    I was thinking of doing an update on my 2dof system, but changing the engines would require a modification in the structure. My platform follows the pattern of two wiper engines in front. If I put a third engine in the back will I have a significant increase in some effects or will it not make a difference? Thank you

    If you are thinking of adding a third motor I would suggest it would best be used for traction loss, if you use your rig primarily for race games.
