Pilots & Tracked vehicles

Postby gloomyandy » Mon Nov 12, 2007 12:20 pm

Hi Folks,
Quick question... If you want to use one of the Pilots, or Navigators with a tracked vehicle what values should you use for the wheel size and track width (that is what would normally be the distance between the wheels)....

Wheel size is on the side of the wheel - 56 mm (or 5.6 cm). Track width is the distance from the center of the left wheel to the center of the right wheel.

Be sure to use consistent measurement units. Only use CM or only use Inches. This determines what units the Navigator classes will output. i.e. if you use cm's then the output units are also in cm.
