    Steward's Comments:

    There's something about Italy that seems to capture Kaz's imagination. And ours. Go have fun with the creator's ride!

    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 3 sectors: T1, T2, and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 141 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 141 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 141 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, August 10th 2020 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,

    I like this combo, very much.

    It's not the grip, per say, that I like, it's not the car or the track individually, it's the whole thing!
    Nice flowing track that takes concentration and real learning of the lines and shift-points. Altitude changes, blind corners over crests, late braking and down-shift only corners. It's got the lot!
    Nice car with enough grip to make it corner well at speed, but tricky enough on the power to need throttle control and finesse to get round the longer corners, and tricky out of slow corners too.

    Good job on this one guys!!!!!:bowdown::gtpflag:

    A combo featuring a Dummy Thicc Turbo Brick? Should finally be something to tear me away from Dirt Rally 2.0

    Considering that this thing is as slippery as a piglet covered in dripping at a hog wrestling contest, I am having quite good fun seeing how many of the corner marker cones I can hit in one session..:lol:

    new slightly better splits with BB@0 and TCS @ 0 for the whole lap now.

    30.059
    27.316
    28.599

    not great, but better than I expected.

    I'm guessing the rear grip isn't quite there then? :lol::lol:

    It's fine in 3rd gear, and the need for 2nd is debatable.

    I haven't tried it yet, good to note, would imagine it still has plenty of pull in 3rd.

    Yeah pulls ok in 3rd, but still has a tendency to spin up the inner rear without warning, if you ain't on the ball throttle-wise.
    But it's mainly the severe lack of front grip, despite all of that aero-work on the front of it. All probably down to the diff causing it to push instead of turn.
    Wish we could tune just the diffs in these TT's.:)

    First attempt, lots of manhandling required from my experience so far.

    Not sure what to make of this car? Very sensitive under full throttle, even at higher speeds.

    It made it this long without being used for a reason. But it is actually good here, compared to the other cars we tried. :lol:

    We are pretty much at the point of just using whatever cars and tracks make sense, rather than trying to use up the remaining inventory.

    It took me 20+ laps to figure it out somewhat. I was really off of the pace when I started out with this combo. It may grow on me...:tup:

    Decent last sector and a very slight improvement at the line. Those last two corners...

    Fastest second sector I’ve done so far, and the other splits are decent. Took a couple of sessions to get a lap I was happy with, luckily I’ve been enjoying this combo despite the heat.

    Like seriously, way too hot, I’m sweating like mad and I had a fan pointing at me the whole time. :lol:

    Not sure if you'll like the RX7, but we do have a tuning event planned for the following week.

    Historically, tuning events have had lower turnout, but I am hoping that the base tune I made will help with that.

    I am actually a tuner by nature, but I am also willing to drive around faults.
