Hey guys,

I decided to use dynolicious on my iPhone for the first time this weekend. Anyway, the launch was VERY light, I wasn't really prepared and didn't want to beat the crap out of the car at launch just yet anyway. I forgot to the take the ESC off and shifting to third the car bogged as I hit the rev limiter. With all those excuses said, the results were pretty good for a first ever try of this software. So here is a look at the results and there will be more to come!

I wasn't 100% sure of the weight of the car either. I set it to 2950lbs with me in the car only and a quarter tank of gas.

Those are some really decent numbers!

Curb Weights for Koups:
2716 lbs for EX Manual
2749 lbs for EX Auto
2859 lbs for SX Manual
2875 lbs for SX Auto

The Sedans are approx. 9 lbs lighter in each trim package. LX identical to EX.

Just add the weight of a tank of gas or fraction of it doing conversion on 13.7 gallons full
13.7 gallons full ~= 92 lbs depends on temps and altitude but a good average.
