    You would be better off and get the best results by creating and refining your own motion profiles tuned to your actuators and personal preferences: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/

    I’ve always wanted to build a TL module for my 80/20 rig but have no idea how to do this... could you also help me a bit with more information about your blueprint from before? Is it easy to make with aluminum profile? How do you connect the fold back PT-Actuator and so? Thanks for your help!
