Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Adjust the center of mass on the Z, change it to a slightly negative value and that should help keep it level, as an aside if you create an event to fire if the vehicle completely flips over you can also set it to an extreme negative value temporarily and the vehicle will self correct/flip back over on its own.

Turn on show collision in the PIE to see what may be colliding, press ` and type "show collision" without the quotes and see if it is colliding with something

Do you have a video of the behavior? Maybe seeing it I will be able to better understand the issues it is having

You need to edit the bodies in PhAT looks like one of them is pulling the mesh up or colliding with the ground....it is coming into contact with something that is causing that.
