC is just something I have found works well with my driving style and controller. Now if I am driving something that would have never had any traction control in the real world, then I try not to use it, like the 427 cobra...that thing is a bear to drive in real life.

    I guess this one may have been right on the cusp of traction control stuff, and I will eventually end up with it off, because I too have found that 4wd cars don't need it, but I like to run a safe lap first, know what I mean?

    I look forward to seeing some setups, I am still not very good with those.

    A little heads up to anyone....

    It's not possible to send this car from one account to another. So you will have to have the 1.5 million credits it takes to buy this car in your GTP account....

    Atleast this is what I've found and I'm now grinding again to get some credits! :(

    Yeah, I did not find the value to be all that concerning.

    Share your Bobs online and make friends with some of the guys in here, and you can earn the credits while you sleep. ;)

    If you have the 200% bonus, two of the newest seasonal 650pp races should cover the job. It's 900k+ a race at 200%.

    5 laps around SSR5 shouldn't take more than 10 minutes with that pp range.

    Nope. I was just trying to help you out. Controller or not, I think you'll find the fast guys only use TC as a last resort, as I mentioned. Try changing the Front bias on the AWD to 50%. If you can drive with that amount of understeer, it should make you faster.

    And I don't think dick is in the swear filter. ;)

    I'll try that, I just dropped some more time, am down to 180 on the tranny and am getting just to the edge of grip. So the 50/50 may dial me in a little better.

    Just trying to be politically correct with my dicks:dopey:

    Really starting to enjoy this car now, and the four exhaust pipes shooting fire on the replay looks outrages. :D Tried a photo but the flames don't show :confused:

    Taken almost 5 seconds off my time and can see room for maybe another 5 but getting them is going to be hard work.

    Edit: btcannon the praiano tune i'm using (link in my first post) is running 35/65 split and is working very well for me with no wheel spin. I am also using a controller.

    I had a lot of trouble getting this pic last night as well. I would pause with the wheels in the air, and the Photo would show them back on the ground.

    [​IMG]

    The pause timing vs. the photo timing are off a bit from one another. I think you need to pause a little BEFORE the timing of the flames, then they will be in the pic.
