Alrighty, well I've exchanged a few emails with GIAC (my tuner) AND even got the owner involved. Here are some replies:

Quote:
It is rather impressive and P3 gauges are rather accurate (have one in my S4 and CC myself) but that certainly is rather quick. I believe the local customer we worked with on his 2015 Golf R was close to that as well.

Considering you have better fueling than we do (91 vs 93) that also makes a drastic difference.

Second video did appear to be slightly faster. At least being fixed on the speed o needle it did.

Talked with the owner about this run and showed him. Even they think it's pretty quick. Owner said "that is scooting for sure. That is Porsche 911 0-60 times." However that also depends if the road is uphill or downhill and all sorts of other factors too.
Bottom line, there is no reason to believe the 3.34 is not accurate. Disclaimer, however, I was running a light fuel load I'm gonna take the car back out this weekend and try and back things up. Even if its a tenth off, I'm still in the 3.4s.

First vid is when I forgot to set the gauge. Second video is where the gauge was set and you can see 3.34. The road IS 100% flat and fresh asphalt. AND, not that its scientific, but I used my phone stopwatch and got 3.34 twice.

I asked about splashing the tank with e85 and they told me not to...but said 100 would make a noticeable different. Giggity.

I see no reason to doubt. I ran consistent 3.5 0-60 with slightly less mods. And most of my runs were in summer heat. Never had a opportunity in weather like this. I think it would have easily been 3.4

I think you are right to expect people to shoot holes in it. It does seem to be what normally happens.

The fact that it isn't a GPS based unit is the biggest drawback. It is good for comparing different setups or tunes on the same car. The biggest issue is it is using the speed based on the info the car sends it. Is it the actual speed or the speed they tell the speedo to read? It is well known that many German cars have the speedo that read higher than their actual speed. You can google it. My tuner for the BMW has an option to show the actual speed in the digital display. It is easy to see the speedo reads 3mph over the actual speed in the digital display. It is also easy to see as a GPS will show the speed differently than what the speedo says.


I am sure the car scoots. I'm not doubting that. It would just be interesting to see how it compares to the Dragy. As well as your car versus other cars with the Dragy. So post up results with the Dragy versus this unit.

I'll for sure post comparisons. And I'm not taking this as gospel but to think its WAY off is would be silly.

My radar detector does gps and its pretty much spot on with my speedo 99% of the time.

Either way, its still awesome to see those numbers.
