Tom, that second run gives you a 60-130mph of 17 seconds!! That's really slow! You can hit about 132-134 mph in 3rd with stock wheels and a stock 4 speed, you need to hit the rev limitter but you'll get there.

I've not heard of this GTech device, most use the Drifbox or AX22, but i don't doubt this device does the same thing. I've never bothered doing a 0-60 run, just don't think it's sympathetic on the car, it's a much better performace measurement doing a rolling start, wheel spin and clutch control don't really come to play then.
Looking at when you are hard on the throttle, with no gear change involed, 50 to 80mph comes up in 3.21 seconds which is respectable.

Would be really good if you could do a slow roll in 2nd from about 30mph, then plant your foot until up near the red line, change to 3rd and leave your foot there until you hit the limitter, that graph would be far more telling
