    There is an interesting thread in the Formula Renault 3.5L iracing sub forum.

    http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3627840.page

    It talks about how cars with mono shock suspension don't use the usual channels, instead of the usual RFshockDefl, RFshockVel, LFshockDefl and LFshockVel iRacing sends telemetry values for the front in combined CFshockDefl and CFshockVel keys.

    I noticed in the F3 initially that my D-Box system was silent on the front two actuators on a section of track at Suzuka, the FR3.5 is the same as is the FR2.0 I believe. I've alerted D-Box support to this.

    I'm still trying to work out whether my harness tensioner driven by SimTools is so thought I would ask here whether the CFShockDefl and CFshockVel channels are used if there is no data on the RF/LF channels.

    Thanks for the plugin, it works really well.

    Regards
    Fred
