Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Re: Hopefully someone will find this useful.

Hmmm, I'm sure I posted a reply to this last night!? One of those after midnight mouse clicks.

Anyway, great work there Rhett. Lots of hours & a great final product & resource for all.

Good to see you made all the appropriate cells TruBlu proof.........I hate deleting those important formulas.

Where's the function to make me a burger?

Re: Hopefully someone will find this useful.

Very cool Rhett love it.

Found an inconsistency comparing the power and quarter mile sections in my situation, may not be a formulae issue though, but it is odd.

I have a 3800lB set-up, car runs 12.9 @ 106mph.

3800lB and 106mph = 371.56 Lucius HP which sounds about right.

But to get a 3800lB car to do a 12.9 quarter takes 430HP on the Lucias scale.

I just thought they would have been close.

Yeah I agree. The logic isn't matching reality, and I dont think it ever will 'cos there are so many influencing factors. Some of the formula's comments refer to BHP, while others refered to RWHP, and you and I both know that they cannot be the same.

BHP is horsepower at the flywheel. Just a note as some may mistake for rwhp.

Re: Hopefully someone will find this useful.

I agree, it could be a bit misleading. I'll clarify in version 2 for those readers who are not familiar with BHP.

Re: Hopefully someone will find this useful.

Well that makes sense, probably a good idea to clarify it. Only reason it is misleading is the reference to Lucius in both sections - so the mind infers they are measuring the same thing.

But it is really Lucius RWHP and Lucius FWHP..

mmm

Now wasn't he the guy in Matrix who yanked Nero out of the illusion..
