I have a couple of GTech runs but no official track numbers, I would like to compare the numbers I have gotten on a couple of runs. I have tested the GTech many times in my Neon and the GTech is accurate (+- 0.10) about 95% of the time when I'm on level ground with no wheel hop, which has been the case with the spd6.

I have three runs with almost identical numbers, this is the one with the best launch:
1/4 mile: 13.75 @ 100.5
1/8 mile: 8.8 @ 78.4
330 feet : 5.68
60 feet : 1.93
0-10 : 0.35
0-20 : 0.85
0-30 : 1.53
0-40 : 2.73
0-50 : 3.75
0-60 : 5.40
0-70 : 6.83
0-80 : 8.85
0-90 : 10.93
0-100 : 13.40

I don't have the whole shootin' match committed to memory, but the critical 3 numbers I have reached using a G-tech are:

0-60 5.40 & 5.38
1/4 both 13.85
Trap speeed 97.7 & 99.6

I don't know why the trap speed varied when the measures didn't, but this is the best of what I've gotten with the temperature in the high 50's, in the morning, at the end of my 30 mile commute.

Unless these numbers are from the exact same run (meaning you were using the gtech while you were going down the track), you can't say his numbers are wrong. You gotta realize how inconsistant our cars are, plus driver and track condition inconsistantcies.

I think he said that he was wrong... like he put the wrong numbers down.

My May 22 post (13.75 1/4) was wrong (bad) numbers.

Then I did run down the track with the Gtech on. Tells you how accurate the Gtech is when it is setup correctly. I originally had the gtech mounted just above the ash tray, below the climate controls. It is a bad position, doesn't measure correctly. Once I moved it to the windshield, I got the same numbers as the track.

I ran my car with the G-tech and got some 5.4x? 0-60. Look for my post with G-tech in it and my name. The numbers were accurate there.

From the numbers I see you're close to what these cars are running.
