i got the g tech rr and i just had to test it out :D so i did few runs and my best was 60'=2.2, 1/4=14.3@97.8 -- 0-60=5.7/ the temp was 5 and with my bold tires i coudnt get grip, when i got heat in them i did the 5.7 if i kept on goin i'm sure i would of done lil beter, but need to same the rubber for thursday :D

what do u guys thing?

ah so you were the one i gave up the RR too .. congrats, i just couldnt afford it at the time. those are some pretty decent numbers too. is that your full mod list in the signature?

sorry man, if u want we can test it out on ur car too hehe.... *th-up*

yeah.....nothing big really...i'm not sure what time stock time for 1/4 mile is.. i was hopping for 14sec lol, i just need to work on my lunch, it's hard when it's cold and u got a bit of rubber to work with, like a month ago or soo i did a 0-60 run with rico and his timer and my best was 5.83 or soo, so i'm getting better :D

i did a quick run with the e30 and i got 7.7 0-60 :P

as u can see in the pic bellow as the time went by and i wormed up the tires the times got smaller so there is always improvement
what about the 60ft times? can they go lower?? i don't even know what exactly they are/mean:confused: :confused:

man i know nothing about these things, but they sure seem cool. supposedly my car stock is supposed to run 14.9, so 14.3 in a heavier car (albeit with more power) seems very good!

04-30-2006, 03:46 PM
14.9 is good, so then the 330 stock should be around there, maybe even less... so i guess i have lil bit room for improvements :D

60ft times are hard to get lower, because it really usually depends on how well you react and how well you hook.

0-60 in under 6 is pretty good. I know the feeling*smoke*

so does it effect the 1/4 mile time ?


so the lower 60ft time the better 1/4 mile time i will have?

I believe, (someone chime in here) that 60 ft is your reaction time, and how fast you pace the first 60 feet. The faster you react, the lower your 60 ft times, and the lower your 60ft time, the lower your 1/4.

once again, i may be wrong, not sure

yeah thats what i hear too... thanx*th-up*

yeah thats what i hear too... thanx*th-up*With the g units used in the test's, reaction time is not a factor. You're not reacting to the start of a timing device, the unit starts timing as soon as it detects launch - Your times would not be as good if reaction time was added e.g. 1/4 mile at a drag strip...

i used g tech pro RR, and if u want u can set it up to reaction time..... whats the point to that i just wanted to know my 1/4 mile as soon as i start!

when they test 0-60 they dont include reaction time.... well anyways on the way home form the track my car just did 5.3 and 13.58@107.55,, lol i dunno how but it did....

yeah i do it at nite when there isn't too many cars around, i do few runs and leave *th-up*

yeah i love the Gtech, it gives u the REAL HP and TRQ #'s, unlike the dyno's *th-up*

Well, i dunno about a g-tech being more accurate than a dyno, but its a great way to see if your mods are paying off!

I have a G-tech as well, I wouldn't say it gives you real HP numbers. On a dyno aerodynamics don't come into play. Plus you need to have your car accurately weighed, fuel and driver weight always changes. Also, with a G-tech rotating mass is also a factor, so lighter wheels, flywheel, brakes will give you more HP, which isn't really true.

What I did was this:

-I found a straight, level, smooth 1km strip of pavement.
-I picked a weight (until I get my car weighed), I chose the stock curb weight (3120lbs).
-I weighed myself before the run and added that to the cars weight in the g-tech.
-I fill my fuel tank before every session to keep things sort of consistant.
-I make sure it's calm and windless
-Other variables are harder to get (temperature, air pressure), I go at night due to the location.
-If I'm doing a power run, I'll quickly surge in 1st gear to abot 3000rpm, then short shift though the gears until I'm in 3rd at about 1500rpm. Then go pretty much WOT from 1500-7000 to get a full dyno plot.

I generally get pretty repeatable results, in 3rd gear I'm not going to ever peel out, although the wind is a factor at the higher rpms (about 140km/h near redline).

When I took my G-tech to the track, I set up the 12" rollout and i was getting within 0.05 seconds of my actual trap time, and like 0.5mph difference from my trap speed.

Here is an example between M3 cams and stock cams (with some random but consistant number for weight, I think I had 3600lbs or something entered into the G-tech):

[QUOTE]


well it does give u real hp numbers that you have/able to use in real life with aero drag and all, true with the weight loss but still it's KINDA like more hp that you can use...well in that case the dyno ratings are off too since aero drag isn't deducted from it.... well anyways it's a cool and fun toy :D


what numbers did u get with ur car?
