    • Solid Green surfaces are not track.


    Steward's Comments:
    During the closed Beta, the Gr. 4 GT-R was THE car in Gr. 4. All the races had standing starts, and all the cars had tuning available. We eventually got bored of this thing, and the current BOP has definitely neutered it. But those were the days, running the GT-R to the max on the Beta. :D

    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 97 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 97 Get Entry" and any text in the body.
    • Users can delete their submitted time by sending a message with the Subject: "GTP_WRS Week 97 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, October 7th 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.

    It's a nice one, you should at least give it a couple laps to see what you think.

    Weird combo on paper, but it handles the second sector really well.

    I actually had to go buy this car, I can’t believe I didn’t have it already? Fun car though, got a few starter laps in before heading to work this morning. It’s a fun combo, Good Luck this week everyone. :cheers:

    Worthless first sector,allways very inconsistent at this track.
    Still exploring what gear tu use in the second turn of S2.
    Shifting back helps to turn the car in the right direction,not sure if it's the fastest way.

    Always struggle here but starting to click with it a bit, feels like a couple of corners are between gears for me, turn 6/7 3rd too low and 4th loses revs or runs wide and Juncao same with 2nd and 3rd. Been going with 4th and 2nd so far.

    :dunce:Didn’t save my best lap today wich was slightly slower up to t2 but a bit faster at the end. And .407 t2 :cool:
    Still work to do. Will be Monday though...
    You have to surf along the inside of the turn 2 curbs. 1 or 2 out of 10 is clean here but .3s and occasional high .2s will pop up :tup:

    Lost .2 against my best T1 but the rest of the lap fell into place! Took half a tenth off my best lap.. Hoping I can scrape the loss back in T1 and take another .2 at the line for my best lap on paper then I'm done :tup:

    Thanks for the tips Stefan I will try some more later :cheers:
