Hello, first post :)
I've been fiddling around with RC a little bit until my "race car" is running again, and I was wondering how accurate performance testing is from a standstill.
In particular, it appears to take some time before the timer starts to run when taking off. Since I have no more accurate way to verify the times I thought i'd see if anyone ever did any comparitive measurements.
I did a 0-60mph run in my daily driver and I thought the time seemed perhaps a tad optimistic but not impossible.
Using 5 Hz BT Qstarz.
I imagine that performance test with a rolling start might be more accurate than those from a standstill?
As a side note, perhaps it could be a future modification to the 1/4 mile performance test to show "end speed" not only as the actual speed at 402.xx meters but also in the same way as drag strips do (average speed over the last 60ft)
Hope to record some nice laps of the Nurburgring in a few weeks.
