    Steward's Comments:
    My dad owned a '69 Corvette Roadster, with a 427 big block. He began restoring it in the '80's, but sold it before completing the project. He took the truck I own now on trade, along with some cash, for the Corvette. I was quite young when he got the car, I think 3 years old. But I still have memories of a few rides in the car before he started the tear down.

    This car on the game is very similar, but a small block 350 car. It's a nice drive here, with laps less than one minute, and a difficult to control car. We're not allowing tuning of any sort this week, you get the car in its swimmy suspension, open diff glory. :tup:

    Saving Replays, Viewing sector times and Submissions:
    • You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below)
    • Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    • To view your best lap replay, go to 'My Library' and watch the replay from there using the 'Replays' option.
    • While viewing your Replay, enter the live timing screen to view your sector splits. You will need to do this after your car has passed the sector markers to see it listed.
    • Simply post the splits that are shown in the live timing screen, and our Fetchbot will parse them and add them together for your total sector time.
    • When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the posted lap time will result in a DQ.
    • Remember - When you submit your time you're also declaring that your run is 100% clean. We request replays for the purpose of verifying to all those concerned that the drivers claim is correct, which in turn safeguards the integrity of the driver, and just as importantly, the WRS. The golden rule is to check your replay before submission. If you’re still unsure, check it again, ask for a second opinion and if you’re still undecided, run the lap again.

    Thread rules:

    The following information cannot be discussed in this thread (they can, however, be discussed on Skype or via other private IM service.):
    • Total Lap Time
    • Any information which can be used to infer your total laptime
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline, expect the full lap time to be public, regardless of whether you've only shared with Friends or Public.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 8 Submission ) to (WRSFetchbot):
    • Please submit your FULL LAP TIME in the following format on a single line:
      X:XX.XXX
      (Example-) 1:10.100
    • You will get an automated response within 15min, letting you know whether your submission was accepted, or if you had an error.
    • For those of you who were used to submitting replays on GT6, we no longer have the ability to export the files.
    • 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. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, January 22nd 2018 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:
    • Division winners and overperformers will be required to submit a replay via GT Sport Share function for verification AFTER Unofficial Results have been posted.
    • Participants will be expected to check each others' replays for cleanliness, for replays marked in the Results thread as (Check Needed)
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification

    Sweet (although I might be cursing you when I try the combo) :)
    I was hoping for a break from these high grip racing machines.

    Some splits to start the week off:

    15.611
    10.666 :scared:

    Should be a fun one to hunt, but not sure if I'll be too competitive with my relatively hamfisted throttle control in combination with this beast.

    Haha! This one is going to be so much fun...and frustrating at the same time. Hopefully it won't make me seasick with all the rockin' and rollin'! Do we get any kind of bonus if we can do a full 360 during the lap while keeping it on the track? :p I do love the short lap though; makes it easy to jump on and do a bunch of laps in the little time I have during the week.

    I suppose this is as good a time as any to share my Mako Shark livery if anyone wants it...clickity-click here or search #makoshark #shinoda #concept. I saw @Sjaak has a nice GTP livery out there as well. :tup:

    I like this better than crampons. Far more fun.

    I'm looking forward to this. I like a high powered car on hard tires and a short track to boot. I'll be spending a lot of time with this one.

    Nice combo @EDK, this is going to be a fun and deeply frustrating week driving by looking through the rear window but we can't complain at the length of time to get round the track :cheers:

    Running a couple of laps on this combo, I think I can safely say I am not inflicted with the controversial Grip bug!

    Did not complete one lap yet,must be because I spend way to much time doing other things.;)

    Also, fiddling with livery and foto options and spamming the WRS threads is a good excuse for my lack of speed.:D

    I wish there was something else I could do to deflect attention from my driving, I tried posting incorrect splits but that might get me barred from GTP if I keep that up...lovely livery again :cheers:

    I'll probably mention fruit again. Possibly the airspeed velocity of a fully laden European Swallow. That should cover my driving deficit.

    Totally bitchin combo!! :cool:
    My uncle had a ‘73 stingray painted metallic brown back in the ‘70s when I was young. He would take me for crazy tire smoking drives and inspired a life long love of speed and bitchin cars. :tup: Thanks Kev this is going to be a totally rad week!! :cheers:

    Quite a messy lap but I have given myself a target time to reach, hopefully I can find some improvement in the week.
