What Are You Running This Year

Recommended Posts

Good question Ben as I struggled to determine the height of the Touareg in the proxy. the digital calipers give different readings depending on how tight the object is that you are measuring. I ended up stacking a bunch of 20c coins with a 1mm piece of plastic over the top that touched the roof of the car, then measured the coins including 1mm plastic strip - caliper arms tight gave about 49.8mm and loose over 50mm.

 

I'm sure there is a better way or instrument that could automatically do it however I'm yet to find one. Same for clearance height, I've seen some tool that has arms at different heights but range of heights is fairly limited.

^^ Thats what I was thinking of. Making some sort of even tower type thing. Money would work as you can get different thicknesses to get the right height. Would be close enough for me.
