    Steward's Comments:


    Back in October of 2011 (Division 4 Bronze) I started my Time Trial Journey! The combo was GTP_WRS (GT5) Week 35 : Weds Forest. I finished dead last almost 7 seconds off the pace, GTP_Rutter200 had the winning time of 1’12.325. It didn’t matter where I finished….. I was hooked! This week to celebrate 150 weeks in a row or to roll your eyes at me (That’s what my wife did!!!) we revisit this combo in the reverse direction. Great car (Super GT) lots of grip and one of my favourite original tracks. To add some colour we will be using the base model for the on-line races, the "Weds" version must be used for the TT!

    I am positive that I would not have lasted this long if it wasn't for the Admins/Stewards and the people who compete week to week in this community. You are all awesome! I can't go on without giving a big shout out to my wife for putting up with this for the last 3 years! She is more than awesome, she bought my entire rig and the PS3 so I guess she shares some of the blame for the big bum divot in the couch!

    As the week progresses I will try to post some highlights of the last 150 weeks. Thanks again to the admins for allowing me to choose the combos for Week 100 and this one for Week #150!!!!! Will I make it to 200 in a row???? Stay tuned!

    Al. AKA “Obsessed with TT’s!”

    TUNES:
    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 40 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, October 27th 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:

    There were only three things certain in life: death, taxes, and Al doing a WRS time trial. :cheers:

    Epic effort Al - well done :tup:

    Seemed rude not to throw a few laps down, although this is a tuning week so I won't be able to keep up with the pace of progress as the event marches on. In the mean time though, here's some splits with a very rudimentary set-up

    22.167
    49.017

    First splits:

    21.700
    48.216

    About .050 left in sector 1, and I lost over a tenth on my other lap in sector 2. Hoping to be in the 47s by the end.


    Absolutely awesome combo!:bowdown:

    Was going to report splits, but have been driving the wrong direction. :dunce:

    Here's my tune, should still work.

    Off to find some splits in my preferred direction of DF.

    And, looked at @Cats_PJs tune for some ideas. Changed my trans final to match his at 3900, was already on the fence as to whether my top was too high and in this direction, it helps to maintain speed in 5th for turn 1.

    I also changed my rear toe to -0.10 and rear camber to 1.2.

    Came up with these.

    I think that's a T1 typo. Maybe 21.790?
