    • White Lines denote Track Boundaries except where backed by Rumble Strips.

    Steward's Comments:

    It felt good to be out of the rain really :D Sports Medium gives a great feel for the handling of this classic 911 while keeping it controllable and on the edge of grip through those sweeping, long desert turns. Enjoy!

    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 2 sectors: T1 and T2 times.
    • Any settings discussion.

    [​IMG]

    Submission:

    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 94 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 94 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 94 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, September 16th 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.

    Thank you. :)

    We actually work hard at that. Softs made it numb, hards were too hard. ;)

    So then, here we are.

    @Pigems I hope you had the opportunity to run Wings Of The Red Dragon on GT5.

    Braking a bit early and trying to get on the power earlier as well. Improved quite a bit at the line.

    I was skeptical about this car, but I really like this track, and it makes for a fun combo!

    I've seen much better S1, but this is my best lap so far:

    We are all there. Usually the first couple days are like that. Back when we had the online events, I would usually improve from consistency after the race. And learn from the aliens.

    But over 2 tenths on the lap. I'm very slowly seeing what this needs.

    Is the quickest way around most corners to use huge slip angles? That's what I'm finding, but could also explain why I'm slow. When I've managed to pull it off I've gained huge time. Simply lost time gained somewhere else down the track.

    That's how it felt to me when I tested it.

    It was silly difficult on Sports Hards, and had too much grip on Sports Softs, to the extent you lost that rotation.

    It seems to me like balancing the car on the edge of grip is going to be fastest with this one.

    This car seems to perform best when you eradicate the tyre skid on exit.. Tiptoe carefully on entry and exit for best results imo :tup:
    Will get back on this again at the weekend when I am further down the leaderboard :tup: GL all and Enjoy!! :cheers:
