Great minds think alike.

I’ve wanted to use my GTimer on our MKX.

 

Looks like he launches at about 18, 1900 RPM.

The video stops at about :06?? just short of 60, Edges' are supposed to do it in the high :07's.

 

Speaking of 60.

I won’t bet the next paycheck but I would bet a LOT that an indicated 60 is really 58 or 59 MPH.

 

I’ll take my GPS and camera when I get a chance to make a couple of 0 to 60’s.

My speedometer reads one mph higher than my GPS at a steady 60. This is the most accurate speedometer I have ever had on a new vehicle!

On one of the BMW forum’s they have a link that states it is against German law to sell a car in Germany that reads the TRUE speed of the car, THEY have to show you’re going faster than you are.

 

When I put (Edit: change +1) +0 tires on my F250 the speedometer and 3 GPS’s all agree, before it was 2 MPH slower than the GPS.

 

A friend received an extended warranty from a “class action” because not only did his 06 Honda speedometer read wrong but so did the odometer. Which is pretty bad on their part, it was hurting their C A F E.

For some strange reason, all Suzuki Motorcycles and scooters read 10% faster than you actually are going. My wife's Hyundai SanteFe's Speedometer id dead nuts on--- after I went one size larger with the tires!

Obviously I need to work on my launch.

I’ve always noticed how easy it is to spin the tires.

Here’s my best effort and a couple other pics.

 

I was surprised at how accurate the speedometer is.

I have 2 GPS units and both read within 1 mile to the speedometer. I'd call that very accurate.
