Congratz will.... awesome time.

I guess the only way to be certain of the time, is to go over everything, and try it again. If you hit close to the same #, I'd say it was accurate.

I know you should enter in the total weight of car, driver and everything.
Try making a run in each direction if you can, take the average of the two. If your "run" was down hill at all, it will make the GTECH read faster.

Wow those are great times, if they're accurate.
You must be kicking out 350 hp now.

The best way to measure the weight of your car is to drive it onto the weigh scales at your local recyclers. Most will charge you the minimum amount just to weigh it, as long as they aren't too busy. They will also weigh both the front and rear for accurate weight distribution figures.
Mine weighed in at 3810 lbs with me out and a full tank of fuel and nothing else in the car.

I'm betting there'* something fishy. That'* too fast for my car, even with these mods. Once I get this thing set up right, I'll make some more runs and do some averages. I like this new Gtech, but it'* gonna take awhile before I develop any trust in it'* data.

I don't have any clue what kinda power you are making with your mods, because I am not a Series I person, but high 13'* doesn't sound that far off to me. The only way to really tell is go to the track, but it isn't that far off. I am not one that trusts the G-Tech pro too much, just because of my experiences with it, but it could easily be a ligit time. If it is...Congrats Will!!!!

I don't know, stupid crazy fast is pretty fast.

Let me explain stupid crazy fast.
It a post on ClubGP a few days ago, a member installed an intercooler on their already highly modded GTP, that before the intercooler ran a best of 12.817. So he puts on the intercooler, smaller pulley, and bumps the timing up to 30 degrees (from 22), and puts in 3.29 gears, and went out and drove the car and blew away modded Mustang Cobra'* (and also lost to a few, but thats beside the point). Well, when he posts it on the forum they asked if he felt a difference with the intercooler on now. He replied with: the car is stupid crazy fast now! I found that kinda funny. But the car is fast, I have to agree, after all, now it should run 12.4-12.5ish at ~110mph.

you need to make a few runs with it in record mode to get it set. then take it to the track and when you prestage, it the OK button. then stage. it will record your run, just dont have the tree on. use the tracks tree.

Drinking? I wish. I'm still at work. Had a little fire here an hour ago. Really gets the adrenaline pumping.

I almost walked right through the beam.
