    • Concrete that is not part of Rumble Strips and Tarmac painted Blue is not track.

    Steward's Comments:

    We've been waiting for the right track to let the Gr.4 Viper loose, and this is it. Pretty straightforward lap initially, hunting those final tenths is surely going to be a challenge. Enjoy!

    Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
    • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
    • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
    • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.
    • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
    • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If you’re still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if you’re still undecided, run the lap again.

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private IM service.):
    • Total Lap Time.
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total lap time.
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 104 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      X:XX.XXX
      (Example-) 1:10.100
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, you no longer have the ability to export the files.
    • If you have an error, don't panic. Just review the instructions for submission and submit again. If you are having trouble and cannot figure it out, please post your question in the race thread.
    • Users can ask the bot for the current submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 104 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 104 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, November 25th 2019 11:59pm GMT
    • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site.
    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.

    Replay Checking:
    • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via the GT Sport Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Replay Verify Required).
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

    Good luck,

    That first picture of the viper looks sweet.

    In RaceDriver: Grid I used a Dodge Viper.. got (possibly, never been confirmed) a world record on 2 tracks. Forza 3 I used the Viper ACR '08 in S class with AWD modification to place top 10 on the majority of technical tracks. I downloaded the #8 guys tune, beat his time, then they invited me to join the clan. Which was the top time trial clan on Forza..

    Needless to say I have to do this combo as long as it's not one of those weird Javier/Kevin/Bart sadist combos. You KNOW what I mean.

    Finally got some finished laps on this after bolting my new downsized desk to the floor haha.. tried some laps straight out of the bat when I hooked it all up and annoyingly when I got to the last bend the desk would tip towards me and wreck everything :p anyway 4 big hooks screwed into the floor and some bungee cord wrapped around the bottom of the desk has locked it in place for now... as the wife says I'm very heavy handed and everything needs re-enforcing to accommodate for me :lol::tup:

    BB0

    Shifting just before the redline :tup: More to come off when I start farting around with the BB... GL all :cheers:

    Small improvement at the line but damn that left hander after T2 is the bane of my driving this track :ouch: to actually hit it correctly with a decent exit speed my error rate is about 50/50 ... I have been slightly faster at T2 then that horrible bend sends me to straight to hell! :tdown::p

    Here's a T1 vid from my best lap so far but hope to improve my lap time on the next session with some luck [​IMG]

    Fun Combo!! Got a starter lap in, but I’ll be doing a lot of laps this week, I’m really enjoying this one. BoP must kill this car because I’ve never liked it before tonight, but I’ve only ever used it in Sport Mode. More to come! Great Splits so far fellas! :cheers:

    Yeah exactly that mate... this was my Gr4 car of choice before the BoP made it a non contender in the TT's :( but with everyone in the same car in the WRS this is a great car to battle in :cheers:

    As Ron said, it actually used to be really good. This car and the Mustang were similarly capable on the Race C to be able to short shift and zero stop.

    But that was several major updates ago, those cars got ruined and others rose up.

    The thing about the nature of BOP is that it should favor certain cars on certain tracks, but we should not end up with cars that are great almost everywhere, and others that are terrible almost everywhere.

    Went from analogue stick accelerate and brake to shoulder buttons, with square and triangle for gear changes. Spent a lot of time pressing the wrong buttons but managed to squeeze out an improvement.
