Steward's Comments:
I'm visiting @EDK this weekend for the big game/party, and we had fun coming up with this combo over "a few" beers. :D Big thanks to him for the great hospitality! :bowdown:

We went with power limiter 88% to keep it from topping out on the straight, instead of changing the gearbox, which would ruin the glorious howl of the engine.


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 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual split times, 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
Splits Sharing

  • WRS Participants have traditionally shared splits as a way to reveal their pace without providing the full lap time until the event deadline. Posting of splits is not mandatory, but is considered fair sportsmanship.
  • WRS Admins reserve the right to request posting of splits from members who show a pattern of avoidance or deception in this area.
  • If you fail to comply with a direct request from an admin to post splits for a current or future event, we reserve the right to disqualify your lap from the results.


All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 160 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:

  • The deadline is Monday, February 13th 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, :gtplanet:

Then his son totaled it :eek:
My kids have crashed my real-life cars beyond anything I saw while I was learning to drive, in snowy Montana with my manual transmission Ford Granada '78 . :ouch: I don't get angry very easily, but it's a bit sad to see your kids be dumber than you were, at their age. :dunce: I'm glad they are still alive!

I tried to get Kev to take the Challenger out, since it's almost 50F and the snow is melting fast. :P

Looks like an awesome combo to play around with. Nice track (almost my favourite track...seems to be missing some turns :odd::lol:) and one of the most iconic cars of all time :drool:.

I can see me putting more miles than usual into this one....but will it be enough to creep up the board a bit!? :dopey:.

Consider my OCD pacified. 👍 Hopefully I'll find some time to run this combo later in the week, Monday through Wednesday is spent on campus for 10-12 hours a day. :yuck:

Loving the pictures, guys. :cheers:

@Mr P Ron, I removed your bogus splits from the board, and I can see the splits you had up momentarily before you blanked 'em. :P You've been a great benchmarker and you've been helping keep this area of GTP alive, so I would hope you wouldn't feel the need to keep your splits a secret until Monday deadline. Don't sink to that level. :D

First couple of laps....I want 5th gear!!

Drives like my 65....only faster. I had a notchback 289 with a Hi-po kit(271 hp cobra kit.. the normal 289 output was 200 hp which for the inventor of the Pony Cars which evolved into "muscle cars" and the incredible Trans-Am series, was more than enough for the average bear) and koni's on the front which decreased front end float above 85ish. Thanks for the combo....ah the first time I drove it around Lime Rock...slowly.
Hats off for last week's combo''s guys,thank you.
I've planned a week of no wrs for this week but can't let this 1 go.
Propably no good result or negative handicap this week,I'm on the zomby squad (night shift) the entire week :lol:
