well guys that run foams are changing their 'rollout' all the time because their tyres are wearing.

not so bad for the rubber guys because their tyres stay the same (diameter that is)
I still laugh when i hear rubber guys saying they only need to work out FDR, how often have people actually compared different types of rubbers, even same tire with differnt inserts, there can be a few mm difference, rollout is the true measure of gearing.

the exact roll out won't get you anywhere as we all know rubber tyres expand when you reach certain speed once you get the right FDR all there's to it is great driving skills don't forget the best dyno is the track itself better than any calculator or "bench testing equipment" remember gear for you best laptimes!!!
