    • White lines denote track boundary except where backed by rumble strips.

    Steward's Comments:

    One of my favourite manufacturers with a long standing connection to a well know fictional ( or is he? ) secret agent know for his licence to kill. This time however, Q has handed the keys to Bond's favourite ride to you and it's the mountain that needs killing with a fast lap time.

    Good luck agents!

    Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
    • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
    • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
    • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.
    • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
    • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If you’re still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if you’re still undecided, run the lap again.

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private IM service.):
    • Total Lap Time.
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total lap time.
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 3 sectors: T1, T2 and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 28 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      X:XX.XXX
      (Example-) 1:10.100
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, you no longer have the ability to export the files.
    • 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 just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, June 11th 2018 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:
    • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via the GT Sport Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Replay Verify Required).
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

    Thankfully we are not running sport hard tires. Got a basic tune going, will share later when I’m more comfortable with it. Really struggling with the braking on this one, heavy car, barreling down hill, watch out.

    Yay, Bathurst! Most Aussies have some sort of affinity with this track...though i found knowing a track inside out doesn't necessarily translate to good times in game. However, keen to give this a go as I have spent hours on this track in various cars since the relase of GT Sport...

    The V8 Supercar series will never be the same, now that we don't make Falcons or Commodores here anymore it will have a bit of a different flavour...

    awesome combo!

    I remember we ran it in GT6 with 4 extra cylinders.
    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/gtp_wrs-week-92-from-australia-with-love.336902/

    Also had a lot of fun making the pics for that combo so i thought it would be fun to revisit it and see how gtsport photomode stacks up agains the gt6 photomode.

    Like driving on ice! Still, guess it's my own fault for trying a few laps of this directly after half an hour with the Ferrari. Here are the highlights of my first lap...

    Man, I love this track, but unfortunately June is the busiest month ever for me, youngest graduating this weekend, wife and I are road tripping to Salt Lake city for 10 days leaving next Sunday, and graduation party at end of June, so I will be officially out until at least July. I will miss competing for the next month. :cheers:

    Good luck guys. I won't be running this one. Headed out of town in the morning.

    Don't forget to put wall collision to strict and invalidate.

    Goodluck everyone this week! I'm taking this week off from the time trials to prepare for some endurance racing and working on race strategy ect with fuel and tire wear.

    Certainly looks like a fun combo as the rcz gr4 was ran here last time which was a lot of fun so I can imagine this would be a fun combo as Well! Best of luck :cheers:

    no prob, my first time "tuning" a car though :p

    BB 1

    Suspension:
    100/100
    1,75/1,75
    6/6
    62/62
    91/91
    0,5/0,5
    0.05/0.05

    As for the LSD -> 9/15/8 and a stock gearbox

    To me I dont feel a difference since I normally run my cars bone stock but maybe you might feel something different? Like i said, it's my first time fiddling with the settings, so uhh... yeah...

    Also idk if I could edit this in the post with my time in it so I made a new one :cheers:

    Thanks for posting that, we encourage sharing and don't worry about being a tuner or not hardly any of us here would claim to be tuners but we do like sharing info. It adds to the sense of community :cheers:

    Way to timid in the last two sectors, something to work on.
