    Steward's Comments:
    This is like having our own Track Day, it's almost what I named the event, Track Day Special. All 3 cars are the same in initial specs. I tried to keep the car as close to a tuner/street car as possible, with limited upgrades that are verifiable. As a result, we will not be able to compete with the top leaderboard times this week, but the car is a lot more fun to drive in this state, in my opinion. 6th gear is terrible, but the car likes to run right to the limiter, so you really should not need it at all.

    Viewing your T1 and T2 Time Splits:


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



    [​IMG]



    • 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. Concrete sections bordering the Rumbles are not 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


    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods):



    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime


    The following information can be discussed in this thread :


    • T1 and T2 times

    Should be fun, already had a good practise last weekend in the seasonals where I am positioned around the 200° place. Looking forward to this :tup:

    That ofcourse was in a tunned car with extra parts....

    Nice to see you back in for a run Matt. :cheers: Where you been hiding?

    I have to say I love these cars and had a couple of quick sessions in the BRZ when the seasonal first appeared - massively off the pace there but didn't settle on a decent setup. Looks like I'll have to now though... :) Great idea for a combo Kev. Are we keeping our car choice secret?

    Anyway, first go with some sort of a setup:

    44.215
    40.870

    That's probably about my limit I reckon, unless there's some setup magic to be found. Short week.. :sly:

    -20/-20
    17.0/15.0
    9/7
    7/5
    7/4
    2.0/1.0
    0.00/0.00

    5/16/10

    BB 5/5 ABS 10

    Feel free to share your car choice this week. The cars are really all the same, with different badging. I'm sure someone will argue with me/point out differently, but they are all the same, as far as I can tell.

    I don't see how anyone could argue the difference. Same power, same weight, same PP, same torque. I've got all 3 set up just because and the only difference are the rims, rims color and car colors.

    Still a couple of HPs short of full break-in, I think. That was with stock suspension. I'll try Chris's setup next :tup:

    I ended up adjusting the setup on either the FR-S or the 86 and ended up running the BRZ for 12 laps before noticing something wasn't quite right with it's ride height.

    Splits from that session.

    44.899
    41.623


    Adjusted the setup and ran 5 more laps.

    You can buy the Toyota 86GT '12 in the new car dealership.

    Very early in this seasonal I wondered if I had ruined my car with to much weight reduction. Thought it was irreplaceable but went looking to see if I could buy another one of the 3 cars and was very happy to see I could at anytime without owning any DLC.

    Going to try this right now.

    Edit: Oh I see we cant buy a tranny upgrade so we cant tune it....interesting.

    My seasonal TT tune on the WRS specs car. Except now the trannys set to default tranny theres a rear wing on it now and Im not running ballast in the rear. different but still a decent tune. I like how aggressive it lets me get on the gas out of the slow stuff at the moment. Quite fun.

    It's my own personal protest against the game reverting to the irritating gear whine being louder than the engine when updating to a custom transmission.

    Plus, the gearing is really pretty good in stock form.

    I have no problem with that, just hope everyone checks the excact specifications as mentioned in the op.

    I love the car, already used this car togheter with Stef at Motegei (short), it is a good 400pp car aswell. Last weekend I also enjoyed the seasonals tt where I had a nice training(8 hours) for this altert version. So I am 'for' ;)

    Cheers, I'm assuming suspension kits are also allowed.

    • Suspension: Fully Adjustable Suspension Allowed
    Also added that bit.


    You get to do everything except transmission, Engine Modifications/ECU, and Upgraded Exhaust.


    The PP and HP really help guide you to the right power mods. Sorry for missing the other bits. Chris managed to read my mind, as he probably realized we would not be able to verify those things properly if we did not allow them. ;)

    :p I think its called accidentally running off in the right direction Kevin. But yeah some part of my brain knows that those things can't be verified. :sly:

    Do you mean no mods after the cat but manifold and cat are cool to upgrade to sports?

    Is the Sports Exhaust and the Catalic converter allowed but the rest such as exhausts etc not allowed. Think I'm getting this right by putting it cause I was missing some HP after break in, though im not exactly sure so wanted to check.
