Test

This screen shows a live speed readout and allows the user to activate a test session and capture results.

Acceleration test

By default, the user must hit ‘Start’ to begin a test. When the test is finished, the results will automatically be brought into view. If 'Show Recent Results' has been selected within the Config menu, the last three results will be displayed below the current results. By pressing on these, the results can be viewed in more detail.
 

After viewing, the user must hit ‘Reset’ and then ‘Start’ before starting the next test.

Acceleration tests end when VBOX Sport detects deceleration.

Note:

If multiple acceleration test ranges have been customised, the test will end when deceleration is detected and will not restart until the lowest speed over all the ranges has been met. Any acceleration after the end of the test that fails to start from the minimum speed condition will not be populated within the results.

For example, if the acceleration test was customized into ranges as below, the test would finish once deceleration has been detected and could not be manually started/ would not auto restart (if Auto Reset is enabled) until the vehicle is at the lowest condition (i.e. 0 mph). If the vehicle was to accelerate through 30 – 70 mph or 80 – 120 mph once the test has ended, these results will not populate.

  • 0 – 100 mph
  • 30 – 70 mph
  • 80 – 120 mph


If the acceleration test was customized into ranges as below, the test would finish once deceleration has been detected and could not be manually started/ would not auto restart until the vehicle is below 30 mph. If the vehicle was to accelerate through 80 – 120 once the test has ended, these results will not populate.

  • 30 – 70 mph
  • 80 – 120 mph


If 'Performance Delta' has been enabled within the Config menu, during the test, a green or red background will show live whether the current test run is quicker or slower the last.
 


 

Note: With ‘auto reset’ turned on within the configuration section, tests will automatically restart after the first start condition of the defined test(s) is met.

Brake test

By default, the user must hit ‘Start’ to begin a test. When the test is finished, the results will automatically be brought into view. If 'Show Recent Results' has been selected within the Config menu, the last three results will be displayed below the current results. By pressing on these, the results can be viewed in more detail.
 

After viewing, the user must hit ‘Reset’ and then ‘Start’ before starting the next test.
Brake tests end when the VBOX Sport detects a speed value of zero.

Note: With ‘auto reset’ turned on within the configuration section, tests will automatically restart after the first start condition of the defined test(s) is met.

Zero to zero test

By default, the user must hit ‘Start’ to begin a test. When the test is finished, the results will automatically be brought into view. If 'Show Recent Results' has been selected within the Config menu, the last three results will be displayed below the current results. By pressing on these, the results can be viewed in more detail.
