    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):

    • Blue and Yellow Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.

      Steward's Comments:

      Formula one makes a comeback to the series with the Silver Arrow of 2017, after being absent since the Ferrari in GT5. The fast, banked turns at Alsace are a perfect spot to put this grip monster through it’s paces. Tuning is allowed this week so everyone can feel comfortable with the car.

      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 54 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 54 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
      • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 54 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 10th 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,

    Start things off here with a bone stock car :)

    Was having issues in corners using the auto setting the game provides for degrees rotation of wheel. Setting it to 540 seemed to smooth things out.

    Goes well enough just on default mode Mike, maybe all you need is toe settings to hold a nice line and even rotation

    Okay that thing is properly mental :lol: feel like i've been in fast forward! Also so many gears I lose count and I physically can't change down fast enough half the time.

    Good fun though :D

    Yup you need to dislocate the big one on either side. That's toe in how real man do it :p you can achieve this by moving your coffee table 5 inches and walk through your living room in the middle of the night.

    Obviously joking

    1st 30 laps or so. Max DF, toe In 0.10 both front and rear, and left the gears alone except for the max speed slider, moved it up to 280mph/451kph, so 6th gear is the highest you use.
    There's most likely a better way to do the gears, but I didn't fiddle with it on this session.

    "I physically can't change down fast enough"

    Your not kidding Mike, (hence auto gears ) I can see my Driving Miss Daisy style is out the cock-pit this week. Being lazy all default right down to standard box, and including helmet + gloves.

    Full DF only. Don’t know what to do with the setup yet and how much there’s left.
    But survived :cheers:

    Will be spending more time here! Didn't have the $ so did 2 xbow races to get the difference, this thing flies!

    Tried some laps stock, then knocked 0.7 off by maxing aero. accidentally used auto first time, haven't tried auto anything for a year, and after fixing it to manual decided auto is easier while I learn this combo a bit better, that downshift is hard to master! Add a couple of replay glitches on FL by crashing before S1, I finally have something to get on the board! Still more time in lots of places.

    Edit: I went with Gravitrons 6 gears suggestion :cheers: I just adjusted the max speed to 286 and nothing else touched there and it works for me.. here's the set up I have so far it needs more work but hopefully someone can make use of it ;)
