    Steward's Comments:
    A different twist on the Evora Cup so many of us enjoyed online for the last 2 years. The car has really nice grip on N3's. Watch out for lift off oversteer, and know that it has more torque and grunt in 3rd gear than you would think. Resist the temptation to shift down into second and back up in some places, it might cost you more than you can gain.


    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 Page' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay' option.

    Do you have to somehow send the actual replay? Or just the stats regarding the time?

    Welcome Sam

    You have to send your laptime to Vaxen before the deadline. And only have to post your replay when you finish on the podium in your division.

    Hi Sam, as long as you have a computer and a USB stick, we can help you with the rest. If you dont have the means to supply a replay i would respectfully ask you not to officially participate or submit until you do :cheers: Replays must be posted by top 3 finishers in each division.

    All the best

    Thanks. I doubt I'll finish on the podium, so I probably won't worry about uploading replays, but I may come close.

    However, assuming I do finish on the podium, how would I transfer the replay. I have a youtube account, if that helps.

    You'll need to save your best lap replay, then from your PS3 home screen transfer the saved replay to a USB stick. Take the stick to your pc, zip up the whole PS3 folder and upload to this forum. Regardless of your expectations I once again respectfully suggest you don't compete unless you have the facilities to provide replay verification in this fashion. YouTube replays sadly are not yet acceptable. Maybe when we can directly export to YT from GT5 :tup:

    All the best

    The Evora has a remarkable amount of grip on N3, after the Corvette N3 Daytona online combo this feels positively pedestrian and on rails. I did actually find I did have to shift down to 2nd, I didn't find enough torque in 3rd gear always. I also struggled far more with understeer than oversteer.

    All the best

    Wohooo! :O I'll give it a go too, MR + Suzuka + N3 tires, which just doubles the fun factor. :D

    Not quite sure on which colour I'll be using, but I won't stick to the Isothope Green Evora. :lol:

    When I said "This loos like alot of fun" before I forgot one key ingredient, I am completely unsatisfactory with Nx tires. I will not give up though, once again good luck everybody.

    T1- 1'07.755

    N3 tires :tup:

    Quite tricky combo, very easy to lose time even if you did a really small mistake.

    Had a real quick go (4 laps) can see this one will be fun, got some big slides to get rid of to get my times down, too tempting to do some rally style driving through the last chicane though!

    Quick go after work - before the wife gets home ;)

    T1: 1'05.396
    T2: 1'59.645

    Rubbish T1 on that lap, but the middle sector was nice :)

    Car is a bit pants (understeers too much for me and the gearing is waaaay too long), but N tyres are just soooo sweet, and as Maz says, a lot easier to drive than the Vette at DR :lol:

    Overall about 0.3 faster than before.

    I felt this lap wasn't good enough in T3 and I got a wheel on the grass out of the hairpin that was a little costly. Still a tenth in T2 and a tenth in T3 to find.

    I expect when the rest of Div 3 turn up this will look poor, but I'm happy with my first attempt. Plenty to come, just need to put it together.
