Playing with a G-tech Comp

Well, I have the use of a G-tech Pro Competition for a couple weeks. I've been debating between getting either a G-tech Pro Comp, or a Race Technology AP-22..... anyway...

Here is the info for my car from me playing with it.

1/4 mile - 14.731 @ 95.58 (compared to 14.759 @ 92.60 at St. Thomas)
0-100 - 7.302 seconds (in 115.9 meters)
0-200 - 28.2 seconds (in 1050.3 meters)

I haven't gone out for any braking runs yet.

I don't have (accurate) hp and torque numbers because I took a wild stab at the car weight (with me and fuel), I'll have to get it weighed soon.

The unit itself is actually pretty cool, it samples g's 100 time per minute, which is really good, it self levels itself everytime you do a timed launch, it's actually very accurate with pulling the rpms from the cigarette lighter (once the RPM's have been calibrated).

The software that comes with it is pretty good too, and it allows you to export it to a spreadsheet so you can manipulate the data all you like.

My main complaint, it's very straight line oriented, there is supposed to be auto-x/road course software coming out soon though. The unit doesn't store any lateral g info at all either, but that will change with the next firmware appearently.

I'll keep you posted on my trucks performance numbers too!!

with that higher trap speed, considering your on regular tarmac you could potentially take 2-3 tenths of a second off, looks like the Gtech is really accurate! I used the older one once, but i thought it was off, (slightly uphill etc etc)

This run was done on what seemed like a pretty level section of road. I know I know, I shouldn't be going that fast on public roads (not even at 3am when no one is on the road)

Yeah, my tires suck in cold weather, so I can't just floor it in first, and my clutch is starting to slip slightly in 2nd and 3rd.

Not bad times at all!
I am still waiting for my GtechPro (not the comp.) to come in the mail this week so I can play around with it. If i like it, I'll upgrade to the comp. model.

i did but my buddy has the older unit, the time was off for sure

i hit a 15.6 all motor b4 turbo, but it was slightly uphill and i didnt get a good 0-60 run... not sure what it would have done with turbo.

man 14.7 is great though, seriously force some air in there and you`ll be more then happy but anyway thats quick enough to hang with some faster cars, like a 350Z or s2000!

I don't think I'll be going the FI route yet, I like the engine response of a naturally aspirated car.

Yeah, don't even get me started on that, personally I'd go supercharger, but that's just because of what I do with my car.
