    Steward's Comments:
    @GTP_Nail Ned has taught us a lot through his posts and over the mic in online rooms. :bowdown: The guy is an encyclopedia of racing experiences that boggle the mind. It's about time for a nice little race car so we picked his favorite from the Triple Mix.

    Maybe we'll pull it out at his weekly Sunday Nurb room. :D


    Viewing your T1 & T2 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 & T2 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.
    [​IMG]


    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 1 splits: T1 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.

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 162 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, February 27th 11:59pm GMT
    • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site
    [​IMG]


    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:

    Early split for me, still working on a tune.

    19.216

    Lots of options on the tune, I set that lap with a 5 speed gearbox and low downforce.

    High DF with differences in Bold. Basically less mechanical grip.

    Realized I forgot to include my adjusted final drive in the tune posts. :lol:

    I am using 3140 for a 5 speed that uses 3/4/5, a 6 speed that uses 4/5/6 works with 3800 final.

    I think the 5 speed helps with mid-corner speed, but I could be imagining things.

    Using the scubby in patriottic orange ... :)

    20.012

    Playing with DF and ballast distribution ... it's all about fast corner speed I guess.
    Will try Kevin's setup later.

    Nice combo!

    Had to have a go here :tup:

    Not a very fancy setup, probably more time to find by just adjusting a few things... but the lap itself was great all things considered :lol:

    Think Kev's is faster in the corners but mine ( @MadMax ) is a better race car. Will use one here and the other on track.
    Edit: two thousandths here but faster at line. Also forgot to add ballast at first and it took some serious flailing to best that damn light ghost on the straights. Will use Kev's tune but removed a dite on the wings.

    Going for quick t1 isn't the best idea.
    Else 18.764 but .004 slower at the line.
    Another .1 is possible for me but not too easy :lol:
