Steward's Comments:

Finally we get to drive the Viper. This will be good training for the finale of the Triple Mix Championship on May 17. :bowdown: @Sjaak for an awesome event.

The stock wing gives 200 rear DF, and a custom wing bumps it up to 215. Your choice, but these are the only 2 legal values.

The flat floor is required, and can be identified on the rear of the car.

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 3 splits: T1, T2, & T3 times
  • Any settings discussion

Submission:
All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 68 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, May 11th 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

Apparently, my wheel has force feedback. I mean the track or combo offers.
Std wing, 5/5 brake.

So the options are: keep standard wing or remove it?
Sorry, I finally understood the question and the answer. :dunce:

Did anyone actually remove the wing? Sorry guys, I realize my original wording may have led to people thinking that removing the wing was OK, but the intent was to force either stock wing or custom wing.

I've changed the OP to:

Tuning: Prohibited - Rear wing (custom [215] or stock [200]) required, and flat floor Required

Great challenge this track and a good track day vehicle too. I am interested in putting a bit of an effort on this combo. Congrats on the choice Gravitron!

I knocked off time once I realized you can get on the gas quicker than you would think. Really like this combo. As usual laps are made or broken with how well you navigate the Bus Stop.

Ok so after my pathetic attempt to upload my week 66 time, might as well get going on this one nice and early

How do we add a flat floor?

Go to the custom parts section and add a flat floor. You can add a rear wing too but you may not adjust it. I like the custom wing.

From the same place you'd add the custom wing:

Custom Parts > Aero Parts > Flat Floors (or Custom Rear Wing if you want to add that).

Edit - Tree'd.

Will give this a quick run now, looks fun.
Good luck all and hopefully ill be in D2 next week
Watch out !
Most people using the optional wing so far or not? Surely slower on straights, but better through corners, imagine it depends on your driving style
@mr_lab_rat what are you going to run?

Ok sorry all for my confusion here (again) but dont want to run and then realise if been illegal.

In rear wings there are a few types,
Same as in custom wings
What am i allowed to do.. Choose any custom wing?? Sorry if im not reading this all properly but it is quite confusing, and no slight intended on the organisers, just want to be clear 100%
I have done the flat floor at least

And finally, where can we find race number??

My main confusion stems from this

Rear wing (custom [215] or stock [200]) required

As long as your rear downforce is set to 200 or 215, you can choose any wing you want and leave it at its stock setting, but you can't remove the wing entirely. Please let me know if anyone finds a wing that doesn't have a 200 or 215 default setting, I'm not going to test them all. :P


Race number is in the garage screen - "Driver Number".
