    bro it's only good to compare with itself, before vs after mods, other cars using it.
    best thing to do is take it to the strip and compare the gtech times to your printout.

    Steady on edgy....
    This is some kind of 'meter' thingy. What's the horsepower bit mentioned last on the box? That seems an unlikely measure from a box out of moulded plastic packaging.
    Asnaka (sic), pounds are kilograms times 2.2 ish. Have you posted pics of this car yet? I wanna see it please.

    Configured correctly, they're known to be quite accurate Asanka.

    I bought an AC22 meter instead of a G-tech, but have used them both similtaneously and they are most often within a tenth of a second of each other down the quarter mile. Thats good enough for me

    The AC22 predicted I had 99kw in the 306, which isn't far off the manufacturer quoted 100kw.

    The weight of the S1 must be about 890. It's hard to tell because they're a mix-match of the 1.6 (which weighed 875) and the 1.9 (which weighed up to 910).

    To save you all that clicking, i went through the motions, and 890kg is 1962lbs.

    Here's a site i found accidentally a few weeks ago, it's just some overview of the g-tech.
