Which way to set SimTool axis movements

Which way an axis moves is determined by the Dir box being checked orange or not. Both boxes will be either checked or unchecked for surge and pitch, while only one will be checked for sway and the opposite one will be checked for roll.


Nomenclature of movements in SimTools by @value1:

Pitch is the tilt of the car forwards or backwards in [°]
Roll is how much the car is dipped to the left or right in [°]
Yaw is the heading of the car (north, east, south, west) in [°]
