Hey,

Whats the best methods to use when your trying to get 0-100 times? Like whats the best way to time, without running off the road? Like should i get a mate in the car to time for me, but he might weight it down to much.

Any ideas on 0-100 times will be great, from launching, to braking. lol.

Thanks guys,

You can apparently buy a device which works out that sort of thing by measuring the geforces your car generates. No idea what they're called or where to get one though :P

Those GTech thingos look cool. I wonder how they could know how much power you car makes and how it knows how fast you are going, anbody know?

I'm also guessing the different ones for different cars are all the same.

I own 1 and its really accurate for 0-100 times.It has accelerometres in it and measures how quick the car is going. When it comes to horsepower readings you enter your weight and then race it on aprivate rd.

The horsepower figure is more for tuning your car.It gives averages over a few runs.In my first engine it gave me 170 hp consistently.When I shimmed it up the power felt much better and yes it read between 200 and 230 hp.
