    When i am in the car in a right turn my Sway will keep the left flap up to simulate the G. When i loose traction i want it to lower the left flap but not raise the right. Is this possible or would i need to write a new plugin?

    Setup TL so it counters sway just like roll does. But I suppose you still need a way to keep the right flap from coming up.

    Edit: Now I see where you have already done that. This site has so many damned ads these days I just look straight past them. Since the posts text was before the ads and the settings pic was after I looked right past it also :mad:. When viewing on my phone the site also often goes unresponsive now too which never happened before the server upgrade a while ago and all the additional ads :mad::mad:.

    No worries, You and the others on here are amazing at support either way!

    Its not a big deal so a low priority anyways . Im very much enjoying the sensation of feeling my grip levels to some extent so i can make some sacrifices

    That is a challenge. I have not tried it but you could;
    Create two DOF channels (i.e. TL_Left_Flap, TL_Right_Flap), one for each flap (using Extra1 & Extra2) and set your MAX/MIN cfg to Extra1 = (1,0) and Extra2 = (0,-1) and feed each your TL value (1 to -1)?

    Thanks :)

    I just wrote my own axis plug in and sorted it from there. You just stop any negative values with some simple code. You could also (if I remember correctly, been a while since I used that. V2. 3)do it from the dofs by using A and B channels with left and right motors and then putting 0 in either the top or bottom box tuning center to but it causes other issues.

    If anyone reads this and needs help or the plug in for gseat I. Happy to provide it.

    I have always found it easier to just do it in the Ard sketch that is controlling the motor driver. Can never go wrong.
