        Recommend having a passenger go along to log the
data and set the "Go" button.  You can add the passengers weight
to the entered Tiger weight and still get valid readings.
You also need a place with a level road.  Hills will cause
false readings.  Make two way runs several times and average the
readings.  Do not take the single highest reading and assume
that is correct.  If you do not shift smoothly, sometimes
you can get a peak due the jerk during a shift.  

        If anyone out there is real good at programming a
 Palm Pilot, I have a scheme to add a 2 axes acceleratomer chip to
one and be able to log the data and later download it to a PC.
I do not have the experience or skill to do the programming I want.
