If you're looking for an easy, accurate way to measure your vehicle's performance without having to disassemble your dash to connect costly gauges, Escort's GT-2 G-Timer is your ticket to ride. This performance computer measures your vehicle's acceleration, horsepower, cornering, and braking forces and then displays the information on an easy-to-read bright blue display — all without any external connections, other than a DC power adapter!
The GT-2 has two basic operation modes: "Timed Run" mode and "G-Meter" mode.
"Timed Run" mode measures your vehicle's acceleration and braking forces during a brief time run, and calculates acceleration times (including 0-60 mph, quarter mile times and speeds, and 60-0 mph braking time and distance). Once you enter in your vehicle's weight, the unit will also calculate horsepower. "G-Meter" mode continuously measures and displays the acceleration, braking, and cornering forces your vehicle is producing. Operation is intuitive — for a timed run, press the "Start" button, and then accelerate whenever you are ready. Results are shown automatically at the end of the run. Just press the "G-Meter" button to view real-time G-forces. You can save up to 10 different runs in the internal memory, or use an optional cable (available directly from Escort) to download your specs onto your laptop computer or palm pilot.
Installing the GT-2 is easy. Mount the display on your windshield with the included suction cup mount, plug the DC power adapter into your cigarette lighter (or DC power outlet) and enter your vehicle's weight. Miniature internal solid-state sensors sense the acceleration forces, so there's no need for a connection to the vehicle's speedometer.
Important Note: The GT-2 performance computer is a tool used to measure vehicle performance. When testing your vehicle, it's important to drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws. And remember that taller vehicles (SUVs, vans, or trucks) are more prone to rollover than conventional vehicles.
