There is no problem with the Maths. Depends on which "bright spark" knows what a percentage is as a decimal.

As i said using your example ((46%(1422)*9.8)/(73.7*3.5^2)) + 1 gives me 1.4993215739484396

But when i remove the % and use 0.46 instead ((0.46(1422)*9.8)/(73.7*3.5^2)) + 1 i get the correct result

The setting are too soft for my liking after testing it on a couple of cars so its no big loss i will stick to setting my own dampers but i was interested in getting the math working to see what results it gave.

You do know that 46% can be expressed as a decimal which is 0.46?

Thus both are correct - Your just typing in something wrong!

THE MATHS ISN'T WRONG!

And the settings vary for each car. If your testing these settings on R Class and above, they don't work as good. So I'm going to tweak the formula and include downforce.

RR

I didnt type the formula in I copied and pasted the example from your post straight into the calculator to make sure I got the same answer so I didnt type anything wrong. Yes I know that the setting vary for each car once I got the formula to work I changed the values to match whatever car I was tuning for and as I said they are too soft for my liking so no big deal I will carry on tuning the dampers myself.

That's your problem there, "I copied and pasted the example from your post straight into the calculator to make sure I got the same answer." This wont give you the right answer! You have to input the values yourself, not copy and paste it, LOL!

I copied and pasted your example to make sure the answer given was the same as the answer in your example if it was then I know that I needed to replace the figures with the figures from the car I wanted to tune.

Try this copy and paste your first example into the calculator

http://www.picalc.com/ then look at the answer given its not the same as your example answer so the formula didnt work so

i changed to % to 0.46

Your formula on the first page the answer should be 8.1 per your example but isnt (ive said this all along): ((46%(1422)*9.8)/(73.7*3.5^2)) + 1 this gives 1.4993215739484396 as the answer which isnt the same as your answer in your example so the formula is wong

Now paste this into the calculator ((0.46(1422)*9.8)/(73.7*3.5^2)) + 1 and you will get the correct answer of 8.1 as per your example. So copy and pasing

**does** work the formula just needed changing to make it work.

Why your example doesnt work but removing the % and changing the 46% to 0.46 makes it work I dont know but anyway as ive said the setting are too soft for my liking I perfer a stiffer setup both springs and dampers.
