    Steward's Comments:
    If you are wondering what kind of Miata this is you are not too far from the truth. Mazda admitted to model their tiny roadster after this legendary Lotus drophead (soft top convertible).
    Much needed change of pace should prove that you don't need a 500hp supercar to have fun at an old airfield.

    Once again, thanks to @mr_lab_rat & @roamer2629 for a great combo. :tup:


    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 T1 Splits, simply post the lap to date times that are shown in the middle of the screen. Do not try to calculate the actual T2 split time, 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 90 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]
    • The deadline is Monday, October 12th 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:
    • 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

    Hello racers,

    I heard the call some time ago and I though it would be a nice week to come back from Melmac and rejoin the back of the pack :D
    I believe there is a place for everybody in this great GTP community and always a challange to be taken. Thanks for being here.
    Now, lets try this great combo. Good luck everybody :tup::tup::tup:

    Looks like fun...hopefully, after 2 weeks of mediocrity, I can be competitive and show that I do actually belong in D2 silver

    Man this is a wickedly fun combo, what a sweet little ride. :cool:
    I'm starting to get the hang of the first S turn I think, no brakes and feathered throttle. I've seen some 16.5s first sector and 29.1s second sector so there's hopefully room for improvement here.

    7/5 brake balance

    Having trouble getting the throttle down after the first hairpin, need to play with various lines tomorrow.

    It seems taking a wide line at the T2 marker will improve the T3 while giving a slightly misleading T2 split. This lap had a good balance of both :tup: can't see myself finding more than 1-1.5 tenths!

    @JamCar0ne is it possible that you made a typo? Your sector time is fastest on the leaderboard and over .500 faster than the best D2 time.

    Typos are always a possibility, but not in this case. I've double and even triple checked the replay and the sector times are correct.

    Well, I've found the reason for the phenomenal sector two time and, I blame PD for it. When I pulled the car out of my garage, I opened up settings to insure it was on the 'snail' tab with CS tires (we ran it in snail some time ago). It never occurred to me to check the 'power' menu. The engine tuning was on stage 2. One of the other tabs I have tuned and forgot that one of the early updates makes certain adjustments appear to all tabs.

    @Gravitron, please delete my current entry and I will post my new (slower) time.

    no need to delete splits from leaderboard, just submit your new ones and Fetchy will rewrite them ;)

    I think if I remember correctly, if you post your slower splits it will appear.

    Yeah, engine tuning and weight reduction affect all three tuning tabs.
    That's why I try to submit my time right after the first session early in the week. Fetchy lets me know if I got the right track, car, tires, power ...
    After that you can submit another lap and it overwrites the old one.

    Going to try and free up some time for this one, Been missing the fun

    Can i submit laptimes of which I'm not signed in to the ps network? It would help me pertisapate alot more if I could
