Re: paper: Drive Train Field Calculations
When I opened the spreadsheet, Excel immediately screamed at me about "linked spreadsheets" and forced me to break the links (and open it as a read-only document, though that may be entirely unrelated). I use a OSX10.5, Excel '04. Another mac-based friend of mine tried with Excel '08 and also had it break a little on them. Would you please post the spreadsheets that are linked to this one? Having them all at once might make Excel complain less, is my theory.
Not that I'm complaining--even in read-only, that's an immense amount of data up there, and all of it useful. Certainly it's helped give me an idea of a baseline for what I should be hoping for in testing 192's current six-wheel-drive. Great job, and thank you.
(Right now 192 is testing our 12:1 gearbox from last year to see if we want to try a different gear ratio, and if it can take the strain from IFI traction wheels on carpet after getting off easy last year. I'm using the numbers on your spreadsheet as a baseline to aim for.)
