why are the number scales different on side by side comparisons?

I have been using linear damper sensors in a PI data acquisition system for a while.
The main purspose of this was to gather some data our consultant needed to perform a 4 post rig test (car with low aero downforce).
The rig test went very good, the laptimes decreased and the topics discussed here helped a lot.
I have used the PI Toolbox to plot histograms:
And tried to figure out downforce levels:
Taking into account the different motion ratio front and rear, I wonder how much can I trust these polynomials.
I have also processed the data in matlab, using FFT and some results were these:
You can see a peak at x:2,737 wich gets pretty close to the natural frequency of the car that I calculated using corner weight + spring rate at the wheel (2.75Hz)
Now I would like to know what are the other possible uses I can give to them.

speedsense wrote:With Aero downforce, the same technique can be applied, with perticular speeds chosen for gates. It is best to analyze, with the car straight (no lateral, or braking long g) and keep the range within a few KM's for each target speed.
Without a pitot tube however, you could be spitting into the wind... (pun intended)
