We use Digi-Pas DWL 80 Pro for measuring our track on Formula racing car. For this we place the instrument directly on the hub of the wheel. For a better measurement result, we do six measurements per wheel and average this value; the level is placed in a vertical position to the road. After the first measurement, we change the angle perpendicular to the road by about 5 degrees each direction. Then we turn the inclinometer by 180° and repeat the procedure just described. The measurement results differ by only 0.15 °. Unfortunately, the magnet does not help us because of the aluminum hub. Compared to conventional methods of measurement with analog level we can quickly and accurately measure the fall. In addition, this device saves a lot of weight and space. We also use the inclinometer for aligning our wheel load scales to each other to bring all four of them to the same height. We are very satisfied with this device. Possibly an illuminated display would be helpful.
