    Steward's Comments:
    This is a nice change of pace for you this week. 1 Minute-ish laps, and a nice, easy drive. The tire setup takes away the characteristic Front Wheel Drive understeer, and makes braking distances short, with only a small lift needed for some of the fastest corners. This was one of the first cars to use the highly acclaimed Nissan SR20DE Engine. It's also the stock motor in the B13 Nissan Sentra SE-R, a favorite in Autocross and Grass Roots Racing. I've gone with weight reduction on this car to bring it down to the actual curb weight of an SE-R. Credit to @Gravitron for the title. You may not realize, Red Bull has Infinti emblazoned on their side pods, and Vettel is apparently their "Director of Performance".


    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 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 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 & T2 times
    • Any settings discussion


    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 21 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 body: "get entry"
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the body of "remove entry".
    • 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, June 16th 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 choice and no tuning so can just get to it without messing with the settings. After many laps in the 97T this week, it will be a nice change of pace.

    Sorry, looks like I fiddled with this car at one time, to get it to the weight of the aforementioned Sentra.

    I've altered the first post, to show 1,028 kg weight, which is a Stage 3 weight reduction.

    Now I know why I was so much faster than Lucas when we were testing. :lol:

    Thanks, will fix that as well. I went in thinking it was stock weight, but looks like that's not the case. :)

    I can see why you were so much faster than Lucas, it nets out to almost 2 seconds faster with weight reduction. 20 laps in and already finding it difficult to find time. Time to play with where to shift and brake balance. The leaderboards should be very tight this week, which is a good thing for all involved.

    It occurred to me how the Primera isn't in the lineup.
    Tyres placed, mass reduced.
    edit: Primera totally is, misremembering.

    Looking forward to this one. Missed last week as I hadn't unlocked the car, and am away next week, so happy to not have to mess with tuning this week.

    For anyone not familiar with the best way around this track here is a replay from @Vagabond that uses a car with similar pace to this week's car. As always, every time I watch his laps I am envious of how smoothly he brakes into and then accelerates out of a turn.
