Steward's Comments:
We're celebrating the GT6 first love 1 year anniversary with this hardcore event.



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 split times, 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 and T2 times
  • Any settings discussion

Submission:
All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 48 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:

  • The deadline is Monday, December 22nd 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

I predict a lot of thrown away laps this week due to run ins with barriers.:ouch:

12.833
36.417

Guessing the splits won't tell much this week seeing that all the tricky bits are in the last sector.

Also, I've already tried using the non-existent KERS.:lol:

This week is going to be fun.

Just a warning. You can't use the car that you won when it came out as the default settings have changed. I just sent my replay to Fetchy to check and he replied:

CamberFront setting is invalid
CamberRear setting is invalid
ToeFront setting is invalid
ToeRear setting is invalid

I'll be back with some new , probably slower splits. :(

'RA Functions' are adjustments you can make to the car while driving.
The DFGT wheel had special buttons for this, but they can be mapped to other wheels.

@Kjeld Lund
There is a video about it posted somewhere in the WRS section. I think it is in the same area that shows how to do a formation lap, examples of clean racing and other stuff like that. Let me know if you can't find it.

Oh.

So I gather the driver aids are readable per "RA event", instead of only "what they were at the beginning".

Not sure if it will work, but for anyone who owns an "old" Hudson Hornet and does not want to spend $500k on another one here are the changes that are needed to the suspension.

Camber 1.5 / 3.5
Toe -0.50 / 1.0

Or you could just hit "reset settings".

First ten laps. You might call this one a relaxing drive after a 900kg prototype, but it is just as difficult to be fast in! I am rubbish with ABS off so I will have to learn this week. Looks like I'm exactly 1 tenth per sector behind @Animera ;)

2/4 for me I think, mind you I could use some extra turn in so will probably change that!

Looking forward to giving this a try, curious to find out what it'll be like without ABS... At least, I'll be able to give my nitro-thumb a well deserved rest.

Fun combo, No ABS is an interesting one, gone with 1/5 on this, have to be so easy coming off the brakes out of the tunnel, other wise its just comes round on ya.
