iPhone and "M Power" app with questionable accuracy lead to amazing feats of vehicular ability.

Yes it does, but for launches lasting more than 4 hours, please consult your physician; oops, I mean service advisor.

It was pretty clear to me thats what you did, brake torqued the car and launched. Use the in motion software Pocket Dyno app, free. Then get back to us. This is a pretty accurate app.

Downloaded the app and tried it in my car. First of all this is a compleey useless tool for measuring 0-60 times as it will start measuring when you actually hit the start button on your phone not when you start moving. Looking at your graph and your max G it's pretty obvious you were were well on your way when you hit the start button.

Here is my graph and you can see how gradual and concurrent the velocity is to the time and Gs. I had my phone secured in the screen up position that's probably why it has the lateral G mixed up.

The other four runs I did with the Pocket Dyno app. A very accurate tool that has to be calibrated first. It starts measuring after you release the brake and get on the gas. I had trouble lounching it a couple of times with the brake torque technique because after the ini ial rpm climb the rpms drop and the car bogs down. A saftey feature I assume when you have your foot on the brake. The one run I did at 4.76 seconds 0-60 was launching at what I estimate around 2,000 RPM, right before it cut the power.

Get the Pocket Dyno app, then post your results. I would really like to see your numbers.
