    Steward's Comments:

    Were back at Monza but this time without the pesky chicane and with what I believe is probably one of the most perfect Ferrari's ever made. With the body designed by Pininfarina this car was Enzo Ferrari's parting gift to the world of automotive propeller heads and lovers of beauty, he certainly made a statement!

    Hope you enjoy this combo as much as I did testing it.

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 46 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 46 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 46 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, October 15th 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.

    Tips for this week:

    1) It's an old car with old suspension technology and it doesn't like sudden changes in direction so be gentle.
    2) Brake early and I really do mean early.
    3) I ran BB 0 and it seemed OK but may benefit from +1.
    4) Change at the red line, don't over rev

    --------------------< ADVANCE NOTICE >-----------------------

    We will be putting up a combo within the next few weeks that will require one of the more expensive cars specifically the Ford GT40 Mark 1 '66 which costs 2,800,000 credits. Whilst we appreciate this is quite a sum we are giving 2 weeks notice to allow you to gather the credits and, two tried and tested (by yours truly today) options using the revised tyre model that will hopefully speed up your credit earning. Both options take around 12 minutes per run so in less than 2 hours you will have than the amount needed.

    To get to the race from the main screen in GTSport take the following;

    GT League -> Professional League -> Premium Sports Lounge -> Race 1 Blue Moon Bay

    Run the race without TC or aids other than ABS which you can set however you prefer. It's an easy track so a no aids race should be approachable by almost everyone but if you are having trouble shout up and I'll do what I can to help.

    This bit is important; you MUST run a clean race and that means absolutely no contact with cars or walls and no running out of bounds.

    1) The high risk option worth 375,000 credits (includes 50% clean race bonus and 150% car handicap bonus)
    I ran this three time and got one successful run where I gathered the maximum payback and based on this my personal suggestion is go for the slightly lower risk option as it will likely give a higher return for time invested but that said, this one is a bit of a challenge and who can resist that?

    Car: KTM X-Bow R '12

    Spec:

    KTM Spec v2.jpg
    Credit to @CORRUPTEDDISC for this tune that I tweaked to give a slightly better gearbox to overcome some of the reduced pace that the new tyre model brought.

    2) The safe option worth 345,000 credits (includes 50% clean race bonus and 130% car handicap bonus)
    I have never yet failed to gain the full credit haul with this option and it is my go to method that may return less than the X-Bow option but is way more reliable for me.

    Car: Porsche 911GT3 RS (991) '16

    Spec:

    Happy farming :cheers:

    I had about 20 laps earlier and didn’t save the replay, but man I’m enjoying the chase thus far. The brakes suck and turning into curva grande at 185 is flat out scary, but I’m loving every lap. Monza is so much more fun to hotlap than Fuji.

    Here is a video of how to do it with the Porsche. I actually use the X-Bow, have over 100 victories and more than 5000 km on the odometer. But level 50 still looks so far away.

    Initial shakedown. Parabolica that is giving me fits (same as always) but especially so in this car. I can't seem to take it the same way two laps in a row.:crazy: BB 0

    26.802

    Impressive first splits :bowdown:

    Awesome combo! Well it is for me. I've been practising this track for hours for another league Race on Oz, in the R92. So I might fare better than usual this week. First few laps seem good, still plenty of time to find, another half second I think.

    Nice sector time Mike, damn chicanes at Monza always loose me .5 and upwards, I've never been able to get smooth and back on the gas quick enough.

    Thanks! It's all about the entry Phillip. This one needs finesse which is your speciality but you have to be in good shape to take that chicane without too much steering input then you can carry your speed through and into lesmo 1 & 2 without having to be quick on the gas. I'm braking before the 200 marker and going through in 2nd :tup:

    You need to make a new post with revised split times. Editing your splits in an old post does not update the board ;)
