Had no idea this type of program was around. Big props Bob for such a great program. I will be grabbing this soon.

The time saved will pay for itself.

Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there that make this hobby what it is!!

Just uploaded some new models.

Yokomo BD7, Thanks Ed

Some Nitro and Large scale gas engine models. Still working on sourcing some more X-Dyno data so hopefully more to come.

daleblurr has been doing some interesting testing with his home built dyno and provided some test results to build motor models. Check out the effects of boost in the 13.5 Team Powers File. Some other new models there as well.

What do you think about Serpent's DLS system?

Very interesting system. Looks like a great way to control camber gain and help even out tire wear when running foam tires. It will also have an effect on the roll centre position although that should be minor.

I'm sure Serpent have done their homework so it will have a performance benefit.

XRay T4 model is now available for download from the website. Thanks to Skiddins for contributing it. I have gone through the model a made a few tweaks based on the manual and setup sheets. All the numbers make sense when compared to the T3 model.

I didn't have the car in my hands so the model uses the default CG height of 31mm. To do a valid comparison you would need to have multiple cars with exactly the same components installed, setup the same way and a very accurate test method. You are looking to measure differences of tenths of a mm so test accuracy is critical.

You could try asking XRAY how much the CG lowered from the T3 to the T4. They definitely have the number from their CAD models.

New update released. One minor bug fix and something I've had lots of request for, a trial period. Now you have 14 days to play.
