    My splits (apparently very slow, who would have guessed).

    T1- 28.492 28.360
    T2- 46.349 46.148


    I looked at first place online and my lines and general ideas aren't that different, so why am I so much slower?:banghead:

    :eek:

    I'm in once I give last week a few more runs - I cut my teeth on London Reverse many WRS's ago when we did the GT-R on S2's - man was that hard.

    Also, I was just wondering why the RA Function is allowed but the clutch is not - both would seem to give an unfair advantage to certain people yet one is allowed in WRS and one is not - can someone point me to a thread where this was previously discussed so I can read up? :tup:

    Cheers!

    I heard for the first time about these button functions with the GT academy.

    During not tuning (fixed)online races with the GTR,Corvette and the Ferrari it gave an unfair advantage to the GTR due to a better power distribution.

    I believe after Spec III you couldn't adjust the brake bias and the power distribution anymore.

    The ASM,TCS are still in play to adjust during driving but with our races it is no problem to go to the option menu and adjust it overthere.

    Lin,If there is an unfair advantage ,can you point out what that is so we can take actions.

    I was under the impression that the clutch is banned because only G25 and Fanatec users can make use of that function to make faster shifts. However any controller, even sixaxis, can be mapped to allow the use of the in-race RA functions menu. I certainly was able to when I used the controller.

    All the best

    Ah, I wasn't aware that anyone could use the RA function - I thought it was limited to the newer DFGT wheel. I'll check it out further - thanks for the clarification gents!

    Not done a london wrs before, whats the deal with the corners? the top online times cut all of them going over the pavement, am I right in thinking we can't do this? Might answer your question as to why you are slower Paulie.

    I can confirm the DFP has RA functions.
    It was easy to map out and remember.
    With the G25 you probably need to use the shifter buttons.
    Not too convenient.

    Andy, all is track, just don't hit walls.
    Take the inside's and you'll be OK.

    Decided to dust off the old GT5P and give this combo a try.

    10 laps in:

    T1: 29,049
    T2: 47,194

    Hmmm, does it show that I haven't raced for about 5 months :p

    Nope, all is track this week, just don't hit walls.......and I was aware of this. I just suck at London apparently, even after watching faster replays I can't match the pace.:(

    You had better not be in D3 still this week. I would love to know how people are going 2 tenths faster than I at T2 when there's only one corner in the second sector and it requires very little slowing down.:grumpy:

    And if you dont nail that 1 corner perfectly you can forget about getting a sub 46 T2. I noticed even a 1 or 2 kmph difference around that corner makes a difference down to the end of T2. Its frustrating but when you get it right you will know :tup:

    I'll do some more study on it then. I've nailed it pretty well for the way I'm taking it now, so perhaps there is a different way. I'll have to have another look at the top replays.

    Download the replays off the leaderboard and watch them, that's what I do. I then spend the next hour or so thinking 'how the hell did he go so fast through there!?!?!?' :D

    Hey, wadda ya know, I'm feeling better already!:dopey:..............Oh no there's Ian's splits again.:(

    :lol:

    I watched his lap once, I didn't think there was much different, I'll definitely need to take another look. Damn London Reverse.:crazy: I really hope I'm abnormally faster than normal for me at Grand Valley Speedway when GT5 hits, I loved that track. Did all my testing and tuning there in GT4.
