    Yup it does. Also has a screen capture of the replay in 3rd person above it for comparison. Thanks for being willing to take a closer look. Appreciate it. Its pretty close to perfect minus that. I think I fixed the rear motor tilt issue, motor arm was a little bit tilted up at the default center position, so the motor was wasting downward travel by having to reach center before the force could be felt.

    Any insight on how the profile editor values work? I searched all the documentation and forum posts but couldn't find a description other than a very general description of it.

    Please see the SimTools manual P 104 onward: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/rtfm-start-with-the-official-simtools-documentation.117/

    The Profile Editor lets you take a generic base motion profile and then create and save variants for specific cars/tracks, see the tips here in the FAQs: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/
