Anyone ever tried this G-Tech meter that is advertised in Summit for $139?
It mounts on your windshield and measures 0-60 times, calculates horsepower,
etc. Sounds really neat, just wondering if it was recommended or if anyone
would share their experiences, good or bad. I would like to see if my
horsepower mods really work, like headers etc.

I believe this has gone through here before, and from the talk I got, it
does work, really well. BUT only if you dial in the correct weight of your
vehicle, that is crucial to getting accurate #s.

I have used it actually on the track and can give you some insight. The Gtech
is a great device. It has been consistently only off by .1-.2 in the 1/4 mile
runs I have done. Using the HP mode and comparing it to actual Dyno runs at
Superchips, the meter was off by about 10hp, not bad really. Considering the
prices of Dyno runs can be up to $100 per hour for an extra $39 you can have
a pretty close number to what the "big" machines charge.

I've got one but never really done much with it. They've been discussed a
lot on a different car list I'm on. The accepted explanation for
differences between the G-Tech and timing slips at a drag strip are 1)
elapsed time starts from when the car starts moving, not from when you
break the timing lights and 2) speed is different because G-Tech is the
true instaneous speed at the end of the 1/4 mile while drag strips compute
your average speed over the last 60 feet.

Well there's been a lot of talk about FTE content on the 61-79 list, so I thought
I'd be sure and include some here.

Some of you caught my post on autocrossing last weekend in the rain/snow. But
we got much luckier this weekend ... and the FTE content ? Dad let me drive
his bone stock 53K mile 93 Lightning in the event! I've never driven it nearly
this hard before and I was amazed at how well it handled (for a truck). Its
not quite up to runnin with the Stang's on street tires, but man it was powerful
and fast! The auto took some getting used to (I realized I've only competitvely
run one other auto and several manuals), but it was a ball.

The full story is at http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.public.iastate.edu/~wish/Racing/Bill1.html

There are even a couple of MPG's on there showing the Lightning, including a
big powerslide finish on the first one.

hehehe...I'm still smilin and its been nearly 24hours ...
