g-timers, how accurate?

Please don't flame, I searched. What I could not find is has anyone actually compaired the results from a g-timer to a drag strip slip??

I've heard they are about .4-.6 seconds off from 1/4 mile times, and a few mph off. The G-Force thing seemed pretty accurate...I don't know...I guess it's okay but I'd rather have something very precise...moreso than the g-tech pro.

One I am considering is the Passport g-timer by Escort. It claims accuracy of 50-100 milliseconds. (escortstore.com) Reportability provides continuous acceleration, turning, etc.. g-forces. Also calculates horspower after entering cars weight.
I was hoping for someone with expertise.

Yeah, I have the G-Timer 2, and I get about the same, consistently. It took me a good few tries to get the launch right, however. If I'm nicer to the clutch, I get a [email protected] run like C/D did. Seems pretty accurate.

Mounting the timer right is crucial. I got some exaggerated/inconsistent runs when I tried mounting it in locations other than the center of the windshield.

Maybe they are getting better then...I've used 2 and they were pretty early in their lifetime...so they probably weren't as good as these.

Thanks to everyone for the responses! I will prob. get the Passport. The basic unit is only $100.00 so it looks like a lot of fun for the buck.
Again, thanks, EXACTA

I got a GtechProo RR, nice self tuning tool for shift points, need to find level ground, plugs into any vehical fine tune you launches and shifting with this then take your baby to the track, instead of wasting money at the track and saying man i need to work on my launch or i'm not shifting right. it's a nice little practice tool. need to really set it up correctly and use it correctly to brag about the numbers, but i don't do that, that is what the track and dyno's are for i just use it as a practice and self tuning tool (driver perfecting)

they have a video posted on line that compares the 1/4 strip time to that taken by the g-tech.... it was exact.

furthermore, i was at a corvette expo/show this past weekend and there was a booth selling/promoting the g-tech SS for $185 shipped. i was going to get it but held off cuz im broke. i have talked to a few people with it and they all loved it.

any interest in a mass purchase of the g-tech? i can give them a call to see if they are willing to give us a deal if we purchase 10+. let me know if your interested. PM me or post here if you want details...
