Woo version comparison update?

Has anyone seen some more comparisons of the WOO2 vs WOO3?
Last couple I saw the WOO3 was getting about double the total air time and about 15% higher jump height, in some cases ones that the WOO2 completely missed when located very close to each other on the same board.

I'm curious as to whether Woosports are going to release any software updates to reduce these differences?

Leo talks about it in this video:

Basically, he claims that the algorithm is still the same but the sensors in 3.0 are more sensitive and accurate and that results in higher readings on some jumps.

Why would Woo make the 2 read as high as the 3? Then there would be no reason to upgrade.

I've been running the 2 and 3 side by side and find them to be very similar.

In fact on my first comparison session the 2 measured higher than the 3.

LOL....I get the same response from the WOO believers here at my local. But there are a few now that are starting to wake up.
