Post subject:  Track Width using Hudy Tweak Station

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.
