Post G-TECH/Pro Performance Meter?

Just saw this thing on Horsepower TV, a good episode but what's up with the scary chick at the beginning?

<a href="http://www.gtechpro.com/index.html" target="_blank">G-TECH</a>

Question is, can this possibly do what it claims? Seems too good to be true...

Great technology but I especially like the built in cup holder.

It works...well. We don't use timing lights for testing at our track anymore since these things became cheap enough to buy. Besides timing lights don't give you peak G loading in a corner like these devices can. The only problem with the original was it needed to be perfectly level during all testing or the accuracy was slightly out, not a big problem on stiffly suspended race cars but could cause inaccuracy with a drag car running 90/10 shocks.

I'm a believer after playing around with one...I only wish I could afford to buy one for myself. Hmmm...I wonder what my diesel Jetta turns for quarter mile times... :p

towncar, I'm a huge beliver in search before you ask as well but I didn't find any info on the pro version. Maybe I didn't search on the right terms...

4jaw, thanks for the info. I think I may try to get some buddies to go in on one with me.

Oh, and I found a <a href="http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_638947.html" target="_blank">link</a> for you. There is an easier way you know. Umm, Umm, good!
