What we learn
Once the challenge is completed all entrants must submit their tune to GtVault within 7 days of the completion of the challenge. This makes it possible for others to learn about car setup seen from a different point of view, and to take ideas forward for our own tuning ventures. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
Lap Time Validation
Additionally after the challenge ends, you must submit a replay to either myself or someone else in the challenge to validate your time. During the challenge you may submit replays to check if a lap is legal if you are unsure.
Submitting a replay can be done in 2 ways:
1. Sending a copy of your replay taken from GT5
2. Recording the lap:
..........2.1 With a capture card, or
..........2.2 With a stable camera of sufficient quality.
and uploading it to a video hosting site, and posting the link here where it can be found and looked at.
This is solely to prevent false times being posted, and also checking legality of lap times.
