Looks like he's using the Torque app. Not the most accurate method to obtain an acceleration test as the car is probably moving for a split second before the phone&app register the movement from the GPS positioning.

And your point......

Mabe he can and you can't
I've never tried to reach 100 km as early as possible.. So I dont know my performance.. Watch video below.. thats the actual acceleration..( meseems) As you see the difference between two videos and the two drivers way of driving.. (second one accelerates continiously without shift hesitate..)

we are talking about stock cars.. 165 bhp with remap is out of subject..On the otherhand, +/- 10 bhp is not credible..

Indeed, it does say at the beginning of the video, without modification "bez modyfikacji" (Polish).

I used something similar to time my Evo. First run said 5.0 seconds. Second said 3.8! Same piece of road, same day- a minute apart, and same launch control. They simply don't work for things this accurate.
