Why wouldn't the EVIC count? I've checked the digital speed to gps and they agree throughout various speeds. So assuming no wheel slip (awd )it should record an accurate number since the speedo is correct. I would say it's within 1/10 a second or better easily.

My best 1/4 mile time and speed were very close on the EVIC to what I had on my track slip. I was amazed at how accurate it was.

Hit 4.3 seconds after I put in the K&N Air Filter. Sport Mode, Automatic, Temp 65, Elevation 17 ft. Will try the aforementioned approach in Track Mode. I have found using the paddle shifters you can keep it in first gear a little longer, but if you are slow on the shift, the gas is going to get cut off and you have to start over again.
i tried it the first day i got it, it was in auto mode+full tank+passenger+warm weather= 5.8 seconds.
i also remmeber one of the salesmen telling me that the fan clutch are normally changed when the cars are imported from the U.S (or was it just jeep?), because of the heat here during summer, so i think the clutch is tighter than what you guys have on your jeeps. i will try it next after the first check/maintenance at thier workshop.
