    Steward's Comments:

    Forgive us for not going back to Big Willow before coming here, but I needed to find a fit for the Rocket, and this fits like a glove. @Mr P requested a reprise of this car, and who are we to argue. :sly: Stock settings with SM tires, I think you'll find this one tricky but fun!


    Viewing your Time Splits:

    • You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Home' and watch the replay from there using the 'Gallery' option.
    • Live timing monitor does not work properly, so we have to use a small trick to view splits.
    • While viewing your Replay, pause the lap by hitting start, before the end of the first sector.
    • While keeping the replay paused, advance the replay, using the forward arrow on the replay HUD. This will advance the replay to the end of the first sector. That's your T1 split, write it down.
    • Advance the replay again. That will show the lap to date time on the screen, this is your first and second sector time, added together.
    • To post your T1 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, the Fetchbot will do that for you.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules:

    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times.

      • In situations where contact with the track is not possible because tires are airborne (above the ground), then the run is only legal if at least two tires in-line would have made contact with the track if the car were not airborne.
      • If track contact cannot be 100% determined, then consider it dirty.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track.
    • No contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • If you're not 100% sure that your lap is clean, then consider it dirty
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind,these are relaxed races and we are experienced racers, we know what times can be done,and we can read your mind.We will know.
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on MSN or via other private conversation methods):

    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :

    • The first 2 splits: T1 and T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]
    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 150 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):

    • Then attach your 'Best Lap'/'Ghost' replay in zip file form. Everyone submits a replay instead of listing a lap time.
    • You will need to put something in the message body in order to begin a conversation. It doesn't matter what you put, it can even be 1 letter or symbol. Nobody but the Fetchbot is going to see it, so it's sort of pointless, anyhow.
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • 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 XX Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week XX Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week that is still not a problem. Just reply to the conversation with your new time and new replay. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • See this screenshot as an example on how to submit:
    [​IMG]


    • The deadline is Monday, December 5th 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:


    • Everyone is required to submit a replay for verification. This happens when you submit to the Fetchbot, and the replays will be visible in the leaderboard, once we've reached the event deadline
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Good luck, :gtpflag:

    Hopefully I will be able to give this combo a proper go. Unfortunately had to abandon the R8, not enough time to get a solid lap unfortunately.

    Didn't take long to get these so maybe there's loads left... on the other hand I've beaten T1 once since and always lose a quarter of a second plus in T2, so it was probably just a lucky lap. :lol:

    Great combo. :tup:

    Hi,

    I've a question about the boundary rules on the final corner: does the white line in the picture matter or should I just not hit the cones in this corner?

    cheers,

    If that's the out side of the last turn the cones are track limit as I see it.

    The Cones are the boundary on the last turn and that line is just for decoration :)

    btw tested going outside the boundary before the lap started to see what was doable and it's easy to go an extra 10-20mph+ faster over the start line.. best speed I got for a legal attempt was 90mph over the start line and way way over 100mph with the extra speed due to the silly limits behind those cones... I know I will be getting my best save on a lap 1 so I save 2 replays when i get a decent effort in, I save the fast lap and the session just to stop any suggestions if I manage to scream over the start line :D worst part of this track as seen in the seasonal events there :tdown:

    GLA :cheers:

    And the reason for this bullet in the OP -

    • Breaking boundary rules on the final corner of the lap prior to your best lap is strictly forbidden. We will make cursory checks of Start/Finish line speed on all replays, and will disqualify outliers.

    To everyone's point, that particular line does not count. It designates the boundary to a corner that's off in the other direction, the direction we are not traveling. :)

    And a more detailed reply from me here from back in May. :lol:

    And that bullet is from the qualifier, hence the "cursory check" comment.

    Since we've been right around 15 submissions lately, we're easily in position to check ALL the replays. If someone is going a speed at SFL that's not possible without cheating, we'll DQ them.

    We're not going to turn this into the sham of a competition that is the seasonal events. :tup:

    Another chance with the Rocket - I mean I did submit a valid lap back then, but I ran quite a lot of laps without following the boundary rules at first.

    I thought 10 laps wouldn't be nearly enough, but the 11th was... a start.

    Noticed in my own leader board the last time I ran this track was with a Renault in January 2014 :lol: (GT6 qualifier) so this may take a while finding some pace.

    Stopped as my wheel started making never heard / seldom heard noise (the noise paused for a while). Well, was about finished by then.

    I know, I wish just the splits could be removed from the HUD.

    I've tried just driving without any of the HUD, but I find the gauges to be too important. That's both for shifting (Tach) and knowing where the car is based on the gauges. (Bumper Cam FTW).

    Tried that, specially cockpit view on some sports cars at Nurb, lovely at night, but no good for racing.
    Split watching gets at it's worst when the split is immediatly before a braking point.
