Steward's Comments:
This is our first race car combo AND our first arcade combo at Suzuka on GT5. Yes, we've used the Calsonic a lot, this is the 4th time. But it's really the best race car available in arcade mode, and this is a much different combo than the others we have run. It reminds me a lot of my first WRS at Suzuka, nearly 5 years ago. :crazy:

And the results of that one, very close for me.

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
  • 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 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 & T2 times
  • Any settings discussion.



Number of Splits: 2



Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 90 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):





  • Please submit your time in the following format on a single line:
    Time: X'XX.XXX
    (Example-) Time: 0'49.100
  • Users can ask the bot for the current submitted time by sending a message with the body: "get entry"
  • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the body of "remove entry".
  • If multiple times are submitted, only the last submission will be counted.
  • Please include in your submission PM your final lap time
  • The deadline is Monday, November 12th, 2012 11:59pm GMT
  • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site




SuzukaCircuit_6.jpg



Why Use GMT?:
GMT is World Time and the basis of every world time zone which sets the time of day and is at the centre of the time zone map. GMT sets current time or official time around the globe. Most time changes are measured by GMT. Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.



Time verification:


Save your ghost replay and keep it at least a full two weeks after the event's deadline:








  • Racers, named by the OLR Admin staff, (if any) will be required to submit a replay for verification
  • Any submitted time is subject to a time verification request
  • When a time verification has been requested, the concerned racer must provide the correct replay within seven days of the request
  • Failure to do so will result in the removal of the unverified submission from the results table
  • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

Gave it a quick go (15 laps) during my break from Rome. This will probably make sure of some close results. Good fun.

Lol, that might be better yes, guess I wanted it the easy way :)

Thanks for waking me up Wes 👍

I do not know this track very well, so it's a good opportunity to learn.

Second try :)

I'm with you on that Dennis. My favorite car in the game and a top 3 track for me. Going to have to juggle my time between this and practicing for the "Greatest Hits" Online Event.

We should meet up later in the week in the lounge after a Motegi practice and run some online hot laps with this combo. Funner to chase a split online once you get the easier gains out of the way offline.

Glad somebody is with me Tim. I think it's better for me to keep this one offline till i have reached my limited specially when i have so little time to practice for all this upcoming events.

Some great first spilts, specially for a quicky

Thanks Dennis.:)

Yeah, that's relative. The last hours I've been chasing hundrends of a seconds.. So a couple of tenths feel like a lot to me.

My first WRSTT...:cheers:

T1: 50.871
T2: 42.645

Made a couple of errors:mad:...still a few tenths there on the lap for me if I can put it all together...if I get some time I'll give it another shot.

EDIT: Just noticed Room and I are only 1/1000th apart in the first two sectors:cheers:

Nice combo but I'm having a week off this week - busy times in RL at the mo and I've been wanting to take a week or 2 out for the last month (or more) but the combos have all been too good. This one is good as well of course but with these tyres on this track I'm finding it pushes at the front too much. I'm never good with understeer at the best of times and am generally not so hot round Suzuka... so a good time to begin my hiatus. :sly:

Good luck guys :cheers:

I had a lot of issues with understeer in testing in both this car and the 97 Tom's, which was the other option I considered. The Tom's was worse, I had to put it on Softs to tune it out, and that was just not fun.

I started on hards with this car, and the understeer with those was unbearable for me. So I changed to mediums, and I did note the understeer, but found it manageable, part of the challenge in my view.

I had time for a brief session yesterday, and found brake balance of 2/3 helped take some of it out in the high speed turns as well.

Really liked this car in past events so hopefully it'll be on par with those. This combo kind of reminds me of one the GT4 S License tests (it's been a while so I don't remember the exact car, but I remember being stuck on that particular test for a while).

I found you have to use 90% throttle in some places otherwise it just plows... exit of spoon for example. If only this game allowed you to set a tune and force all people to use it... this car is just "magic" with a really good track specific tune. Still fun stock though.

At some point in the future we're going to use this car in an online event "with tuning". I was actually thinking about recommending that we allow tuning in the online race next week, but I know the "no tuning" guys would decapitate me for suggesting it so I'll not even go there. :lol:

Welcome to your first WRS, good luck.

It can't hardly be any closer. You can have that 1/1000th now, if can have it in the end :lol:

Thru. That last bit of throttle makes the car understeery. Exit of spoon you can push the car through the understeer into oversteer with a quick steer correction just before the car switch from understeer to oversteer. it's hard to do but manageable. i hate understeer a lot but and the only point on the track where you have to avoid the understeer is in eSSeS.

You better not go there, Tim :lol: Although i might not even make to the race. Maybe the saturday night attack

We'll have a look at it and will provide an update/direction in the event that there is an impact.

The wording in the update was very fuzzy, it refers to "control characteristics". That might mean physics, but it might not. And even if it does mean physics, we don't know if the changes were made to the online physics or the offline physics.
