Thanks for the offer Hrishi because I will need your lines if I have to take my "small white boat" on track especially considering mine is in stock condition except for the alloys and K&N

Its basically a GPS based datalogging device.Most of the auto magazines use it to get very very accurate acceleration/top speed figures while roadtesting the cars.

Thanks Binoy, I get very confused sometimes with all the jargon thrown around.

With most phones having GPS devises these days, you dont need a Vbox to measure lap times, its an overkill. We are not trying to find an extra second by tinkering with the setup like the formula races where every millisecond counts.

By the look of whats happening on this thread I think instead of the VBox somebody had brought the "Pandora's Box" with them which got opened while the cars were being thrown around on the race track. The only thing missing here is the class teacher so that we can go and complain this guy took my pencil box and that guy pinched me..

I dont think that'll help things in any way. Everything said and done partisian politics are not good for any thing - country or sports.
What we need to do now is try and get the track opened up. It'll be great if all differences, name calling and finger pointing were to be put aside.
