What car are you using for testing this stuff? What kind of suspension geometry?

Unfortunately, it happens with all cars.

Maybe a clue, at last.
There are subtle wobbles in the toe angles.

On the rear of the sprint cars, that is a solid axle of course, this issue seems to be due to missing linkages on the left and right. At the moment the only linkages are the differential and a panhard bar.
For all the other cars, the tie rods seem to be bugged, generating some bump steer.

Glad you've got hold of the end of a string!  Imagine trying to diagnose why your suspension isn't working right without being able to code custom debugging tools though like the genius who made you go down this miserable path. ;)

How on earth would the car work at all with only a pan hard bar and driveline? Lol it's missing at least 6 linkages. 2 tie rods on left/right and the shocks.

Of course there are the shocks, too.
It is "only" missing one linkage on the left and one on the right.

Yeah, thats right, I forgot that the Sprint Cars used the torsion bar and a single tie rod in sort of a z-bar type suspension. The shocks are generally tied to the torsion bar. They do however use a jacobs ladder, not a true panhard bar. Is that coded in yet?

True, real sprint cars use a jacobs ladder. However, it is not simulated and has been approximated using a panhard bar  :-[

Sorry for abusing your patience.
Since the 8th WRS development is paused to focus on a new MXB release :-[
Hopefully it will not take more than a week.
Work on WRS will resume immediately after, with the goal to finally release a new build sometime around the 25th.

Work has resumed on WRS.
Making quick and good progress.

Again, sorry for the wait.

Though with the "misc tasks for release early this week we were close to release. I see the past few days we are back to "physics tuning" Wondering if a bug or something showed up in testing?

Physics data tuning should be over now.

The new build should be ready for release. Final testing in progress.

Does anyone know the approximate weight of the sprint cars tires and rims?
Even the weight of the full wheel would be helpful.
