Since the Hyperpac has a dragstrip function that gives all the information you'd get at a dragstrip, we decided to test it against the timers. We found the Hyperpac to be extremely accurate, within a percentage point or two of the track timers. Certainly accurate enough to provide good information for testing parts.
