    New version of Calculator almost ready....Edit: READY NOW

    Update:

    I got almost all of it working. About the only thing I would like to do on this version is to add in a calculation of the "anti-squat" CG (vehicle - rear axle CG) insted of just the vehicle CG. I'm going to have to do some hand calc's to make sure I remember how to do that /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Anyways check to make sure the macro's work in the new "TRAVEL" section and make sure I didn't screw anything up that I didn't notice. I did it in ExcelXP but saved it as a 5.0/97 file. Someone see if it works on the older stuff.

    I also made it so you can add your own materials to the list...they just have to be in alphabetical order or it won't work.

    Once I get that all finished up I think it will have enough changes to be called v3.0!!!

    Edit:
    I also changed the name to be more "proper".

    Ok I finished it up and called it 3.0

    It will now tell you the sprung mass CG and the "anti-squat CG" (vehicle CG - rear axle CG) if you give it vehicle CG, front/rear sprung mass, and tire radius. It took less time then I though...gota love the find/replace comand.

    I also made a small text message to go along with it.

    Most of the dicussion for this is here and here

    If you do have any questions ask them in this thread or on pirate because I am not a member of this site right now.

    Wow! The new version is really trick Dan. I am going to start playing with it and probably put it to use in the spring.
