    Race Specifics (Rules for This Specific Event):
    • White Rumble Strips, Red and White Rumble Strips and Tarmac are Track Surface. No other surfaces are track.
    • The various green sections are not track.
    • Rumble strips with grass between track and rumble strips are not track.

    Steward's Comments:
    Ran a session with @roamer2629 a couple weeks ago and we came up with this one. It's got a lot of tarmac rally slide to it, but is totally controllable. The engine has incredible pull and sound to the top of the range. It's a really fun and fantastic fit here, enjoy!

    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 56 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 24th 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.

    It's All Wheel Drive, Gayle, so very controllable.

    I like to set the torque split at 50/50, you can adjust that on the in car menu that you can use to adjust brake balance, etc.

    No mention of the white lines, so I guess as with the NSX on the East going outside the line after the esses isn't dirty?

    I don't use the white line rule except at tracks which have a poorly designed edge outside of it (example, Willow Springs).

    My track boundary rules can be taken literally, as posted.

    40/60 split with -2 BB.

    35.648
    32.071
    28.012

    Seems really sensitive to downshifting. Tried 50/50 split for a few laps, 40/60 feels pretty good and this car really likes to move around.

    Didn’t have time to really work on a good lap. I was too busy reinacting my favorite Ken Block video. Crazy fun to drive.

    I am struggling with a rear BB because it wants to send the car into a spin when I turn. Also 50:50 f/r drive bias doesn’t make it more controllable.

    This may be a case of operator error though.

    Sorry Gordy but it must be the operator because it does make it a lot easier to get on the throttle earlier.

    I was using BB of -1. I think -2 also works.

    Those settings extend braking distance but make the car more controllable.

    Gave this a go last night too.....

    35.949
    31.942
    28.058

    BB +2 :D and 45/55. Damn the SS tyres. It's funny how when you are lapping it's like a screeching, sliding mess (for me at least) and then watching it in Reply it appears as smooth as!

    Disappointed I missed the W08, though I did give it a go a couple of days after closing.....was a great combo! :tup:

    45/55 split now with -1 BB.

    35.597
    31.950
    27.867

    Laps are pretty consistent so may just come down to one final run at this after taking a day off.

    Real tidy second sector for a nice gain (.500) at the line out of nowhere. Getting used to my new wheel helps as well.

    Ran a 65 mile set. At BB-1 and 45:55. I feel like there is a infinite amount of time to cut. I have to actively tell myself not to drift it through the corners.

    Gave this a quick few laps, had some fun getting sideways, and then decided to try smooth and steady. Got some time to find.

    36.248
    31.815
    28.008

    Time to play with the MFD settings.

    SS don't like to be off track, 3 times I managed to get the rear off using as much track as poss. gave me very poor sector one and two, made up for it last sector though.

    Agree with getting too far (still within the track boundaries) off track with these tires in high speed corners, especially in the “S” section in sector two.

    Smooth can be fast like most TT’s. Nice splits you have going there. With pretty consistent overall lap times for a longish lap this one should be pretty close in the end.
