0 to 160 km/h test

0 to 160 km/h test
Originally uploaded by crufty
Bought a RaceLogic PerformanceBox recently and have been having some fun with it. It measures vehicle performance using GPS. Overall the hardware is pretty decent, although the software is a little clunky and could be better. For instance, the main icons and menus take up 1/5th of the screen real estate.

Anyway here are some tests done on an full-weight Evo 8. Figures include gear shift times:

130-160 km/h: 2.17s
120-150 km/h: 2.10s
110-140 km/h: 2.3s
100-130 km/h: 2.15s
90-120 km/h: 2.08s
80-110 km/h: 1.92s
70-100 km/h: 1.85s
60-90 km/h: 1.79s
50-80 km/h: 1.80s
40-70 km/h: 1.72s
30-60 km/h: 1.38s
20-50 km/h: 1.33s
10-40 km/h: 1.30s

4th gear:
140-169 km/h: 2.31s
130-160 km/h: 2.15s
120-150 km/h: 2.07s
110-140 km/h: 1.98s
100-130 km/h: 1.96s
90-120 km/h: 2.06s
80-110 km/h: 2.58s

GT35R, no alcohol/nitrous/race gas/water injection, 1.7 bar boost, street tires.
