WHEEL LOADS WITH WEIGHT ADDITION OR DELETION

This spreadsheet has been added in response to frequent forum posts asking for the effect on wheel loads when components are moved within the car, lightened, or deleted. (When changing the location of a component, first remove it...using a negative sign before the componenet weight...and insert the new wheel loads and center of gravity height in the left column. Then replace it in the new location.)

The requested distance forward and offset are for the component. Distance forward is from the rear axle centerline and offset is from the car's centerline in plan view. Use a negative sign before the component weight if it is being removed.

The spreadsheet also provides the new center of gravity height.


Left Front =

Right Front =

Left Rear =

Right Rear =

Center of Gravity Height =

Wheelbase =

Front Track =

Rear Track =

Added Weight (negative if removed) =

Distance Forward From Rear Axle =

Offset From Car's Centerline
(positive to right) =

Vertical From Road Surface =
