    Well this must be the first time that I saw a 4 hour gap between the posting of a new WRS week and the posting of the first reply to it :D

    Finally a combo that's slow enough for me to prepare for any bend in the track ... :)

    As an unofficial timekeeper of WRS I take the freedom to look back at the first series of races within WRS in Prologue. I've been looking at all the previous combos and found out that as of this week we've now officially visited every track in every direction and variety that Prologue offers us:

    London fwd 2 rev 1
    Eiger fwd 1 rev 2
    Daytona ring 1 road 1
    Suzuka track 3 east 1
    Fuji GT 1 F1
    HSR fwd 1 rev 1

    So for the statistics among us - calculate the next track to visit :lol:

    I wonder how long PD and Kaz will keep us waiting, dreaming and begging for a new track in Prologue :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

    First run.

    T1 - 36.297
    T2 - 1'03.160

    Very slow car, but also very difficult to keep the car on the race line due to the N3's. Nice combo.:tup:

    No, not every event is an online free run. Sometimes there are Time trials that need to be done offline, or a race with the AI cars.

    Usually some of the tuning garages provide tunes for the online free run and AI combo's.:tup: I hate tuning cars also, so I just wait for the tunes.:lol:

    Tuning cars is fun. I often stumble across some thing by accident that improves my time by .5-1 second

    First foray into this one - I haven't the first clue for tuning on FWD cars. :dunce:
    The biggest challenge is staying awake during the long pull uphill through the tunnel. :dopey:

    My first 10 laps:

    0'36.638
    1'04.724

    Sure hope someone posts a decent tune for this - I honestly have no idea how you guys are picking up so much time in split 2 on me.

    When we had the C4 here I turned off the ABS and saved about 2 seconds per lap. It doesn't work (with the pad) on the quick cars, but it did with the C4, try it, might help you.

    I haven't tried it without ABS yet. I did notice the gear settings can really make or break you in this combo.

    First update after some help on tuning:

    0'36.331
    1'03.308

    A few notes - I think the weight gets reset to 100 when you exit so be careful there and turning ABS off didn't help me so much but I can see how it might help others.

    Well, I got in the car, and with just some minor gearing, and cross checking my times, I realised I could do a little more practice.:lol: Half an hour later, and a proper tune (minus the gears which I'm still tweaking, the power band is so narrow there is one ultimately crucial part of the track where one gear in particular must be spot on, and I'm not done tweaking it yet, it could drop tenths if you've done it right) and I have my splits to post up. Note, I changed to 1st gear at the 2nd turn, and even if it is faster to do it that way I did it pretty much I was exiting and lost an instant tenth on my ghost, which I made back at turn 3.:crazy:

    T1- '36.282
    T2- 1'03.134

    Look below for new splits


    When I'm finished the tune, I'll let you all know, but this week will be by request via PM only if you'd like my tune. You can start lodging your interest now if you like, just send me a PM telling me you're interested in my Copen tune for WRS 16.:)

    The gearing is crucial, had a 36.6xx at one point in T1.

    I have completed my tune now, as I said just before though it is on requet only this week, please PM me if you haven't already and if you are interested in my tune for this week's race.:)

    New Splits:
    T1- 36.113
    T2- 1'03.068



    For those who have messaged me already, I'll be sending the tune shortly.:) I wonder, if my tune is really that good (given I currently have the fastest split to T2 and I'm not very fast), just how long it will be before someone overtakes me again.:sly:

    Yup, the gearing's very crucial.:tup:

    I'm doing something wrong in T1, I've noticed wheelspin coming out of Turn 2. I used Paulie's set-up, didn't work for me. My T2 time is decent, I'm losing out in T1.

    36.654
    1'03.643

    Some improvement:

    T1: 0'36.685
    T2: 1'03.780

    After testing with some of the drivers, I adapted my tune a bit and came up with this. Hope it helps you shave off a bit of time. :)
