    Standard Clean OLR Rules (These Apply to ALL Events):
    • The event MUST be run using your registered PSN account.
    • The use of the clutch is strictly prohibited.
    • Use of the Handbrake is Prohibited.
    • No Contact with walls or other objects. Any contact with walls, no matter how minor, will result in a DQ.
    • At Least 2 Tires must be in contact with track at all times (See image below).
      • 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.

    [​IMG]
    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The green sections behind the rumble strips are absolutely, positively, never, ever track. Period.

    Steward's Comments:
    We were looking for a Gr. 3 car to run at Suz, and the Jag is great here, even without tuning. Once you throw tuning the mix, it's an absolute dream to drive here. It's very composed and a little tweak to LSD does wonders for traction exiting the corners.

    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 3 sectors: T1, T2 and T3 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 53 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 49 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 49 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, December 3rd 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.

    Good luck,

    Base Tune. I will work on toe, springs and dampers next, this is good, but can be improved.

    RH 2.52/3.15
    Springs 3/3 (Stock)
    ARB 8/5
    Dampers: Stock
    Camber 3.0/2.5
    Toe 0/0

    DF 400/740

    LSD 5/10/5

    Trans - Final Far Right, Top Speed Far Left, then set -

    1914
    1610
    1375
    1170
    1026
    927

    Final = 3600

    Shift right at the top of the meter/redline, not before or after.

    Going to be a learning experience for me, i'm bad at Suzuka so it will be a chance to try and get better. But not until I've dragged every last ounce out of the brown hell! :lol:

    For a long time now I want to create a livery like that. I think Suzuka is the right place for it. :gtpflag:

    Eric have you tried backing up game data to USB stick after you finish saving your replays.

    I'm not 100% sure but that may be a way of keeping your replay safe. Bit of a pain having to copy them back again, but that's better than loosing all your hard work.

    Yes we've lost a few good points in the game, all of which were very useful. Some call it progress but I'm not so sure.

    As I said not sure if it would help any having not tried it myself. The SSD drive change and loading a copy of GT Sport direct onto the SSD Drive seems to have solved the problems I was having.

    Crucial 500gb + £18 for download copy = £79 well worth it to me to not suffer the aggravation

    As far as we know, there's no means of exporting replays.

    What you are suggesting would work for some aspects of storage, such as game data, but replays are only in the cloud.

    Well, we allowed tuning.

    What are you running for LSD?

    Switched to @Rikson's tune and I can't exactly put my finger on what feels different than Kev's, but I went faster with it. PB in the final sector for 0.8 at the line.

    Ah, Suzuka, we meet again....

    Just using @EDK gears for the moment, and will hopefully get the opportunity to dial the rest of the tune in during the week (unless work intervenes).

    34.302
    20.058
    47.025

    Hmm, back in Japan; might just be time for another Itasha livery...

    Just a quick tune , it seems very hard on springs and dampers but the stock version and mid range settings are very very soft and springy , the setting window is a lot down to what it would have to be in my opinion, I've let it neutral for anybody adapt to his own style, mostly brake balance and rear downforce that can be more rear end free oriented. 3rd gear and LSD are setted for the S succesion and dunlop full gas.
    I lap **removed by moderator** regular with it..
    Edit: Sorry i've forgotten the rules , not showing lap times. Ride heiht is mini front maxi rear. For the gearbox NO transmition flip used.
