    Race Specifics:
    • The event MUST be run using your registered account
    • The use of the clutch that is found on the G25, G27, and other high end racing wheels is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • Tarmac and Red and White Rumble Strips are Track
    • Runoff Surfaces behind rumble strips are NOT TRACK. Most of these are Green in Color, but there are several varying surfaces throughout the track. ONLY Tarmac and Rumble Strips (Red and White) count as track.
    Steward's Comments:
    I'm calling up a couple of things from the bench for this combo. First, the Cusco Subaru. The original RWD Cusco Suby, from GT4. A legendary GT300 Favorite on that platform. Second, the concept of a power upgraded GT300 car on RM tires at Fuji. Last introduced 3 years ago on this GT5 combo. We end up with a perfect balance of slip and grip, while having the ultra wide confines of Fuji to put it all together. Don't worry about the tuning, there will be plenty of good tunes posted, and this car is a good one out of the gate. :tup:


    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

    View attachment 197353

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 29 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, August 11th 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

    First splits, I will post my tune tomorrow. This was done with a decent transmission, min ride height, toe zero on both ends, camber 1 in the back.

    21.017
    52.067

    Really not a very pretty lap, but I am going to hang it out there.

    I was just getting sad that the GT300 online special event was over and we get this gem.
    Can't wait to get started.

    Howdy Y'all! I'm back. :D
    Finally my life and work have settled down enough so I can get back to WRSing. :tup:

    Kev, this combo totally rocks! :cool:
    Getting to run at Fuji F brings back many fond GT5 Prologue memories. This is going to be a really fun week y'all. :cheers:

    Seen .5s in T1 and a .8 in T2. Took a bit of fiddling to stop the car biting my head off at every hint of throttle :boggled:

    Fuji F..nice.
    F stands for fun.
    Or for frustration,messin'up a good lap in de very last corner before the straight,and beaten by your own ghost by an inch at the S/F :banghead:
    Too bad about the tires.
    Sport soft would have been nice.
    Good luck.

    First splits after 5-10 laps:

    20.769
    51.219

    Camber and toe to 0, gearbox and downforce tune, but other than that, stock.

    Here's a basic setup I made - seems to work ok - fairly stable - feel free to steal, improve, etc

    As ever with this track, the time to be found is in the last sector. Don't get too hung up about losing a tenth in turn 1 :)

    10 laps done, missed the apex in turn 1, didn't carry enough speed through turn 4 and sector 3 was rubbish :lol:

    20.768
    51.135

    Edit: Oh - this combo is brilliant, btw. Seriously brilliant. Can't beat a bit of Fuji

    Did you notice it has a stage 3 power upgrade and 416 HP?

    I agree that SS is manageable on stock GT300 cars, but this car is closer to being a GT500, than a 300. I did test with RH, and it was fine. I just wanted that little bit more grip when putting down the power in the tight sections.

    Yeah - RH or RM is perfect given the extra power, IMHO :tup:

    It's also FR, this one, not 4WD like the premium version - which makes it even more workable on the racing tyre.

    Traction out of the super tight hairpin requires care, not huge amounts - but you've certainly got to be precise, this is no foot-masher :)

    Don't know my exact splits but at T2 is saw high 50.



    No he probably didn't. With his left eye he looks in his right pocket :lol:


    You can put your foot down pretty early aslong as you straighten up the car enough
