it was calculated using a formula from measurements taken form my Swift. I also compared my figures a couple of websites I found with coeffeciant drag figures on it and thyey came out roughly the same figures so I would say there fairly accurate. I use the firgures for all my calculations.

No I don't have any g-force figures sorry

Thanx, J
