I don't believe the entered weight on the g-tech has anything to do with its
0-60 and 1/4 miles times :-)  The weight is used only for the HP stuff.

I have found that the orientation is critical.  Body movement of the car
that takes the car, and the g-tech, out of the horizontal plane, effects the
measurement of acceleration.  Speed is derived from the acceleration, as is
