    This will be more apparent with high revving engines, but think about the torque curve and why it may be a good idea to spin the wheels so much (for a simple RPM limiting LC system).

    It is a clear front runner off the line.

    Thijs, Z, et al.,

    I asked again. This run was in fact the "real" run at FSG.

    One thing that could be "unprecise":
    The 30cm mark could be a bit more to the right and therefore a larger area under the curve (if it's not from 0,22s to 3,52s but rather from 0,28s to 3,58s or something).
    The Sensor is not that accurate at really low speeds.

    I would not think that FSG runs Accels that are too short
