Default Rollout Calculator

I have made a FREE Rollout Calculator for the PalmOS and will soon have versions for Windows PocketPC and cellphones.

You can see it HERE....

Enjoy!

Thanks,
Shannon

that is cool. I got it to load on my old palm and it works out great at the track. No more formula!

Thanks!

Pretty cool proggy! Thanks!! Question: Is the tire size is mm or inches? Suggestions: Need a clear button and I'm not sure about this one, but if you're trying to do a 1/12 scale rollout, do you just leave the drive train blank?

It's in inches.

Thanks for the 'Clear Button' suggestion. That will definately make it into the next version.

For Pan Cars (1/10th or 1/12th) just choose the 1st selection in the drop down box.

Thanks for using the program!

Please keep the suggestions coming!

Hey Guys,

been reading alot about roll-out lately as i am trying to tune me car in for this upcoming season

i run a TC3 with an IRS chasis

here is a pic of the track on race on

http://www.jacksonrcracing.com/onroadpics.htm

what is the tire size, i run take-off 27's right out of the package

i think the fast guys last year were running 100t spur and somewhere between 34-36t pinion 64 pitch

any help would be great!!!

thanks,
Chris08527

Chris08527 - The formula is,

(Tire diameter x 3.14) / (Spur/pinion x internal gear/pulley ratio of the chassis)

I believe rubber tires have a diameter of 63mm. Sorry I don't know inches.

i can use this program on any Palm pilot as long as it runs Palm OS?

Just wondering because I see some PalmIII's for cheap on ebay...

to be honest with you .. I am not sure if it matters how you input the data.

I am assuming the drivetrain ratios are the same whether you use inches or millitmeters.

I am also assuming that PI is the same whether you use inches or millimeters.

I will look into this further though.
