The sheet features:

  • database of a number of host vehicles;
  • custom host vehicle can be defined by user;
  • you can define your loads at specific positions on the vehicle;
  • you'll get calculated a center of gravity position and resultant load on front and rear axle;
  • warnings appears if the max allowed load is exceeded for the selected host vehicle.
