Got a Passport G-Timer GT1 today.Man it's tough to find an open stretch of road mid afternoon to get a couple of 1/4 mile passes in safely.Took awhile on the freeway for enough space to get a few runs in.First pass in drive was a unimpressive 15.10 at 91 mph.Then I tried one shifting manually.But I accidentally started off in 2nd gear(oops).When I realized I was in second I downshifted into 1 st and managed a 15.35 at 92 mph shifting at 5500 rpm.
I got one last run in loading the converter to 1500 rpm and shifting manually at 5000 rpm.Resulting in a 14.80 at 95 mph pass(at an altitude of 2192 ft).Best 0-60 was 6.45 seconds.
This is great little unit for trying out different launch techniques and shift points to see what works best.In the advertisment and on the package it says the GT1 only has one memory recall but much to my surprise mine holds 10 runs in its memory!!!:thumbsup

I have a G-Tech Pro, so far the best Ive managed to get is a [email protected] I have no traction though. Ive already changed the upper control arms so maybe when I do the lowers I can get some decent traction because right now if I try to launch at full full power I just sit and spin........stupid traction.

All you have to do is plug it into the lighter. But you will have to put in some basic info. (with the Pro unit.) Like the cars weight and it will ask you to run through some basic setup steps. Nothing major.
