Vbox sport needs a smart phone and is much newer, the other one is stand-alone and sticks to your windshield. If you don't already have a compatible smartphone with some way to mount it, you might be...

Thinking out loud here, but I really wonder if BMW wouldn't save more money by having an option to get your ECU unlocked if you sign away your warranty rights up front. If there was a process to do...

That got me some looks as I audibly chuckled at work, nice one ;)

The VIN isn't present as such, it is just a hash of the VIN. The only purpose the VIN serves, is to provide assurance that a given log file was collected from the performance device from a specific...

10hz is very common now, with 20hz next and the level above that is 100hz. At 100hz the data incoming from the GPS chip is such that it usually requires it's own processor, that's why there is so...

I used an app called Trackmaster on my android phone, it tied into an external 10hz GPS recorder (same as old vbox) and would also use the OBDII bluetooth adapter I had. Using that I had RPM data and...

I only started thinking about this because of this thread, but I've used so many performance devices and got into competing on the 60-130 thread on another forum for awhile so I have more opinions...

1-easily ID location- like with GPS? Data can be fabricated as mentioned before, GPS data from a device is not very incriminating because of this.
2-ID person - via forum username/IP/Email account?...

I'm not selling anything, and both cases you reference have video evidence that is easily identifying the location and in some cases the person, which is then tied to an online account that can be...

Sure, red light camera tickets in the 2 states I drive in each day are easily thrown out of court, because they can't prove who was driving. They have a crap-ton of traffic lawyers advertising to get...

He got it into 5th and ran it up there, but not to redline in 5th. Others put this video in the 140s, I was going to guess 150-160.
He had other videos though that he deleted, I was a regular...

Even as I refute your nonsense, I wonder if there is any point in explaining things to you, as you seem to have an axe to grind which is causing you to be blind to the obvious.
After all that,...

I had a Snowmobile shop in Utah(Brian Head) sell me a small dune buggy they had put a 150hp ski doo motor into, that thing was stupid fast for a 12yr old! I remember passing cars on the freeway,...

Nah, like Sticky mentioned the nitrous is really obvious in the logs especially when you might be able to see the IAT values.
Also nobody is suggesting posting personal information on the...

The ideal solution is a portable vbox like we have now, tied to an OBDII adapter (http://www.amazon.com/BAFX-Products-Bluetooth-diagnostics-Android/dp/B005NLQAHS). Then the vbox results would be...

I had an idea for a better vbox that would be effective for street racing, and is was a bluetooth sync between two vboxs that included a beep system/light tree that would tell both when...

If I had to guess, I would say it's a different car/bike that is very fast (or his car with different mods) and initially is full throttle but is then backed off for the 100-130 portion. If you want...

As Group.america has indicated, the vbox files are easily tweaked by a moderately skilled computer user. The trick comes with trying to make the graph make sense, given that the vbox reads G forces...

Son of a $#@!, they included the 60ft time! I've never seen that from a magazine ever, 1.7s 60ft on street rubber is pretty awesome but surely going to a DR in one of these could drop that 60ft time...

Yeah that's why I put in the lb/hp, C6 Z06 was 6.19 or something vs 5.42 for the new Z06.
I wonder if Chevy will do a real stripper model Z06 to pull that weight down for a track focused model.
11-11-2014, 02:35 PM
Yeah as low as 10.7 although that was "ranger" and people cry foul on him. The others that have done it are 10.9x @ 128-129 from what I remember.
I don't know how close the Pilot Cup tires are to...

Chevy claims a 10.95 @ 127mph for the 2015 Z06 8AT, lacking of course is the 60' time as usual. The MPH is kind of low, the 2009 Z06 was rated at 11.7 @ 125 according to Chevy's press release at the...

Anyone else get a chuckle out of dzenno lecturing BuraQ and Wedge? Deja vu thinking back to when he first started selling tunes and was the new kid arguing with Terry :P
Glad the thread cleaned up...
