(Late reply), but why is it that GPL Rank was so massively satisfying, yet the rank versions of other games is not? Assetto Corsa even has a game mode dedicated to a rank style hot lap (and even uses the GPL Rank Monza benchmark as a nod to its origin), but yet it isn't as satisfying.

It is strange that. I've been hotlapping at the Glen today - must have done about 60 laps, but still haven't beaten my 2004 best! Mind you, I did beat my best Lotus time at the Glen yesterday, again 13 years after I'd set the previous time. It's been the most satisfying sim experience I've had for..... 13 years!

Even iRacing has now jumped on board with a globalised hot lapping system (Time Attack) but nothing beats GPLRank.

For me, it was a two pronged attack - 1) beat the benchmark time and get that negative GPL rank time. 2) see how you compare to others around the world especially if friends were also on there. I was never going to be near the top but felt good when I once made the top 100 in Australia

Yep. I did finally set an overall new best in the Lotus at the Glen. Way off the 'aliens', but really pleasing to do it as I never thought I'd get near my 13-14 year old times again - and still using the same wheel and pedals!

Re-installed GPL again (with the latest all in one installer) and worked a treat out of the box in Win10. Except for the steering - pedantic I know but I don't want to change from 900 deg but in GPL the cars have too little movement (understeer basically) and too heavy steering with a G27. Can I change the steering lock in the sim to correct this or should I just suck it up and change the wheel in Profiler to go 540 deg.

Not sure about that. With my venerable Momo Force i don't seem to get that many options. I constantly get the pedals combining but if I unplug the wheel (and thereby the pedals) in the calibration screen, they separate again.....
