.8 shouldn't be that hard to do. I pulled a .63 corner on an offramp without trying very hard. I could have been pushing it a lot more. One of these days I will get out there and romp it through a corner. With my new tires (255 45 17s) and the Addco F/R sways, and the STS STB, I can really feel the difference in the corners. Changing the tires surprisingly flattened out my corners quite a bit!

My first try was a .74, which I thought I could beat easy. Took a few tries to get the .80. That's a pretty hard way to take a corner. I think .85 might be pushing the limits for my car.

Let's see what you can do. Make sure that iPod is strapped down tight!

AA- hopefully we can make a go out of the Ipod dyno the weekend of the 27th? I didn't have luck at all the first (and only) time I used the app.

No problem if you have the time. I know a place where it should be pretty safe.

Well considering that these cars pull something like .78 Gs stock , its neat to show how the handling has improved. I'd be interested to see what a car with just good tires and a strut tower brace could pull. I'm sure its over .8Gs , which is still considered good by todays standards for a midsize FWD car , for a 10+ year old car that weighs as much as this one does , its very impressive.
I noticed the traction T/As made the corners flatter on my car too , never thought tires could make that much of a difference.

Did i just miss the pics of the new rim/tire combo or did you not post any?

Edit: just for fun i looked up some other roadholding numbers.
The previous generation 5 series , debuting after the riv , with sport package , pulled .82 Gs.
The mecedes E 320 with sport package , pulls .84 gs
Toyota camry ( new) pulls .78 gs ( base)
Nissan Altima pulls .83g
1996 328i with sport package pulls .87 Gs ( much smaller car)
04-06 GTOs pull .85 Gs.

The Riv ain't so bad looking at all that.

Found another app that looks like it might be even better than Dynolicious, putting more emphasis on road course racing. Track Day is $13.99. Link:

http://www.igoapps.com/page/detail/Track%20Day/2742/

Someone should give it a try, or else I may have to!

I recently tried this iPod app. I like it, because it gave me less-than-perfect numbers. This tells me it might be honest. My first run was a 2.8 sec 60', 0-60 mph in 6.9 sec, and 1/4 mile in 15.1 @ 92.0. HP was 260. Pulled .66 acceleration Gs! This all makes sense, because my street times are usually a little lower than at the racetrack. The road surface just isn't as sticky on most public roads, and not as level.

I think with a 2.1 sec 60' the car would be right on spec. I once ran a 14.7 at the track with a 2.4 sec 60'.

If you have an iPod touch, and are looking for a case, might check into the DLO HipCase leather folio. It's a nice case to begin with, but its leather belt clip is exactly the right size to fit into the console shift window groove next to the shifter. You can press it in and it will stay put for just about any type of driving:

I might be a little `late on this but I have a ipod touch and that case!! It is great and im buying this app right now and i'm going to test it out.

Yeah, that made me made me mad, too. On the bright side, the $10 upgrade gives you some improvements all around. For me, it was worth it to get the iCal upgrade for using multiple calendars. You also get some iPhone apps that are pretty cool. If you have more than one iPod Touch, you can update multiple devices with the same $10. I upgraded my GF's also.

You wouldn't lose everything on your iPod if you made the update on the same computer that your iPod was synced to, and you must sync all of your contacts, bookmarks, music, etc. BEFORE downloading. Tunes will make a backup and then reload everything after the update.

Has anyone heard anything about CarTrack? It is only $2.99 and looks similar.

I just got my Iphone 3G and download the Dynolicious app. I'll be testing it out within the next few days...

For better screen captures do this:

1. Navigate the iPhone to the screen you want to create an image of
2. While holding the Home button, press and release the Lock Sleep/Wake buttonYour screen will flash letting you know that the screenshot was taken
3. Navigate to your Camera Roll library (Photos)The most recent image should be the screencapture you just created

It'll make things easier to post.

Thanks for the tip, Kenon! FYI, the newest version of Dynolicious features exportable graphs. The graphics have improved, too!

Aaron,
Are you using a spreadsheet or something else to record and calculate your gas usage and mileage so accurately.

Yes, I use a fantastic application for the iPod Touch called "Car Care". Here's a link: http://www.karlbecker.com/carcare/

I like this because it's so convenient to whip out the iPod and just enter your fuel records at the pump, rather than keeping receipts or writing down mileage. Also, it will keep track of any type of maintenance, as customized and scheduled by you - so this thing reminds you when to change the oil, rotate tires, even lube the chassis or wash the car. It tracks multiple vehicles, too, using actual pictures of your vehicle. Best part is you can export all of your records to email for back-up purposes.

Not bad for $4.99.

Very cool and convenient. Too bad for me though as i don't have an iPod Touch.
I will be getting a Droid in the next week or so as a replacement to my current phone and maybe there will be an app for something like that.
I am finally going from a very basic wireless phone to a touch screen with more capabilities than I'll ever use.
Verizon has been begging us to upgrade as we are about 3 1/2 years since signing our last contract. And even then we opted for the free phones. Very minimal, but we've been happy with them. They have proven to be quite durable. But I've got the itch for something that can do more and it's a buy one get one free for only $100.00 with no increase in our contract price. At least until i start adding stuff.

I work for Verizon Wireless. The Droid Eris is a very cool phone. I actually prefer it to the motorola droid.

At first the Droid will seem overwhelming and you'll want to throw it against the wall, but once you get used to it, it's an awesome phone. Much better IMHO than the apple phone. I personally love my Blackberries though.

You'll be seeing some new plans popping up shortly from verizon too. wink
