Leaning three wheeler

Postby cARlow » Thu May 28, 2015 2:59 pm

Dear Community,

does the engine allow to model a free leaning vehicle with three wheels? E. g. Toyota i road?
Well these are three questions at a time:
- vehicle with three wheels (2 front, 1 rear)
- vehicle that leans into the corner like a bike
- steering with negative values for the first couple of steering wheel degrees (countersteer like on a motorbike)

I´d like to know before I buy. Thank you guys.

Hello cARlow,

1. The engine doesn't allow to model a three-wheel car. The only solution is to model a four-wheel car and stick together rear or front wheels.
2. Do you want to have a movable center of mass? No, it doesn't support it.
If you mean the work of suspension - yes, it leans on corners.
3. No, it doesn't support steering with negative values for the first couple of steering wheel degrees. Look at the VehiclePhysics.exe in the demo.
