For all those who don't want to get into iphone land - but still own a gps equipped windows mobile phone (htc diamond, etc) there is an application now available for the same. This works using gps and is more accurate and is free !!
Currently the full version is under construction but yeah soon we will have a full working car performance meter on windows mobiles

Is it possible to get this software free on the iPhone?

I read in another thread that there is a way to get any of the App Store stuff without really paying?

Yes, it is possible. Just do an "<app name> ipa download" search in Google.
Updates are only for those who buy the app, though. Still might become available eventually.

Yes. I have this cracked app on my iPhone. As someone has suggested already, a google on dynolicious.ipa will do the trick. Also, include xsellize.com sources in your cydia installer.

Seems to be ok.

This device uses an accelerometer to calculate speed and distance covered. As the rate of acc reduces, it bcoms diff to calculate accurate figures. When you do a top speed run, your speed is not increasing as rapidly as it would in a 0-100 or 1/4 mile run.

So the best way to calculate top speed is to use a GPS guided device.

Do you have a manual or auto? The latter is a full second slower.

Sanchits,

You want to start with your revs higher in the range, and leave the clutch fairly quickly. However, try to avoid too much wheelspin as that will waste time.

When shifting, you want to shift at redline (try not to over-rev!)

Make your shifts QUICK, come on and off the clutch as fast as possible.

For more info take a look at this very old thread :

The civic tested by overdrive did 100 in about 10.2 seconds, its normally difficult to better the times by magazines ,but you could better it by
1 filling 93 octane petrol
2 find a nice long open deserted road
3 rev the car to 2500 rpm and dump the clutch
4 dont over rev ,shift just above the redline

thanx for all the suggestions. so by what i gathered is that i should start in between 3000 - 4000 rpm to avoid wheelspin and change gears just before redline, would u say at about 6500 rpm. Ofcourse keeping in mind that coming on and off the clutch should be fast.

by the way what is the best time i can get out of a stock civic with stock wheels n rims.
