    Well certainly can't say I'm disappointed by this :tup: Thanks for your hard work Kev on this combo and all the others that you have continued to produce keeping GT5p entertaining despite such 'limiting' factors. I hope we can enjoy a whole range of new tracks and cars in a few weeks time.

    Now come on people, lets make this weeks WRS the best attended ever in GT5p :cheers:

    Oh-righty then

    The track i voted for, not the car. But i think there is nothing wrong with this one. No idea how it handles with TT settings. Not such a good memories with this car. Animera knows what i mean. Can you remember, Ian.


    Thanks Kev.

    I'm afraid I cannot recall it Dennis. Was it the race we had in one of the GTP competitions?

    Wow, crazy to recall that Ian was once in D3. Then again, so was CT. And Maz was D2.

    Looking forward to giving the 512BB one last go on Prologue. This was immensely enjoyable in my 4 or 5 test laps used for the pictures. :tup:

    They made a big step forward. Proofs that WRS is an excellent place to improve your driving. About a couple of months ago, i started to participate more often and it really helped me out. Got a better feeling with the car. Tips from other people helped alot aswell. Thanks CT, the one who helped out the most and giving me the confidence and the others offcourse. You know who you are.

    Kev and Vaxen, thanks for al that work you put in.

    Hope i find some time in abit to do a couple of laps.

    Definately, they deserve it.

    Thank you for organizing the WRS, and thank you fellow participants, because I wouldn't be playing GT5P now.:tup:

    Now, let's send GT5P out with a bang. :)

    Wish I could compete Kevin- I can now, unlike my .zip file issues of before- but I've got too much right now with school and all. Good luck to everyone, and thanks to the OLR team for making me a better driver while I was here.

    Got to disassemble my DFGT pedals. Just tried to combo and every time I apply the brakes they stay on a fraction after I come off. Got to use my foot to pull it it back up slightly.
    Here's my splits with the issue so far.

    T1: 23.963
    T2: 1'02.970

    Kinda funny watching the replay and seeing brake lights for over 50% of the lap

    Yes please!!! I'll be here. I remember back in the day running the 512bb around Fuji for the 550pp event. What great fun it was.

    I'll be having a run in the next day or two :D

    Had a quick go last night, what fun! I've driven the car once or twice on N3's, its an entertaining motor. Even more suprising was that I was straight on the pace :D (1.01.xxx T2 despite a very poor lap) I must have learnt something with the Evora.

    It's going to be a great week, although fully expecting CT to blow us all away :p

    I know what you mean. I had the same with the DFGT and the older DFGT. It will cost you time. Even when i came out the corner full throttle my braking light where flickering. Besides the fact it cost you time it's very annoing for the poeple behind you.

    I'm affraid you have to buy a new wheel.
