    Steward's Comments:

    Funny little car that @mr_lab_rat pulled out of his back pocket :sly: the other day when we were combo hunting. Almost went with CH tires, but opted for slightly more grip with Comfort Mediums. :mischievous:

    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 2 splits: T1 & T2 times
    • Any settings discussion

    [​IMG]

    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 83 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:
    [​IMG]
    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

    Good luck, :gtplanet:

    Hmm...slow car and I manage a slow lap time...am detecting a pattern here :lol: This definitely isn't the car I remember thanks to the comfort tyres! This may be the week to try manual gears as it is slow enough and it seems as though it may help in a couple of places as the auto box seemed to be in a gear too high. Definite work to do as my best lap was nowhere near any of my sector PBs, though it was the quickest I'd gone through the split:

    S1: 17.731
    S2: 39.464

    You've got to give it the beans!

    I plan to get in on this one. I've missed you folks. I expect to be way, way down the order since I am quite rusty. But it will be fun either way.

    Knowing the grip level on these tires it's very hard to comprehend this car is standard on racing hards. you don't need to brake, scrub off speed is enough :p

    This combo is fantastic.

    17.360
    38.744

    Had a .636 at t2, and my best splits get me into the 5s so there's still some work to do.

    Slower splits faster laptime and couldn't beat it after an hour :p

    17.384
    38.717

    even with a .248 at T1 this ghost still beat me on the last turn :banghead: another .2 at the line and I will submit because anything beyond that is beyond me and would drive me crazy chasing it :D
    Cracking combo... just a tad mentally testing ;)

    Good luck to all taking part :tup:

    It's a bit weird,run a .250 in the very first stint yesterday,and now there's no way I can manage a .2 in the first sector.:crazy:

    What a difference, unsurprisingly, a manual gearbox makes!! My overall lap time has improved by 4 tenths from yesterday :eek: Now I see what I've been missing as it is so much better slowing into corners and being able to use the gearbox to help it...of course, whether I can do well on a tougher track with a quicker car remains to be seen but this has definitely made me determined to use it now. Still making silly errors like downshifting twice, hitting the limiter etc but, after 50 laps, I feel pretty confident with it on this combo. I will admit, however, that not all my gains have been because of the manual shifting as I have changed the way I approach a lot of the track as I realised my usual driving doesn't suit this car
