    v2 v3  
    1919__Style__: text style for the telemetry window. 
     21## Telemetry Data: 
     23In the Live Demo the telemetry data is shown with the B key. 
     25__WheelFL, FR, RL, RR:__ data for front - rear, left - right wheels 
     27> __RPM:__ wheel spin in revs per minute.   
     28__S:__ spring extension. 0 is fully compressed, 1 is fully extended.   
     29__F:__ force supported by the spring in Newtons.   
     30__FS:__ tyre's forward slip (m/s)   
     31__SS:__ tyre's sideways slip (m/s)   
     32__FSR:__ tyre's forward skid ratio (<1 ok, 1..2 loosing grip, >2 skidding)   
     33__SSR:__ type's sideways skid ratio 
     35__Friction F, S:__ forward/sideways slip peak and asymptote.   
     36__Grip F, R:__ forward/sideways grip ratio   
     37__Stab F, R:__ force ratio transfered by the front - rear stabilizer bars   
     38__Steer L, R:__ steering angle for each wheel   
     40__Speed:__ forward speed in m/s, km/h and mph 
     42> __Abs:__ absolute velocity of the rigidbody (m/s)   
     43__Lat:__ sideways velocity of the rigidbody (m/s)   
     44__Acc:__ acceleration of the rigidbody (m/s2) 
     46__Pitch:__ forwards angle (typically changes when accelerating and braking)   
     47__Roll:__ sideways angle (typically changes when steering)   
     49> __AngV:__ pitch/roll change rate with their higher reached values 
     51__Gear:__ current gear, D (drive), N (neutral) or R (reverse).   
     52__Accel, Brake, Handbrake, Steer:__ user's input to pedals and steering wheel.   
     53__MotorMax, BrakeMax:__ maximum motor and braking torque applied to the wheels. 
     55__StabMode:__ stabilizer bars stiffness: auto, offroad, comfort, sport, none (5)   
     56__ABS:__ Antilock Brake System (1)   
     57__TC:__ Traction Control (2)   
     58__ESP:__ auto-steering angle limiter (3)   
     59__4x4 / front / rear:__ current traction axle (4)   
     60__Slow-Motion:__ slow time scale is enabled (T) 
     62## Tyre telemetry: 
     64In the Live Demo the tire telemetry is shown with the B key (show telemetry data), then shift-B. 
     66__Forwards and sideways friction curves per each wheel__, with their extremum and asymptote values. The horizontal scale is the tire slip in m/s. Forward and sideways slip values are shown in realtime: 
     68__Green:__ slip is ok, the extremum value has not been reached.   
     69__Yellow:__ slip is between extremum and asymptote. Tire force is decreasing.   
     70__Red:__ slip has surpassed the asymptote value. Tyre force is the minimum (skidding).   
     72__Suspension and stabilizer bars__ are exposed in the right-most graphs: 
     74__Wheels:__ the left bar shows the suspension travel, the right one the suspension force. Yellow means the suspension force has exceeded the spring value, and red means the suspension has reached its travel limit and it's fully compressed so hard contact points are created.   
     75__Stabilizer bars:__ the horizontal scale is the relative roll for that axle (0 = no roll, 1 = maximum roll before the inner wheel lifts from the ground) and the curve means the amount of force the stabilizer bar is exerting. Yellow means the force has exceeded the 50%, red means the force has exceeded the 75%.
