    Steward's Comments:
    My plan since 6 months ago was to use the SRT Viper '13 when this track came up for rotation, as an updated/GT6 version of Snake in the Road, which was a GT5 WRS-Online race only, not a time trial. Tested the Viper in February, it ran great stock on SM tires. The 1.09 update hit, now all the Vipers are boats. :irked: So in looking for a replacement I was chucking the RUF CTR2 around and loved it. :) It comes stock with Racing Hard suspension which allows adjustments to ride height and camber, and you can add the Torque-Distributing Center Diff to adjust front-to-rear power.


    Viewing your T1, T2 & T3 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 and T3 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 3 splits: T1, T2 & T3 times
    • Any settings discussion


    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 33 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, September 8th 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, :gtplanet:

    The car is crazy fast.
    I'm starting to find some lines now. The track feels like someone built an oval and then just rerouted to some service roads on the inside. Silly Americans :)

    Gave this a good run so I could learn the track...

    24.363
    47.094
    1'05.798

    Car is pretty forgiving stock, but once I turned down rear ride height it becomes a true RUF :D

    Started this challenge tonight... Times thus far:
    25.650
    49.133
    1'08.416

    Edit: Seems Fetchy doesn't like something on my setup. Got a message saying "Transmission3 setting is invalid" - Any ideas? Running stock setup with settings as posted above by allibubba99 (did not touch the transmission).

    Did you change the rims to a bigger size? I heard that can affect the transmission settings. The other thing it could be, is if you bought it before the 1.09 update, you may have to reset the settings.
