It's a measure of the "g" force (i.e. fraction of the gravitational force) created by turning. A reading of "1.0" means the car caused a force equal to earth's gravity on the surface of earth. Some call that turning force centifugal force.

.50...00...74? I expect more. I've still got 1.28...00...1.20 on there from my last trip to the track. :)

That is incrementally and annoyingly higher than my Dragon-induced peaks...I should at least take a pic. It'll last longer.

80439Learn to love the meter! I have this awesome turn that I get to enjoy everyday on the way to work so over time and with different tires I have been able really come to enjoy my little g-force game. The last tires were Bridgestone Potenzas (exact model forgotten) they were like $1100 mounted, balanced, out the door. Maxed .96 on the G-meter with those. My newest tires, Nexen 7000, are noticeably less grippy (oddly stable and predictable though) but were $600 mounted and out the door, so I can live for a while. I seem to only get .90 with these tires.

Geez...so what is the limit for the V1 and V2 meters? V1 seems to be 1.29.

Not to burst any bubbles here, but these are peak readings afterall. The car rags publish what's attainable on a more continuous basis. Those tend to be lower.



No pics and not to brag, but I was sporting a 0.74 and a 0.65 for the longest time. :rolleyes:

I think it is obvious to everyone that we aren't pulling way over 1G in steady state in an unbanked corner, when the car was originally rated for probably barely 0.90.

I'll say. I pulled over 1g with my snow tires on doing donuts.
