How is camber and caster measured?

1 Answer:
  • Aaron Chan
    To Measure Camber:
    1. Turn the wheels so they point straight ahead.
    2. Attach the caster/camber gauge to the spindle or hub.
    3. Rotate the gauge so the bubble in the small vial closest to you is centered.
    4. Camber is shown on the two outer vials. The left vial reads positive (+). The right vial reads negative (-).

  • How does tire traction work?

    Traction is the resistance between the tire and the ground in reaction to torque being exerted by the wheel axle under engine power. Traction is a fact. It is inevitable whenever the adhesive friction, a tire in this case, moves across the body of a surface. Traction naturally happens, while braking is a must.29 ene 2021
  • What is slip angle racing?

    In basic terms, slip angle is the difference between the direction a vehicle is travelling (known as heading or course over ground) and the direction that the body of the vehicle is pointing (true heading).
  • What is slip angle What are the causes of slip angle?

    Causes. A non-zero slip angle arises because of deformation in the tire carcass and tread. As the tire rotates, the friction between the contact patch and the road results in individual tread 'elements' (finite sections of tread) remaining stationary with respect to the road.
