Steward's Comments:

Time to go back to Monza! Let's take a Vision GT car out for a Sunday drive!!! No worries about the fact that there is (No Chicane)! Keep the right foot down, there is sufficient grip to go full throttle through the first corner! Please don't forget to adjust the Power Limiter to 75%. Enjoy!

Viewing your 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 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

Submission:
All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 66 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, April 27th 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

The car doesn't have enough grip at the front to go full throttle through the first corner with a DS3.
The Mazda LM55 is a great car, but the stock setup is just horrible, especially with a DS3. I don't understand why you prohibit tuning completely for racecars. In my opinion aero tuning should be allowed for racecars. With a bit more front downforce, 480 instead of 450, DS3 users could take turn 1 full throttle.

A couple tenths left in t2, but t1 and 3 are good.

There's probably more left than I think but I've never been good at this track or in these csrs.

OK, fair play, we'll allow aero tuning. I've added "Downforce: Optional" to the OP, and have informed Fetchy of the changes. 👍

That and brake balance changes are all that's allowed.

That's unfortunate.

Too bad the aero adjustments won't help with my frequent wipe-outs from accidently having a tire go off in the grass. :lol:

I gave it a try yesterday and it really is impossible to take turn one full throttle on the DS3...

Turn one is tricky. With a wheel, the car wants to push, and then a tad more input makes the car veer to the inside wall. You gotta get the car through there without that happening.

I aim to get back involved with this one this week.

I put in nearly two hundred miles last night before the Aero Optional change. It will be interesting finding the aero sweet spot. My inclination would be a little more to the front and a little less to the rear.

The only issue with this track is where it starts you. You have to do a full lap in order to get up to full speed. I guess it is more like a real life qualifying/hot lapping experience in that way. But it is annoying.
Especially when I miss a shift at parabolica.

Actually, you can turn around where you start without invalidating your next lap, so that's what I did. Started before Parabolica, and then had a good run down the front straight.

Also, I will paint my car in memory of Vadim Kogay's ridiculously horrible first race here. :lol:

I did that a time or two. I found it to be more effective for me to just go with it. Once I got in the rhythm of the track, I was able to lay down a few stints of 10+ laps in a row so it became a non-issue.

Fantastic combo. My difficult point is turn 7 where I use to run (almost too) wide.

Increasing a little the downforce, both rear and front, helps getting a more predictable behaviour.

I hit the rev limiter for about 10 laps before I realize that I had to lower the power limiter at 75%. 100% is for Jedi Knights! :lol:

I few weeks back I spotted the suggestion thread and 'was' trying to think of something. I can't really explain what only that it should be something the redbull jr on roma, but not that at all.

This is it the thing I wanted 👍 it's unbelievable :bowdown: no time to have a sip of coffee as you go along your forced into having complete focus. Great choice this week :cheers: I'll be giving this a good couple of hours on Thurs.

There are still room for improvement, but I know if I nail one section, I fail in another section
