    Thanks to the knowledge and kindness of AC members, Felipe Vaiano has putted together this little tool which comes very handy when crunching those numbers for your next virtual super-mega-awesome-car :). Of course, Felipe was kind enough to compile and share, but input from many talented people went into this. In his own words:

    Description:
    This worksheet was created to be a simple and easy to use excel worksheet, with complete calculations, to help car modders with their routine modding workflow. It started as a simplified universal suspension calculator, joining together the work of experienced AC car modders: @pankykapus, @Andrea Lojelo, @Avoletta and @Stereo and evolved to include Turbo and Tires/Wheels calculations.

    This is a work from the community, to the community. You´re free to use it any way you want, but if you intend to either modify it or add content to it, please send it to him, so that it can be included; you´ll be given credit for your work.

    The intention is to have a single universal and updated modding worksheet.

    This looks pretty nice.

    But gah on AC's crappy drivetrain loss implementation.

    I use this pretty heavily for turbo implementation and suspension bits (dampers mostly). Pretty handy.

    Yeah I think I'll use this for suspension.

    Trying to fudge AWD electric into it though, haha... hmmm.

    Still, your electric Formula car looked pretty sweet so I'm sure AC will be good enough to make the EP9 drive nice.


    Also it's nice that the XLS works in Libre Office. Once upon a time stuff like this sheet wouldn't work unless you had MS Excel!
    So Kudos to the authors for keeping it compatible (assuming it was on purpose :D )

    Hi, I have been using the AC Worksheet. I am getting really large numbers for the ARB calculations. I have used the formulas from another website, and they match (allowing for the sheets formula doing a *2 on it). But still the rates are really high. Looking at the ks_maseratie_quattroporte data (similar weight cars) it has AEB of 60000 front, and 3400 rear. My calcs are 152000 and 60200 using the sheet. Another example is the Nissan 370z from KS has 26500 and 10500.

    So, Should I be halving the number? Even then it is very high.
