    Steward's Comments:
    A change of pace from the last time we were here, with one of the more unusual looking cars in the game. The Dome is fairly approachable here, for those looking to master this track, but be careful, the harbor is never too far away...

    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 in PM's 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 & 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.


    [​IMG]

    Submission:


    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 175 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, May 29th 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:

    Don't think I've ever competed around Monaco! But I may have, have a vague memory of something round here

    Cool. No idea what to expect from this car, I have genuinely never heard of it.

    Does anyone know the last time we ran Monaco? Would love to see if I have competed here before

    If you go to the WRS Leader board and click your name it will list every WRS race you have entered and the results. You'll have to click the Entry name to see where that WRS was run, but the name might give you a hint/reminder.

    Last race here.

    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/gtp_wrs-week-132-screaming-monaco.348268/

    I had a quick glance and it does not look like you have run any WRS TT's here.

    Other GT6 events here were weeks 7, 51 and 91.

    Seems like we make it here every 40 weeks or so.

    "Custom Wheels Allowed" means +1/+2 inches wheel allowed?

    I'm sorry Mr. Hayashi. Haven't tried it yet. Your car is surely everything but charming

    Thanks bud.

    I seem to remember doing something at Monaco but probably never submitted. Up to my old banzai tricks no doubt and never had a time worth submitting.

    Not going to happen this week!

    Splits from my test session, brakes at 4/5:

    31.117
    1'22.067

    Gears set very tight but probably need a little adjustment, here they are anyway!

    Set final to 5.500
    Set Max speed to minimum (112mph/180km/h)
    Set individual gears

    1st 2.240
    2nd 1.586
    3rd 1.307
    4th 1.086
    5th 0.904
    Final 5.000 (this might need to be slightly lower coming out of the tunnel)

    I also like taking loads of photos in the test run and end up picking from those, here are some others which turned out nicely :D

    Nice read :tup: I did think this car reminded me of the Countach and the Esprit Turbo HC with that pointed nose. I think it was @Gravitron that called this car a 'doorstop' :lol:

    The gearbox in stock form felt a bit gutless going up the first hill, and keeping the ratios tight allows for a slightly more MR style on the throttle :) probably should've mentioned the adjustment following the first post, I can see why it'd be easy to miss :ouch:

    Yes, Fetchy won't read numbers within quote tags, but spoiler tags are no protection. :cool:

    Ok this one might kill me this week, another London style fast and furious, whenever set a good first sector along come the jitters for the next..

    New splits, will revisit soon enough, watching it back there's loads of time and a lot of sloppy driving

    I never have liked this track :sick: It has to be the most technical in the game :crazy: So it's a good opportunity to get better at it.

    @mcsqueegy I deleted your transmission gear splits from the board, so you will need to re-post the actual time splits, or post new ones. ;)

    This has always been a favorite because it is so technical.

    There are no runoffs or grassy strips; it's all about being clean between the armcos and it's all about totally committing some of these turns, especially Sainte Devote (T1), Nouvelle Chicane (T10 & 11), Tabac (T12), and the final turn at Antony Noghes (T17-18). Nail 'em, and your lap time drops significantly, miss 'em and you scrap the lap.
