Steward's Comments:
Lots of grip and braking power this week. We haven't run Fuji for a while now, and we haven't had a tuning event here since week 55 in the Integra. Have Fun!!


Viewing your T1 & T2 Lap Time Splits:

You need to make sure you save the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay'.
To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Page' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replay' option.

Submission:

All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 79 Submission ) to (Vaxen):





  • Please submit your time in the following format on a single line:
    [Division#]---M'SS.XXX---GTP_Tag
    (Example-) [division 2]---1'44.678---GTP_EDK
  • you can submit only once
  • please include in your submission PM your division, GTP_Tag and final lap time

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 Although GMT has been replaced by atomic time (UTC) it is still widely regarded as the correct time for every international time zone.
Time verification:

Save your ghost replay and keep it at least a full two weeks after the event's deadline:





  • Racers, named by the OLR Admin staff, (if any) will be required to submit a replay for verification
  • Any submitted time is subject to a time verification request
  • When a time verification has been requested, the concerned racer must provide the correct replay within seven days of the request
  • Failure to do so will result in the removal of the unverified submission from the results table
  • Video replays are not accepted as a form of verification

First couple of laps I hated this car with it's oversteer but after about 30 laps, experimenting with tunes and gear ratios, I managed to tame it to my liking and produced this on R3 tyres:

21.720
54.817

(many errors there but the wine took over so I had to give up and watch the snooker)

First Splits. I'm using a tune from TLD (Thanks Paulie :cheers:). I changed some gear ratios because it was a 550PP tune and I was hitting top speed at the finish line.

0'21.638
0'54.221

I did pretty much the same thing using paulie's 550 tune. Plus I also changed the turning down to 32. Seems to suit me.

Ok, did a few laps with the Sixaxis as I am unable to use my wheel ATM due to my arm & here are my first set of splits:

0'21.785
0'54.395


Question: are you allowed to exceed the limit of PP when submitting for this week or must it be 700PP??

Yes 708pp maximum. Seeing as tyres are optional, you can probaly go less, but the power doesn't say optional so on R2's you can't up the power. I'm guessing it is maxed out at +52.

Sorry for the ambiguity with the tire listing. It's to be at Max PP, 708.

ok, so having power at +52 & weight at 85%, if I put R3 tires on it takes me to 708PP.

can only do about 5 laps before my arm starts becoming painful :ouch:, so about 10min per sitting is all I can do :grumpy:

anyway, here are my new splits:

0'21.344
0'53.577

looking to knock off at least another .3 to reach my target time.

First go at it:

21.474
53.631

Definitely room for improvement in the first two sectors, particularly the second. I do like this car+track combo though!

Only significant improvement is my T3.

It's an odd one, this. I can fiddle with the gears so I can go faster from the start line to the hairpin after T2, but then my ghost (above splits) beats me in T3 every time.

Starting to get slightly annoyed with it but i'll keep on trucking.
