    Not enough input like gearing to make this very accurate. Based on my results it says I'm at 416 with my car at dry weight around 3700, and 450 with me in it at around 4000.
    and there's no way I'm above 410 at the wheels

    What are you looking at?

    trap speed or elapsed time?

    The mathmatics of it are correct i believe. Same way a dyno does it only dyno's get exact readings for close to exact hp #'s.

    A Dyno still needs final drive ratio input for it's calculations

    Yes....this i know......

    if this was 100% accurate there would be no purpose for dyno's now would there.........

    N E ways....though it would give people a nice estimate of HP, but i guess since its not 99.99999999% accurate.....welll...........&*#K it then.
