Voices on WheelCam

The method of using digital cameras in connection with PC software for measuring wheel angles is new to this application, but the basic technology has been developed over many years in TruckCam AB, for use on heavy duty and light commercial vehicles. More than 1200 alignment systems based on this same digital camera technology is today used in heavy duty and light commercial vehicles’ factories and workshops all over the world, which ensures the high quality of the product. Read more on the WheelCam Digital Racing Alignment System here, and check out the movie clip here.

Some of our customers share their thoughts on the system:

Rickard Rydell and Chevrolet Motorsport Sweden, Scandinavian Touring Car Champion 2011

Touring Car Champion Rickard Rydell and the Chevrolet Motorsport Sweden team uses WheelCam.

Engineer Jonas Jarlmark on WheelCam:
"WheelCam makes a large contribution in reducing setup time for our Cruzes. With the mechanic making the adjustment and reading the display simultaneously, many tiring setup iterations are avoided and setup is now a fast and efficient process.

The accuracy and repeatability with the WheelCam system is exceptional, as an engineer, you soon start to ask for even more decimal places.

One big upside is that the system is fitted to the car without any time-consuming installation measurements. Click the cameras to the setup wheels, hang the front and rear bar on the car and within eight pushes of a button, the full measurement is done and ready to show the adjustments live."


Westend Racing team

The Finnish Westend Racing team with wide international experience of racing GT Porsches uses WheelCam for setup of their cars.

The team comments on WheelCam:
"System is so accurate that we need to understand what is the real accuracy needed in setting the car!"

"We have experienced many new things related to wheel alignments - no other system could provide such information!"

Team owner Jorma Vanhanen concludes:
"The team has no excuses anymore - there is always time to check wheel alignments and we can rely on measurements!"

Xlander Racing and Robin Rudholm, Swedish Porsche Carrera Cup Champion 2011

The winner of this years' Swedish Porsche Carrera Cup, Robin Rudholm, uses our digital set up system on his GT3.

Engineer Magnus Karlsson:
"The accurracy exceeds everything previously seen, we adjust by 1/10 of a millimetre with 100% repeatability, when taking of and remounting the equipment. 

 The WheelCam system is quickly and easily mounted to the car and ready for alignment, which is especially useful while testing. During test days, every minute saved while working in the pit is important, as it means another minute spent testing on the track.

The fact that you use the same equipment to align the set up tables as you do aligning the wheels of the car also adds to the system, as do the systems' compactness when stored."
