It doesn't include reaction time. It starts measuring time when it senses movement of the car and it calculates speed from acceleration rates. Compare G-tech times to G-tech times. Not to times from x-mas tree start times.<p><i>: <br>: I've heard, and read, that it's quite effective. But I have been recording some incredible times lately.<p></i>

Again ... Reaction time (RT) does NOT enter into the picture at all when it comes to elapsed time (ET). How "deep" (close to) or "shallow" (far away) you stage your car from the starting line (depending on front tire diameter) WILL affect ET. The general rule is: Deep stage will (usually) result in better RT, but a slower ET; a shallow stage will (usually) result in not as good a RT, but due to more of a running start (roll-out) at the starting lights, a better ET will result.<p>Reaction time >>> the time between the green light and when your car starts the clocks <<< is NOT included in the timing of your car as it goes down the strip. A good RT in eliminations, with a consistent car / driver ... WILL win you some rounds! FYI

Maybe I need to get back to the track.

The main problem with the G-Tech is keeping the unit flat. The reason most people get incredible times is because when accelerating, cars tend to squat in the rear. This adds to the angle of the G-Tech making the unit think it is accelerating faster than it really is. The Coupes rear end tends to squat quite a bit, just look in your rear view when you launch out of first. For instance my G-Tech gave me a 1/4mile reading of 13.2 at 104 when in reality my best time at the track was 13.63 at 100.6. I made sure to level the unit as best as possible, but when it dives, the unit reads a faster time.
