Post your GTech/Dynolicious results here

I'm interested in seeing acceleration data from GTech (or iPhone apps)

Here are a few runs on a 1LT...88 degrees...automatic - not in M or sport mode

L99 A6, M mode - TC off
Don't have a graph (older version G-Tech) and I only did a 0-60 mph run.

S.W. Florida - hot, very humid, and sunny
0-60 mph - 5.22 sec

I like mine and it works really well. I got mine because I like to play around and see if different mods are helping.

Going to the track is more accurate, but some people don't live close to a track. And I've found my G-Tech to be very accurate. I've always run very similar times at the track. To be honest, my actual track times are usually a little faster than my G-tech times, but there's within a few tenths. But that's most likely due to the sticky track prep which allows for faster launches.

I like mine....although they are a bit pricey (considering the apps you can get for iPhone now). I don't really pay much attention to the hp/torque #s that the gtech calculates - I'm really only concerned with acceleration when making tunes....I think it's the best way to compare apples to apples, because your 0-60 time can vary on how well you launch and just how well you drive in general. However, if you're just looking at Gs...you can have a terrible launch, etc.. and still see a difference in max/average Gs
