    Steward's Comments:
    This car has been featured in Gran Turismo since the first Demos on PS1 and in the full game the 30th Anniversary Camaro was also present with white base color and orange stripes.

    I remember this car understeering much more in previous Gran Turismos. In the current one it handles great!

    Try to resist the urge to go sideways , or not. :mischievous:


    Thanks you for the help with photographing & photoshoot @Gravitron , @GTP_Patrick1 , @PASM , @suprajef and @GTP_Dutchy


    Viewing your T1 & T2 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 & T2 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.
    [​IMG]


    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 and T2 times
    • Any settings discussion
    [​IMG]


    Submission:
    All submissions must be sent by PM (Subject title: GTP_WRS Week 97 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, November 30th 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

    Good luck, :gtplanet:

    • "The pit-entry white lines are legal."
    So, this is legal?

    That would be the tires, not the car.
    Didn't think the WRS did Drift Trials.

    Yeah..it's one occasion where comfort tyres do not suit it, though, in fairness, I haven't driven the car before anyway so no idea how it normally handles

    Sorry for another track boundary question, but I'm curious whether this white apex is considered as track?

    Only got a few laps in since I've been sick since yesterday.
    21.950
    40.833

    I was still feeling nervous on S1, still have to get used to how I can work around braking on CS but I think S2 really makes the lap here, can't go too deep into turn 6 as it will lose you tenths going into S3.

    @MadMax it wasn't stated in the OP, but are we allowed to change brake balances this week?

    Still trying to find the best line through turn 1, a better lap should come together after that.

    I don't know if the corner where the track departs from the GP circuit turns east or not, but the car sure turns/turned in quick, there. And rumble strips seem to be important for turning in some places.

    I shifted at 5200.

    Changed back to Auto shift for this one as I can't control the car and shift at the same time, especially with the narrow rev range it has...changed to 2/5 brake bias and improved by 1.4 seconds in total:

    S1: 22.259
    S2: 41.109

    Tip: Stay in 4th gear on the main straight, I've noticed 5th gear is a bit wider than the rest and the power really drops off. Just using 4th gear, I top out at about 210-212km/h at the braking point for turn 1. The limiter is around 6400-6500 but shifting at 6000 is good enough for the lower gears.

    It won't gain tenths, but it will give a few good hundredths on the main straight.

    After pushing the X-Bow for all its worth for 1 week it does a few laps to get "recalibrated" for this combo. Don't give up on this too early if you have problems at first, its quite fun once you get the hang of it. (I suggest getting the hang of it before trying to go "fast")
