Just wondering if any of you have heard of or tried this Draggy it does 1/4 mile and more and they claim accurate to within 1/100 of a second https://dragymotorsports.com/

Its funny you bring this up. I was just looking at this last night and downloaded it to try later on. I would assume it is fairly accurate because it uses GPS. This will also depend of how accurate your phone (or whatever device you are using) is. If anything it will probably give us some decent baselines for performance.

Honestly I didn't pay much attention to what all was required. That makes sense because when I opened the app is doesn't connect to the draggy gps. I just took it as I needed to set something up. After a quick search it does indeed look like you need the GPS device, That's what I get for not reading between the lines.

i think as long as the refresh rate is fast enough it would be accurate

I will have to give it a try. Again it can at least be a good baseline for sure.

Which would explain why it is so expensive. I am ok getting within the ballpark. If I wanted to no kidding times just hit the track.

I have one; it's pretty slick.

I haven't been to the track with it just yet, but searching around online shows them being within a tenth or better in most cases.

Got it as a present. 149 seems to be the going rate from what I can find.
