    When I first start up GT5P I usually do one of the event races to warm up. I redo them with Pro physics because I know that in my desire to get the F2007 if I couldn't complete one quickly I did it with standard physics. I know I didn't do many on standard, but cannot remember which ones so I am redoing them all. I was doing one of the easier races with the BMW Z4 and though I had messed up and put it on Standard physics. It was like the car was on rails. I don't remember the little BMWs being this good in GT4. I was going to mention this in the suggestion box, but I actually prefer cars that are a little bit of a challenge or something that I don't drive much for the WRS. Maybe with N tires it would be fun.

    Has anyone had any surprises (good or bad) with any other cars in GT5P?

    I don't know if this is the proper thread to post this, but here goes: Apparently I have submitted a dirty lap in GTP_WRS week 05. Shame on me! To clear my reputation I want to upload all other submissions hoping that some of you will be kind enough to take a look to check that my other submissions were clean. If anyone volunteers and if the mods agree that this is the place to do that, I'll upload the files ASAP.

    Don't take it so hard Bigracer. :)

    But if it eases your mind, I'll review your laps.

    :lol: I've been through all of those. :p

    The week of the Clio at Suzuka, my right hand was sore for about a week from gripping the wheel too hard while trying not to spin the car in the long, sweeping corners.

    And my left ankle was sore from the super stiff brake spring on the G25 for the first month or so that I had it.

    But you haven't lived until you spend multiple consecutive hours trying to get 2 tenths or something silly like that to get below the next second barrier. :crazy:

    Threats from significant other ranging from:
    No food
    No sex
    Sleeping on the couch
    Divorce

    I have only been treated with the first two so far. When it gets to that I give in and quit for the night.

    yep,I know the feeling,
    It happened to me when I had a great laptime in the California on High Speed Ring,followed by a major huge disappointment when seeing the replay with a possible touch.

    However I think this is what makes the racing interesting to keep on doing it.

    yep, to me the replay is clean. It's close when he overtakes the leader, but you can't see any reaction from the other car, so they don't touch.

    Shame BigRacer! Happens though. I remember once I was concentrating so hard to seeing if a particular part at the beginning of the lap was dirty, I didn't even notice a slight tap at the end. Boooo.

    Howdy gang, have returned from my European sojourn and thought I'd put up the GTP links where I posted some photos of my Nurburgring experience:

    (Dial up warning!)

    Thread Link
    Photos Post

    Anyway, I hope to be back on the track some time soon...have just started LittleBIGPlanet though so may be a little while :sly::tup:

    I was going through the old results threads and three names got my eye.

    GTP_Manuelos
    GTP_Nuclearfire
    GTP_01GTP


    Those guys submitted from week 1 till week 15 every week a time for the WRS.
    Never missed one race :tup:

    You all three are fine competitors and we are glad to have you on board.

    Yeah, even if I don't like the combo I try do give it my best shot:sly:
    This way I'm also trying out some cars I would normally never drive with. Who ever thought I would drive a 105bhp daihatsu around an uphill track:sick:

    Thanks for the recognition, Sjaak.

    I would like to also say 'Thanks' to all the participants that make this series possible.
    This series is unique and I believe it will prevail for many more years.

    Again, thanks everybody.

    I have learned from the WRS, that I am a lot quicker if I get to tune the car to my driving style.
    When asked to go into arcade for a time trial, my times compared to the usual entrants, drop about 20% I reckon.
    I need to learn to adjust my style for standard cars, if I manage to improve this area, maybe my tuned times and style may improve too.

    Just thought I'd share that you all :D

    Funny thing, because most of the WRS races I've run in were Arcade Mode Time Trials on GT4. So I tend to be the opposite, I can get a competitive time more quickly if I just worry about taking laps, as opposed to fiddling with the tune.

    There is something to be said for adjusting to stock cars.

    I also find it easier to just jump in and go for a best lap. With tuning I tend to spend too much time on changing settings instead of trying for a better lap by driving better.

    Same here. I just go to a tuning shop and use one of their tunes and hope that it's competitive. Then I just go and drive it until there's almost no more time left.

    Hello guys,

    After, it seems, 22 weeks of absence i'm thinking to return to the WRS. Actually do to OnlyMe who has bought a PS3 last week and will be returning here shortly :).

    I spend some time on the qualifier today and that left me with a question. It is strictly forbidden to post lap times here. But I can see allot of times from GTP members on the online leaderboards. I thought I read something about turning that off, here at the beginning of the GT5P WRS. But now I can't seem to find anything about it. So how does that work?

    Looking forward to racing here again!
