i have heard mix results about the g-tech. some said it was pretty accurate, and some said it was way off. i don't know. ah, to track your progress all you need is a butt dyno. mines is accuarte to the whp. when it's hot as hell, i feel a lost of 7 whp when the ambient temp. is 80º, and 13 whp when it's over 90º. :lol:

I have one, and I like it. I've never been to the track, though, so i'm not sure how accurate it is, but it gives consistent times, and the times I get for the 1/4 seem to match up pretty well with what other RS's with the same/similar mods run at the strip. It's a fun little toy, and it is usable for keeping track of whether a mod does anything or not. Even if it's not accurate for real-world numbers, as long as it's consistent, you can see what does what.

i have g-tech. it is somewhat accurate with the quartermile times. but when it comes to trapseed, it is pretty off. by like 5 mph. my bro ran 15.33 at 99.9mph. with injen cai in his 97 240sx. now that, is off.

They mention the trapspeed thing in the owners manual. The reason it's higher is that the G-Tech gives your speed at the end of the 1/4 mile, while at the track, your trapspeed is your average speed over the last 60 feet of the track. So you should expect the G-Tech to give 3-5 mph faster than the track.
