Does that work reliably? @MadCow2357 mentioned that other factors could cause the result from rolling the vehicle to be inaccurate.MadCow2357 wrote:Just to name a few: skidding (big), wheel slippage, oversteer, understeer, drifting
*shrug* It works pretty well for our buggy, it depends on how your buggy works
Like LMN said, it depends. If you are just testing your buggy out, and getting a general idea of how many rotations it needs to travel between 9 and 12 meters, this is fine. Totally works. However, I wouldn't use the data from this to set your brakes for competition - it doesn't account for the other factors I mentioned, and it is better to test for the individual distances separately. Makes sense?
