    I don't get why anyone would cheat, what do you learn then? and what fun is that? There is nothing we are racing for except fun and bragging rights, why cheat for that?

    I know I have only been a part of this now for 8 weeks, but it is a blast, and I can not believe how much I have learned and improved in that time. I appreciate all the work every one puts into this so that I have somewhere fun to race. Honestly I would already be over this game if it wasn't for the WRS. I am not fast and racing online for 10th place is only fun for so long.

    So thanks everyone for all that you do for these Time Trials, and I for one can say out of respect for everyone's time and effort I will always follow the rules.

    :cheers:

    I’d assumed that would show up at the start of the replay if you cut the turn but I guess not from this combo. I guess the old mantra of “if you’re not completely sure, bin it” applies here as always. I’ve had a few runs where I’ve got 4 wheels on that last turn before starting and just hit the reset button.... in fact I seem to be hitting the reset button an awful lot at various turns on this combo :lol:

    I can see how that came across in a bit of an accusing way, I simply meant that people had tried it to see if it works, wouldn't actually expect anyone to submit a lap like that. :tup:

    I tried it just to see how much difference it made (I never intended to submit the lap, I was just interested), but it ended with me having a head on collision with the pit wall so didn’t try again :lol::lol::lol:

    I wouldn't mind tuning events either. if everyone ran the same tune. :lol:

    Seriously though they are fun too, and luckily we have some great tuners who share their tunes with the non tuners like me so we can also enjoy the week. :cheers:

    100% agree! Absolutely! And I appreciate you doing this in terms of being suspicious of all times if anything pops out. You have too.

    Like we all said it's pointless to cheat. That's what I love about the WRS environment. Very friendly and competitive. Again @EDK my questions were ment to be clearing up that last sector so I know when I submit a time that it's 100% legal.

    But as we all know the WRS is great. The competitive battles and friendly riveralies for 1st to 10th to 25th and so on. It's great! I may be D1 Gold but I still have a lot of speed and Its great to be here with drivers like @Doodle and @Spurgy 777 and many more.

    My bad if I came across rude when asking those questions. But thanks for clearing it all up :cheers:

    Awesome times by everyone on the board so far! Going to be a close finish all over the board this week :)

    No, not rude. And if you are asking, someone else is probably thinking the same thing.

    I am just trying to answer as directly and transparently as I can, because I think you guys should know what you are dealing with.

    Slightly slower splits but a tenth faster at the line. As an aside, the whole replay thing is so irritating, after getting my best lap, I ran a full lap and a half afterwards but even so, the replay cuts out about half a second after the time comes up. You can see it but only just, I'm really not sure what else you can do :banghead:

    As long as the time is visible even for a moment that is fine we can catch it. It's when the replay cuts out before showing the time that's a problem :):tup:

    If anyone has doubt they can ask me to look at the replay and as long as I can frame forward to get the time then you will be fine :cheers:

    Midweek splits - can go faster in both sectors but still working T1 out as my finishing speed at end of lap is not yet above 100 mph - indicating time lost in T3 probably all the way back to at the hairpin in T3 exit speed........

    Significant improvement at the line though versus initial splits so onwards and upwards (or should that be sideways in this case?)...........

    New splits after another 30 lap session today:

    15.841
    10.688

    Left some time in T1 but gained a lot in T2 and T3, all in all .3 faster at the line.

    This was amazing to do, and also, very very very frustrating sometimes. But hey, I have to start my online racing somewhere and where better then in a american classic ;).

    Just submitted my time to the fetchbot and the splits are:

    16.230
    11.077

    I guess that I am just not sensative enough towards the steering of this car in combination with the dualshock :boggled:. Settings where -5 on the braking and 3 on the tcs (thanks to a tip in this topic, helped out a lot ! )

    Great to have you along. This one is testing even the oldest hands but hopefully it will be a good first experience for you. Good luck and don't be afraid to ask questions :cheers:

    Somehow fluked a .366 in the first sector in this session that I'll probably never get close to again, kicking myself for not saving the replay :dunce:

    I finally discovered this week that I can turn off the cones, messed up many laps till I figured that one out :dopey:
    Staying in 4th gear in the first corner through T1 has really helped me, consistantly 15.5s now :cool:

    15.582
    10.633
    Good times Y’all! :gtpflag:

    Sorry!
    This is my first time trying to submit my full lap time.
    I’m doing it according to what it says on the first post but I’m receiving a message saying it’s either spam-like or contains inappropriate elements.
    I’m just putting the time as it shows.
    Is there anything I should do also?
    I don’t know if here is the right channel to ask this and I just need some light!

    Thank you!

    Wow what a session :cool:

    Ran 50 laps, 8 of them faster than my previous best and I knocked a whopping .4xx off my best time.:tup:

    Super excited, it was an unreal lap. Just checked it and it is all good. :D

    15.771
    10.859

    Edit: Just realized these 2 sectors were only about .1xx faster than my previous best lap. I made all that time up on Sector 3.

    Still can't put a lap together where my first two spits are faster... I hate Miyabi (no I don't, I still have fond memories of winning a kart race at Miyabi).

    So, er, is this still on track?

    Updated splits

    15.666
    10.768

    That last sector has ruined more good laps than I care to remember!

    Your 2 splits are irrelevant, it's the overall time that matters @ColinNZ
