Re: diffs and opinion II
On this past Sunday morning I watched the Panoz team align one of the Panoz
ALMS Prototype class sports cars (as one of the cars that out-qualified the
Le Mans winning BMW V12 LMRs...but only came second in the race).
They did have the car on a service plate and of course they also
corner-balance the car. What I found interesting was the use of monofiliment
fishing line with machined blocks standing off the line from the wheels. Next
a small ruler was used to measure distances from the wheel to this string on
the side of the wheels oposite the blocks. Very simple really. Certainly was
an "at the track" alignment check too.
