Why would you assume that? Paranoid much? I not once named you. That's why you got banned from the other groups.


Anyway, How are JB4 timestamps read? Are they accurate?
Jb4 timestamps aren't accurate at all. Meltedsolid and I tried that a couple of years ago. They can be used personally to see your own gains or improvements, but they read fast. So they will day you are faster than you really are

Noted. Thanks for the info.

Not paranoid at all. It’s just common sense based on this response of yours:
You used and emphasized the word “stock” repeatedly which, when combined with the super fast and fake 60-100 Dragy time of low 3’s, is obviously a shot at me given all the recent “stock” and “OEM” Dragy result threads I’ve been posting of late.

This is a serious thread where John is trying to obtain results to compare his car to. Is there a reason why you would use the word “stock” several times and then post a fake 60-100 time?

The timing is also suspect with several others mocking me in a very similar fashion in just this past week.

The circumstantial evidence is overwhelming. Saying I’ve been banned from other groups further weakens your case.

For the record, I never once got banned for being paranoid.
Woah man, Put a tin foil hat on. I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm simply trying to share my results.

So this is with the jb4 stack? What APR tune are you on? How much boost? I know it was just the stage 1 originally. Did you ever fo the downpipe? Also, did you get the bugs worked out with the 6 spd?
The 6.0s 60-100 was IS20, APR Stage 1, JB4 stack, ~24psi, ~e23, 5 speed. Since then I've been running ~27psi+, e30, Downpipe, 6 speed.

As far as the feel, I was just barely spinning in 2nd on the 5 speed before, and now I take it for granted that I spin in 3rd on the 6 speed which is >20% longer. I swapped over to the APR IS20 software about a month ago; I haven't gotten the chance to mess with it yet, but I think I'm approaching a combo of stuff that isn't perfect but will at least work without worry with the 6 speed.

EDIT: The run I'm speaking of was before I got my downpipe. I should do another run, I'm probably in the low 5's now...

That sounds about right. Kristian was low 5's on APR is20 with the jb4 stack on the 5spd. He didn't have to shift for the 60-100. I have to shift at 93.
Is the 6spd working fine now? Did you get it all resolved?

So far it seems like updating to the newer software has solved the low power and boost while not thinking it's in gear issue, but I haven't logged to find out if it's solved the high AFR while not thinking it's in gear issue. If it's fixed that, then the only thing remaining is the gear indicator on the dashboard being wrong, which isn't very important.

Also, for my next 60-100 run, my new 4th gear is almost exactly the same ratio as my old 3rd gear, so I'll try both starting in 3rd and shifting and starting in 4th and leaving it to see which is faster.

My 2nd to 3rd picks up right around 57-58 mph in 3rd. So I just start in third around 45-50 for the best results

Is dragy the most accurate android gps drag app out there ? Others have much better ratings, such as TrackAddict by HPTuners...

Dragy is not an app. It's a stand alone gps device. It uses an app to communicate with the device. So while people might not rate the app itself high, the dragy unit is very accurate

For the record what have you been banned for other than being paranoid? I wouldn't have asked had you not said that. Sorry.

Thanks I don't care about any device. There are several android gps aps for phones, those are the only ones I am interested in. There is a "dragy" among them, but it is poorly rated. The highest rated on the playstore is "TrackAddict" by HPTuners (also mentioned on other forums as accurate), then "Drag racing HUD" by Auto Xtreme and "RaceChrono".
