    Steward's Comments:
    Back to Monaco this week, and a tribute to the Grand Prix racers of the 1960's. This car is a really great fit here, as you might imagine. Have fun!

    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 T2 split time, 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 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 & T2 times
    • Any settings discussion.

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 7 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 body: "get entry"
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the body of "remove entry".
    • 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:
    [​IMG]
    • The deadline is Monday, March 10th 11:59pm GMT
    • If you are unsure of the deadline try this site


    Why Use GMT?:
    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

    Love the title of this combo. Took a little drive and the car is light, the road is tight and the feel is just right!! In the immortal words of the great American street philosopher JJ Jimmy Walker...."Dynomite!!"

    What the... I've already done this exact combo before! Except the car was fully modded with a setup and the lap was uploaded to YouTube a while ago. Should I remove the video for the purpose of this event, or what? :confused:

    Well this car fully modded will be different to the car stock.

    Yeah like Oink said, you shouldn't have to be required to removing it. Great driving there though!

    I was surprised at the slight hairy moment in the tunnel, I've never had that happen to me. Looked nice though!

    You can leave it up, Andrew, just don't go getting anywhere near that laptime and all will be OK. :D

    I'll have to get another one of these. It looks so much like a 50' F1 car I'll pretend I'm Fangio for a while...perfect setting by the way

    I wholeheartedly agree with the slogan. The track is one I want to get a better grasp on, even though it's somewhat familiar since before GT.

    Everyone take careful note of the track boundary rules at the chicane. DO NOT dip your wheels over the curb.

    I think that depends on what you call stable. Just don't clip the curb on the Grand Hotel Hairpin or you might face-plant the barrier!!

    This combo is a lot of fun though. Might have to make some 'GT6 time' available this week.

    Can we adjust Brake Balance on this, or is that considered tuning?
    Thanks

    You can ALWAYS adjust brake balance.

    EDIT: First splits. After I got this lap I went and did a huge burnout in celebration. :)

    71.868


    Since your T2 time looked like a full-lap time, I've deleted it. Feel free to re-post the correct splits.

    Umm, default power on my Rocket shows 165 BHP rather than 174 as mentioned in the op. Changed the oil for it to give 174. Legal yea?

    Hmmm.....loving the fact the event is at Monaco as I have always had a soft spot for this beautiful city but I am not very good with the Rocket :nervous:. Am still sure I will put in plenty of time though as running these Time Trials has become my latest addiction (1200+ miles with the Elise, 500+ miles with the Focus etc).

    Yes, change your oil. :tup: That and brake balance changes will be a given every week. :)

    :drool: A new time to chase. :bowdown:

    Anyway, found 3 tenths:

    27.028
    71.562

    BB 5/4, but I haven't really messed with this yet so I'm not sure if it's good or not. It certainly feels good. :D
