    Steward's Comments:

    Long version of Kyoto Driving Park and a proper German race car, what else could we need for a week of hard racing? Have fun!

    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 lap time.
    • If you choose to Share your Best-Lap Replay via GT Sport before the deadline,your full lap time will be considered to be shared publicly which contravenes our rules. Even if you've only shared with Friends.
    The following information can be discussed in this thread :
    • The first 6 sectors: T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, and T6 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 86 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, you 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 86 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 86 Remove Entry" and any text in the body.
    • If you want to submit multiple times in the week just reply to the conversation with your new time. Fetchy always uses the last submitted time as the final one.
    • The deadline is Monday, July 22nd 2019 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 the 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 (Replay Verify Required).
    • Video/Youtube/Twitch replays are not accepted as a form of verification.

    Loads of places to improve but just wanted to get something up.
    Nice combo. I live this track and never used this car before. Quite an interesting car.

    I don’t run so well on the longer tracks. (I don’t run well anywhere truthfully) The track is very good and the car makes it a lot of fun. Great combo. I hope to have time to get some laps in.

    Man, that’s one Spicy Combo!! So hard to keep the wheel spin down in the slow corners, there’s still a lot more to go, but I got a starter lap in. :)

    I've never liked the car very much: bulky, heavy, understeer, oversteer, you name it, it's all there.
    Gave it a try anyway:

    30.193
    12.297
    8.223
    19.174
    17.592

    Gonna try again later in the week, I believe there is some time left.

    That’s me for tonight, I have loads left to improve. My nemesis corner is the left hand hairpin joining onto Miyabi, that bump gets me every time, I lose loads there. Trying to keep the back end from spinning out in the 2nd gear corners is tricky but I’m getting there. Managed to drop TC to 1 and BB+2 I think it was.

    I did a small amount of testing with this, so observations are high level.

    This car will be fast when driven smoothly, with patience.

    Rushing in under braking or getting on the throttle too quickly on exit will make it step out, and will slow you down.

    Brake on the early side, turn in smoothly, balance the car, and ease into it for the exit.

    The track transitions are especially tricky, so should be handled differently from the other corners. Do what I said above, to a greater extent in those.

    I've not run enough laps to give shift points or track specific tips. But the above should help get you into the right mindset to find a rhythm and eventually some pace.

    This car is giving me fits, I’ve ruined so many good laps!! :lol:

    On the bright side, that usually means I’m learning something. :)

    I’ve really got into this one, managed to turn TC right off now with the DS4. These TT’s are really getting me back into this. Latest splits, still got more. Hopefully i’ll get some time Monday night for a last minute blast.

    Great splits, very nicely done. :cheers:

    I’ve been running it without TCS as well, I’ve actually gone without TCS now since 1.39, that seemed to be the turning point, for me anyways.

    I finally got a decent lap in, time for a break. :)
