94Regal is on a distinguished road

Weight does not affect 0-60 times for the accelomometer.

Since it uses a sensor which calculates acceleration and velocity over time to calculate 0-96 km/h ( 60 mph ) , weight is a useless factor.

The Gtech is hence an extremely delecate sensor which calculates G-force and an extremely simple equation of T= (v-u) / A

A being acceleration, V final velocity, U starting velocity, and T as time.

Someone correct me on the equation if im wrong, I thik im fairly close...
