AED times

10 years after installing my AED,etc , I finally get a gtech RR to see how fast this bird really is. I dont know how accurate this thing is, but I have these results with wheelspin. Only made 1 run . Car weighed 4060 at the dumps scale.
1/4 13.839 @104.72
60' 2.406
330' 6.122
1/8 9.106 @ 83.75
1000' 11.679
60mph 5.408

Any comments on how to analyze these results?

duh?

I would have done that if the nearest track wasnt 100 miles away. The gtech is just a toy and was curious how it really relates to real track times.........

Not an excuse, the closest track to me is 150 miles away and I make the journey when I can...

LOL, why do I drive 140 miles to the track?

The G-tech can be semi accurate but there are some exceptions.

IF it is accurate, your short times are slow but you're doing ok on the top end.

125 miles to the track for me. I make the trip at least twice a year.

The only way to "analyze" your data/results is to take the unit to the track and run it against the track timing and compare the results. Otherwise, I'd have to agree with Driller...

"IF it is accurate, your short times are slow but you're doing ok on the top end."

Find out when the local track is open for a test & tune and get your car down there.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

What kind of set up is on your AED car?

I had a stock NPI, 373 gears, MTs and little things here and there.

If I were to do it all over, I would have gone with a SVO supercharger kit. Those Tork Tech kits are a waste of money when somehow the Carolina guys are running 11's and low 12's all day with the SVO. I don't know why I ever messed with AED or thinking about the Tork Tech. Not doggen you Blown96Bird, just giving my .02

You need to go over to sccoa. The guys down your way go out quite a bit. They go to Genro's and hit up the 1/8 mile at Hertford.
