I agree with you guys, but its all I have to go on lol. Not to mention, I feel because it uses GPS and the OBD-II to measure 0 - 60 I figure it shouldn't be too far off, but hell maybe isn't isn't any better than those that use accelerometers to measure their times.

The only reason I'd love to know what others get for 0 - 60 is to see if their times are the same or worse than what your slips are telling you. But its no big deal of course.

WELL it's probably more accurate than the 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi method

Once I get my car I'll give it a shot.

Great find John. Time for me to go make some 0 - 60 runs and let it run out to the 1/8 mile and compare notes. According to the calculator I am running a best of 5.17 to 5.25

BillionareHero's video on that back road was filmed up to 100 MPH. You can calc the 0-60 halfway accurately.

Thanks,

Jesse!
