First of all a big thanks for making this available. Very useful and very much appreciated.

I'm working on a car that's very sensitive to bump steer, so was wondering about the values shown in the calculator. I assume these are values obtained from the changing arcs the different arms travel through. So it's the mm change at the steering arm. Correct?

Is it possible to display bump steer values with an accuracy of 1/10 of a mm? Just asking, as for this car 1 mm change already is quite a lot and bump steer is actually not minimized, but used for both the front and the rear to make the car more responsive.

Yes, you're correct. You'll need to multiply the bump steer value by the distance forward or backward between the kingpin and the upright/steering arm connection to get the true value.

I'll have a look at changing the resolution of the bump steer value as you have requested.
