View Full Version : Horsepower

I wiped about 15 years worth of dust off an old toy. It is a G-meter that will measure horsepower.
They have gotten expensive lately, and the newer models look more like a GPS.
I am proud to announce that my TR3 delivers a total of 34 Hp to the wheels.
I'll be trying it again after a distributor rebuild, and some new carb needles.

Sounds low. Don't race any Bugeyes. :smirk:

The horsepower rating from accelerometers are not very accurate. I own both a GTech and the Escort G-Timer, and neither proved accurate.

I think that's about what the G-Timer said about my TR3,but during the same run I clocked 0-60 in 10 seconds flat! (The next run I axle-hopped so badly that my throttle linkage popped off!)
