Steward's Comments:
The widowmaker , are you able to tame her before she snaps at you? :mischievous:

There is a certain Richard Hammond who would likely love this car.
And don't ask the Orangatan "Powaaaaaa!!" Clarkson's opinion about 911s.

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

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 58 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, March 2nd 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

Good luck, :gtplanet:
OLR Team
James "Captain Slow" May would hate it as well, if only because of the look.

While I'm Captain Slow's American cousin, I'll keep an open mind. :lol:
If you drive the car like the Orangatan, you'll hate it like Clarkson. It is THAT evil.

Anyway, I may as well get this ball rolling (or is that sliding?) downhill:

Great Car and Track combo 👍

At least it's not the full-on, axe murdering, Yellow-Bird.

Edit:- Standard Rims and 5/5 BB.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I seem to be leaving 1.5-2 secs on the table between T1 and T2. :lol:

I've checked that I'm on Hard fronts and Medium rears? :boggled:

EDIT:- I'm on the wrong track!! :dunce:
Nice challenging combo with that oldschool-badass-car!

first run with the ds3:

I was wondering...:dunce: ... has there been or will there ever be the use of Nitrous in our TT's?
Not yet.

Might be interesting to try on the right track, one where the strategic place to use it is not obvious.

We DID have the Hybrid TT and 2.4 hour race, which had a boost button that you could use to increase power, as available. Similar to Nitrous, but at Fuji, it was pretty obvious where it should be used.
@LeftyWright69 @EDK as long as the nitrous doesn´t fill up again during a lap, it would be hard to get into a tracks rythm with all the restarts. but it sure would be interesting for one TT.

Nice combo, thanks for the tire stagger. Cannot imagine how this car would drive without it. Some of the modeling for rear engine cars is overdone, I know from experience. A First Gen MR2 is as planted as they come, unless you are PD.

There's quite a bit more in there I think. Only trouble is deciding whether or not to go back to last week's...

Fast car, quick laps......I'm in!
I can see frustrated glances at the leaderboard and chasing 10ths in my future:nervous:
Cheers All!!!
First splits. Still a lot of work needed to get something respectable. Great combo though.
