Re: OZ Racing Superleggera
Just in case anyone is interested, I have a spreadsheet I did years ago for a race car I was having set up problems with.
Given certain data, it will identify the correct balance bar setting front to rear. Parameters are
1 - wheelbase
2 - CoG height
3 - static weight balance Front to rear
4 - downforce Front and rear
5 - Master cylinders sizes for front and rear circuit
6 - slave cylinder sizes for each caliper (actual pistons diameters and number per caliper required)
7 - Rotor diameter
8 - mu estimates for brake materials (in case you are using different pads front and rear)
9 - Target deceleration rates (in 'g')
I think that is it. If anyone wants a copy, let me know, but I warn you it is NOT a user friendly document. It only took me a couple of hours to knock up - but it proved VERY effective. Having spent three meetings struggling with brake setup and being given so much duff advice by people who should 'know' I used this sheet to set up the brakes for the next meeting. It was less than a quarter turn out on the balance bar, so I reckon it is pretty OK. Similar situation when we needed a wet set up for that matter.
May not be overly useful for a road car, but you should be able to 'check' the options you have/are interesting in getting.
