    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 Skype 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 3 splits: T1, T2, and T3 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 182 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, July 17th 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:

    @EDK Could I ask how you managed to see your first split time? I think because I am viewing the best lap replay from the gallery it isn't allowing me to use the usual technique.

    I replayed from the TT screen.

    You should still be able to back up to it, though.

    It just goes back to 1.5s after the start, so I've just made one up for now.

    Hi,

    what an awesome week. I couldn't (wouldn't) take part in the last few weeks because my "raceroom" is in the attic where it's too hot in these days.
    But I hope to do a few laps now. Oh wait, did I say 'laps'? :gtpflag:

    what a pain in my eyes. No car is more britisch than the (old) Mini.

    cheers,
    D.

    So easy to hit the hay bails, but the combo grows on you after a while.

    Now that I've viewed the replay straight after the run I can see the first split. So I'd say each time you improve to at least watch the replay and take your splits down.

    Wow, the ghost here is really weird, it doesn't appear until you cross the line a little way in front of your car. That means it's possible to be ahead of your time but still have the ghost getting in the way (if having the ghost on is your thing).

    Hope you like this. I loaded up my car list in order used, and this was not too far down. I recalled when you suggested and we tested it a bit in the beer room on Friday.

    I found it fun and too appropriate to avoid!

    Next week we'll dig out a track from that same night of testing. ;)

    The handling's a little weird at first with these tyres, but yeah, it's a really nice combo.

    Ooh, cryptic! :p

    I will admit I changed to the stagger when I did not like the way the stock CM tires launched, and I liked it straight away so did not try anything else.

    But I don't think you could take that final right hander flat without the stagger. ;)

    Yes that's the reason why I think this is one of the best cases for stagger... from a perspective of no comparisons.

    A very frustrating first session and 50 miles in... This is going to be very hard to get a very good time
    I know is say this every week, but finding time around a tt like this is one of the toughest challenges we get

    No idea how people are in the low 8s. I'm shifting when Mph hits around 30....

    I'm flooring it and shifting into 2nd at 32. The first split is also really easy to get for your splits posts, just start a new run after checking 2 and 3 then post the real first sector that your ghost did.

    8.470 (??? wasn't the best but somewhere between .450 and .480 - think it was .465 if I remember correctly)
    30.000
    48.407
    there's around .25-.3 left up to t3 but not in the final ;)

    EDIT: started without engine tuning and thought "OK, almost full throttle combo? Why not."

    Hi,

    tricky lefthander after second split. Going wild and sideways, not the best line so far.

    cheers,

    Well, I think I figured out the start, low RPM (under 3k seems to work best, not sure about the precise amount) but flooring it when the car is released, seen a high .3 there. Also hadn't noticed that last right could be taken flat, .702 up. :dunce::dopey::lol:

    Never played this track before apart from the special events in single player. Having fun so far but I need to practice the launch and third sector.

    I think traction control is better for the launch. Will need to do some more testing with it but I'm now hitting high .3s every time.

    Last time we used this track, with the Merc 300SL, we forced traction control off. Probably should have done the same here, oops.

    EDIT: Changed OP to forbid Traction Control
