How Accurate is a G Timer vs a real 1/4 run???
I assume the G timer begins timing as soon as you move, vs the lights, which begin when you break the line.

Also on a stock Z, what is the best range one can get a 1/4 run(Stock tires).
Now new tires like a set of Nitto 555R2, not the drag radials, what is the range.
I assume if a aftermarket clutch is added, this will help the et's..

I borrowed a friend's G-timer for a few months and did 0-60 runs every so often on my very lightly modded(Halltech Stinger & B&B Bullets) 01 Z and got a best of 4.59seconds while spinning first. It's pretty damn accurate to me. Gives you a slew of useful info from 60 ft times to 0-10,0-20,0-30mph times,etc. Never got a chance to do a 1/4 mile run though. You can adjust for how it begins timing....12" rollout or no rollout. I believe car mags do a 12" rollout. Fun toy.

It's pretty close -- been down the 1/4 several times with it on and it was pretty darn close. The .1 of a second was what I remember it to be.

Mine ran about .3 faster than the actual et but the mph was right on. Every run was consistant with the others.

Also,I would get the Passport G-timer GT2 model....it runs for about $179. Lots of cool data features and is built very nicely. Gives more data than the G-tech.
