    Hi, I am referring to this guide to set up and test the axis right now

    http://www.xsimulator.net/co-ordinate-system/

    I want to know the convention for Heave & Extra1 (rear traction loss) in the virtual axis testing which are not mentioned the guide, my questions are

    1. For upward acceleration, Heave slider moves to right or left?

    2. For traction loss - rear sliding to left, Extra 1 slider moves to right or left?

    Thanks!

    This is not defined. If it does not feel "natural" you can always invert the Heave in the axis assignment tab of SimEngine.

    2. For traction loss - rear sliding to left, Extra 1 slider moves to right or left?

    Sliding of the car to the left results in sliding of the virtual axis slider to the left.
