why this fuzzy math? 1/16 referenced by diameter of wheel..

 

why not just measure in degrees? degrees is absolute, is universal, does not depend on rims.

Because we can measure these with toe plates at the track. Degrees would involve trigonometry. Blech.

 

I've see it recorded in MM, if you're metric - minded

 

Next question:

 

Why is wheel with in MM, but rim diameter in inches (and don't tell me it's because TRX's were crappy tires)?
