## Vehicle Type Wheel |

A definition of the wheel for the vehicle type.

Properties

Name | Description |
---|---|

Position | The position offset for the wheel. |

Diameter | The diameter of the wheel. |

Width | The width of the wheel. |

Count | The amount of wheels on one side. |

Distance | The distance between wheels on one side. |

Pair | Whether to create two wheels, instead of one. Use it to make three-wheellers, airplanes. |

Mesh | The mesh of the wheel. |

Mass | The mass of the wheel. |

Suspension Min Length | How long the suspension is in max raised position relative to the attachment point (m). |

Suspension Max Length | How long the suspension is in max droop position relative to the attachment point (m). |

Suspension Preload Length | The natural length (m) of the suspension spring is defined as SuspensionMaxLength + SuspensionPreloadLength. |

Anti Roll Bar Stiffness | Stiffness (spring constant in N/m) of front wheel anti rollbar. Can be 0 to disable the anti-rollbar. |

Max Brake Torque | How much torque (Nm) the brakes can apply to front wheel. |

Max Hand Brake Torque | How much torque (Nm) the hand brake can apply to front wheel. |

Angular Damping | Angular damping factor of the wheel: dw/dt = -c * w. |

Longitudinal Friction | v_longitudinal|. |

Lateral Friction | Friction in sideway direction of tire as a function of the slip angle (degrees): angle between relative contact velocity and vehicle direction. |

Max Steering Angle | The maximal steering angle of front wheels. |

Differential Ratio | Ratio between rotation speed of gear box and wheels. |

Differential Left Right Split | Defines how the engine torque is split across the left and right wheel (0 = left, 0.5 = center, 1 = right). |

Differential Limited Slip Ratio | Ratio max / min wheel speed. When this ratio is exceeded, all torque gets distributed to the slowest moving wheel. This allows implementing a limited slip differential. Set to FLT_MAX (3.402823466e+38F) for an open differential. Value should be > 1. |

Differential Engine Torque Ratio | How much of the engines torque is applied to this differential (0 = none, 1 = full). |

Tracks Longitudinal Friction | Friction in forward direction of tire. For Tracks mode only. |

Tracks Lateral Friction | Friction in sideway direction of tire. For Tracks mode only. |
