Quick question:
If I have an acceleration of the car in the longitudinal direction (for example 6 m/sē), how can I calculate the acceleration in g's?

Acceleration due to gravity is 1g = 9.81m/s2.

So you would work out how many g's there are in your value.

For example, [your value] / 9.81 = number of g's
