Hello, how to do the track width using the set up stand and tweak station?
Track width with the wheels is one thing but with the setup stands I've got a 200mm reading.
How can I do the correct track width?

Can you post pictures of your car on tweak station? I think 200mm is very low for RX8.

As you asked! I want to use 263mm but how to use the Tweak + Set up Stand to get the 263mm?

I think the problem is the track-width measurements of the tweak station assume a wheel offset of 0mm. But in reality the tire offset is not 0mm. You should add tire offset to your calculations.

I developed a system to get the desired number but I really think about a faster way using the tweak station would be better.

Due the toe-in it is wrong to measure the track width on the center of the tire, for sure if you want to be on the limit. Most people just use a longer (250mm) caliper or a simple ruler and measure width on the most rear part of the tire.
