RE: Gtech + speedometer error = ???

... the reason you slow down is so that the G-Tech doesn't think that you
are attempting a quarter-mile run.  I remember when I was doing the 0-60
tests on the V8 there was a time I thought I slowed down, but the G-Tech
didn't agree.  The 1/4 mile times were pretty disappointing ... :-)

Since we're on the subject ... at that time I also noticed the system would
not accurately work for 60-0 tests.  I really wasn't too worried about it at
the time, but it was surprising to see.  Perhaps you really have to do a
good job of leveling the unit so that the accumulated error is small.
