    Just seems with a hundreth you will have a lot of runs overlapping as time goes on and more people test. Are you sure you can't go to a thousandth with GPS? Doesn't it depend on the hardware recording?

    It's already been said you can try to mimic it but it will never build boost in the same way because it physically can't. There will always be lag for example. Why even bother having a turbo then?

    I ninja edited the quote. 40% of people would not be a correct statement. 2 to 3 odds

    Ok well a bookie has a 33% change Trump gets impeached by the end of the year. Just to show you how accurately you should take these things. If you really believe all this put money on it. What's the big deal?

    What Myself and others in this thread are trying to say is you can tune the wastegate to bypass more exhaust gasses in the midrange which would make the curve like that of a centi-SC. You can tune the turbo to scale boost linearly with engine RPM instead of just pegging the boost as soon as it spools. People aren't generally going to tune their car this way as you are leaving a lot of midrange torque on the table, however for a track car this extra torque could make the car harder to control, hence the linear boost scaling via tuning. You're right that it will never mechanically be identical as the mechanisms that the two operate off of are inherently different, however that doesn't mean a turbo car cant be tuned to deliver a similar torque curve as a centri-SC.

    It's programmed to the 100th of a second for everything as that is as accurate as GPS signals can be. Taking it out to 1000th of a second would come close to exceeding the resolution. Can always be extended in the software but I personally don't think it's a good idea.

    I'm quoting that site rather than polls because...as crying Hilary fans found out...they can be inaccurate.

    40% odds on it taking him out by 2019 (see link previously posted). Mueller has not even rounded third in investigation based on who he is currently calling in LOL. I think the majority need to be convinced they're not working together.

    The 60-130 doesn't go to the thousandth?

    Ok cool then sit back and watch rather than try to convince everyone Trump and Putin are playing for the same team.

    http://www.burgertuning.com/gps_performance_meter.html We've been involved in the testing of a nifty new product called Dragy. It's a small high speed GPS device that interfaces with your phone or mobile device via BlueTooth and allows you to accurately compute performance metrics like 0-60, 1/4 mile & trap speed, 60-130mph, 100-200kmh, etc. The resulting run files compute and validate slope, and spit out in a little graphic ready to analyze, share, etc. You charge it using a mini-USB port, with the charge lasting a few days (it only wakes up when connected to app), and then throw it on the dash and open the app when you want to start recording runs. It's magnetic so there are slicker mounting options available, but I haven't found them necessary on our test cars. I just throw it up in the corner of the windshield. We tested them at the latest Shift Sector and No Fly Zone 1/2 mile events and were very pleased with the accuracy and flexibility of the system. A few screen shots from my testing below. There are a few thousand in use in Asia with great success and we're helping introduce it to the English speaking market. The free Dragy app will be posted to the play store and apple store within a few days. If you happen to get the device before the app is posted just email us and we can send a link for it. Anyway much more info to follow, including their app based tuner leader board and other slick features, but I know you guys are going to love this thing. Wanted to make a comparison video but right now its Dragy 1, VBOX 0 Attached Images

    D????? That shit was fucking hilarious. Another shocker, I don't give two shits about HRC, Podesta, or Uranium One. It's like focusing on the popcorn vendor during the World Series.

    D for effort? Well the informant is going to testify and we may get a special counsel on the Uranium One deal soon. Which, by the way, did you know Uranium One is now, SHOCKER, Russian State owned?

    Hard to say. It's throwing a trans fault and major throttle closure at shift in lower gears. We have talked to chris at SSP, terry Christiansen and right now it's a process of elimination. Starting with the cheapest things first, battery, then fluids, if not it could be a clutch pack issue. We have to go through the steps to find out. I just put the project aside for a few weeks because I have a lot of other cars to wrap up and needed some cash. Got tired of fighting with it for 2 months.

    So these adv O2 sensors is the finally solution for single turbo users or not? i read many posts and some users don’t have any problem, and others have all the time. When a O2 sensor code happens to single turbo users does it set the engine to limp mode, or does only appear in the dash without loosing power;
