I've used one MANY times, they are a bit of fun and an average indication. Dont take them as super accruate though. Only accruate mesurement is the drag strip.

Re: G-Tech Meters

Ive heard the latest version one is pretty accurate.

I cant remember if its 1tenth or a few hundredths of a second off, but ive heard theyre pretty good.

Re: G-Tech Meters

the weight entered has to be spot on to get the most accurate results

they can be a good tuning tool still, as in testing mods back to back .etc.

0-60mph they appear to be VERY accruate.
1/4 mile times can be anywhere from 0.05 to 0.2 seconds out (usually they are too generous) from my experiance.
I never tried to measure HP, thats what a dyno is for if you really need to know.

Re: G-Tech Meters

you dont put in a weight to do the acceleration times. Its based on G-Forces regardless of weight.
I didnt use the HP calculator.

Re: G-Tech Meters

Only need weight for HP calculations. Throw your car onto a weigh bridge with you in it to get the weight.
