  • Want to know your car's HP & Torque ???

    While I was surfing the web, I came across this site

    With This software, 2 pieces of resistor/coil and a laptop, you're able to measure your car's HP and Torque...

          HOLY CRAP does this thing sound way!!!! inaccurate.

          look at all the crap you have to enter:

          (from website)
          First you will need to gather some info on your car, including:
          Vehicle weight
          Transmission gear ratios
          Rear gear ratio
          Frontal area
          Drag coefficient
          Tire diameter
          Tire pressure
          Frictional loss of drivetrain

          weight, tire info....alright i can handle that, but who the hell is going to know the actual frontal area of their car, or for that matter the drag coefficient. i think this guy just made a program that crunches numbers based on an equation from a book he has. there is NO way you can tell your performance data by entering all that crap in yourself.

          oh well....

            Check this out...

            www.gtechpro.com

            Small (playing card sized) self contained accelerometer.

            Does HP, 1/4th mi, 0-60mph, 60-0, and lat/long Gs.

            I got one last year from my brother. Pretty neat but I haven't played with it too much. (Stopped going to the track + not too many good -uncrowded- driving roads around here.)

            Met the developer a while back at a time-trial/racing club. Really funny cool guy.
