Anyone owns one?
Are they accurate in detemrining 0-60, 1/4 mile...
What else can you do with them?
Worth the $?
Best place to buy them


Thanks

ive known a few people with them, and they are very accurate if you calibrate them to the car properly.

ive seen whp readings that were 1-3hp off actual dyno numbers. and 0-60 times are dead on.

lap timer is cool too.

They are cool little devices never wanted to pony up the funds, even though two times on the Dyno would pay for it.

I have one. 1-3hp difference could be reflective on the weather at the time. They work well and mine is very consistent with track timers.

from the G's achieved in acceleration. You input your cars weight to make the equation accurate.

I had one of the original little black-box G-Techs from way back in the day. I wouldn't trust that one further than I could throw it.
The new ones, however, are great. The reason they have a bad rep from some people is because the overwhelming majority of owners don't know how they work or how to make them accurate. I've made nearly 300 runs with a dozen different cars, and I'm very impressed.

Josh did you get rid of the little black one you have or is that the one you still use? I have one of the little black ones myself. the HP is never accurate, the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are pretty much dead on.

the hp feature should be treated like a dyno... strictly to measure incremental gains.

I have my old black laying around somewhere...
