Ive been experimenting with the Dark Physics vehicle commands, and after a TONNE of trial and error I've managed to get my vehicle working fairly realistically. As to why it works is still a mystery to me as the values Im plugging in are not the same as the real sizes of my mesh objects. But looking at the vehicle arena demo this seems to be the case there as well. Anyways, thats a seperate issue.

Im just curious why the vehicles must be rotated 90 degrees on the Y axis for them to work properly. They do it in the vehicle arena demo as well. Any clarification?

this is done as the wheels center is on the x axis and the model buggy was not.

drove me nuts, made an app some time back that on here to allow you to load your model and gets some numbers to start with so that it could be fined tuned later.

link if you want to have a look.
