Default 0-60 possibilities

I would like to accurately get (at least with a +/- .5 sec) a time of my 0-60mph run. Been doing a little research, and looks like the closest POV or non professional track to me is two hours away, which stinks. I have seen a lot of members use the G-Meter(?) for timed runs, then the rest used the track times. Is there another way to get this reading for my car? Or would anyone like to take a guess at least? I have a feeling a stopwatch is not really acurate or I would have tried that allready. Take a look at my sig for the details, my wheels are 21lbs each, and just did a full tuneup (sensors,filters,fluids,etc...) A website I looked at said I should be pushing the high 7'*, but I dont think I am doing that, but dont know for sure. If all else fails, I will probably make the trip to the track some day in the summer. Thanks

You really need to go to the track for accuracy. The g tech will work as well some lap top computer programs allow you to time yourself, autoengenuity, digimoto will both allow this.

would maybe a passenger running the stopwatch be more accurate? You could probably get it to the tenths of a sec.
