wheel joints super bouncy

Post by vkreal » Sun Feb 09, 2014 4:23 am

I made a motorcycle with RUbE using wheel joints...for some reason when motorcycle land after jump it seems super bouncy. Do anyone can shed some light on how to fix it?

Thanks!

Could be the damping of the joints is not high enough. Try starting with the default values of frequency = 4 and damping = 0.7 and adjusting from there.
