MotionMax Quick tutorial: Tweak The Traction Loss Settings to match your car’s behavior

MotionMax Quick tutorial: Tweak The Traction Loss Settings to match your car’s behavior

MotionMax Manager (MMX) do all the hard stuff for you to deliver a smooth, accurate and fast motion behaviors to your simulator but as for any race car you need to tweak settings and create your setup to match the combo track/car you drive.

This quick tutorial is focused on TL (traction loss) settings.

Please refer to the MotionMax Dashboard Information to learn how to create and save a new setup.

Getting Started With MMX 6DOF/2DOF:

http://www.eksimracing.com/motionmax-frex-edition/

 

Tweak The Traction Loss settings:

Set the TL with a maximum amplitude by setup the minimum speed at 5 (m/s) and the Sensitivity at 80%.

Start to spin on your race track (curvy track obviously for testing TL) with your favorite car,

Be sure the amplitude limiter is at it MAX value

And adjust the amount of Yaw Dynamics (ratio of TL acceleration/amplitude)  as you make the laps,

Then decrease the Sensitivity until this matches the behavior of your car (value should be between 24 to 54%), as soon as you feel perfectly the oversteer/understeer recovery you’re almost done,

Then go back on minimum speed setting and increase the value a little until the TL is hard to trigger,

Finally decrease this speed again to get the full TL effect back.

That’s it!

Congrats your combo track/car is now perfectly setup! do not forget to save your setup.

Racing Driving Course:

Compared to games it’s hard to lose the traction with a regular production car, I suggest to do a racing driving course to get the essential of the TL this will help you a lot for setting up correctly your simulator with a real behavior and not making it a pinball machine…

Get (Early) Access To Our Motion Simulator Software

Hi,

Thanks to all “Premium Access” members for your generous donation and contributions to EKSIMRacing projects, you can now get access to our MotionMax Manager software from a true 6DOF to a more conventional 2DOF motion simulators in addition to racing displays and virtual racing dash EMUlator software management.

A MotionMax “Early Access” area has been created for you to be involved in this new exiting story of EKSIMRacing, of course you need a car racing simulator! and obviously this free software license is for your PERSONAL USE only.

As you may know, I started the project of MotionMax Manager for PRO racing simulator in 2015 so this is definitely NOT a beta software but really powerful, efficient and PRO racing simulator software I want to share with you today. Nothing related with the gaming experience you might have with other simulator software in this category. It’s as good for serious PRO training as it is for entertainment.

We at EKSIMRacing are proud to give you today an exclusive access to the 6DOF to 2DOF racing car simulator software technology to thank you for supporting us during almost a decade and we are going to start with the most popular simulator out there the 2DOF with an optional traction loss or surge (braking/accel.) channel based on the popular SCN Actuators. The 6 DOF SCN Edition is also available if you’re ready to build such motion simulator.

MotionMax 2DOF SCN Edition software license contains:
+ the management of 2 SCN Actuators for the 2DOF (CORE layer)
+ an optional SCN actuator for Traction Loss (TC layer)
+ and/or an optional SCN actuator for the braking/accelleration (SURGE Layer)

The MotionMax “Early Access” area is now open with all info to get started quickly. see u there.
