Lightbulb Nitro

Have you used your trinity to measure your 0-60?

I haven't , i really baby it, but am curious

All I am running is the 93 tune

I wish it measured the lateral g's like the ol gtechs used to do.

I am wondering what my lateral g's are now.

Not as yet. I did do a informational engine run up to see what the *93tune was capable of. At this point I have not taken interest in doing acceleration or skid pad data acquiring. I am not up to the point of making any suspension changes yet. Besides at this stage my results will be much different then yours. In the power range I am pretty sure that I am higher then yours ( you baby your PTwhich effects the output over time) which means traction permitting my 0-60 will be quicker. The lateral g readings may come close because I run a rear sway bar on stock suspension while you run the stiffer springs and lowered beyond reasonable handling limits of the suspension design. A stiffer suspension does not mean better handling! That comparison even within my own PT would be of interest to compare the before after I change to my target of suspension improved handling characteristic's.
One thing I have already done compared a few things with the DST and the Ultragauge. I was pleased to see that the Ultragauge is almost exactly the same as the DST. Makes it easier because I have my Ultragauge dash mounted and use it all the time.

He would need to aggressively change his driving habits for a few days so that the ECU could adjust changes enhancing the engines output

I do have the perfect street to do it on. No one parks in the street and there are no dogs off leashes and kids chasing balls!


*the Diablosport 93tune was badly named because it is presumed that you must run 93+ plus octane to use it, which is not the case at all! It shows how many un-experienced with ECU mapping and data logging have given mis-information about it!
