Well taken care of GTech Pro performance meter with all the software and accessories

Always babied and never taken above 1.2G

This model will do both road race and autocross

Interfaces with PC so you can compare runs and do analysis

I had one of these, and it broke the first time I used (or tried to use) it.  GTech refused to service it since it was purchased through a reseller - it actually has to be purchased through GTech directly to be eligible for service.  Very interesting stuff.

On a more positive note, I have one and love it!  I just wish I could figure out how to sync the playback with video of my drives.

The interesting question is what new toy did you find to replace it, John?

Actually the GTech data is pretty easy to sync with video, google trackvision.

I use it regularly to sync the two - the only downside is no track map. You have to check their forum for the software to do the GTech conversion but thats a one time event, then you're set

Targeted new device is MaxQData taht will allow me to see data between runs more clearly instead of getting home and seeing where I wimped out in a corner or slalhom.

Sorry to hijack for a moment...

So I downloaded Trackvision last night and did a test video, but I had a heck of a time syncing the data to the video.  Do you have a method that you use to sync them, like a clapboard for a movie?  No matter what I did, it felt like the Gtech data was consistently either just a little early or just a little late...

I go into the gtech csv file and delete rows up to the point where I just start to accelerate (longitude G's start climbing) and then match that to the hood lift on the video. you can mess with the little sliders at the bottom of the screen to dial them in - I have been able to get pretty close on all mine, but it takes some time
