How accurate are those g-techs?

I have seen the commercials, but no idea how good they are.

I guess as long as they are consistent, you can get a feel for how good one run is vs. others at a minimum.

I think our cars are rather capable, but the way they are set up they seem to suffer rather badly from axle-hop. Have you been doing anything to alleviate that in your tests?

I dont feel any axle hop, but there may be some, when a let go of the clutch it feels like a perfect launch just with tire spin, i dont know how else to say it.
