I have the competitor to the G-Tech, the 'Tazzo Performance Computer.'
When I got it a couple of years ago, it was much better than the G-Tech. It is clearly awesome!
G-Tech now has a new model that is every bit as good as the Tazzo, and it appears to have a much better graphic display. I would probably take the new G-Tech if I had a choice.

Time to go to Sac Raceway for a saturday test and tune, 10am - 3 pm. I think you'll find someone competitive.

Stoker,
Just don't leave your arm hanging out the window while you're making your pass!

Ryan

P.S.
In case you forgot, temperatures don't change at 0-mph or 120-mph; only if you have evaporative moisture available (like exposed skin) does wind chill come into play...

You don't need "naws"! I outgunned a Viper just the other day with my 331. I had to let him go around at 130 though, I'm still breakin' it in.
