This is an older project that I have been developing on my own during my free time and I have decided to polish it and publish it for free for the community to create some awesome stuff with it.

Thanks so much for the support guys, I’m glad you are enjoying the rig. I have already started working on the version 1.01 implementing the most requested feature – realistic tire deformation, check out the progress:

OLDER UPDATES:

As you can see on the latest screenshots below I’m acutally not that far from the release as all this projects needs is just a final polish and it’s ready to go!

Simple and easy to use control rig.

Automatic wheel rotation tied to the translation of the main controller works even when the wheels are turned. At the same time you can still cover bumps on the road by tilting the axles (circles facing the camera). Drift control (circle on the ground) allows you to move the truck without the wheels spinning.
