    Hello!

    I created 4 WheelColliders, I am adding motorTorque to the 2 rear wheels.
    When I test it, the car moves slightly to the right. What could cause such behavior ?

    5.0 beta? Cars are expected to be aligned along the Z axis (forward). That way, when positive motorTorque is applied, the car would travel forward heading Z. One way to get something you see would be to align your car along X, but the actual movement will still be along Z thus perceived as a movement right\left.

    Unity 4.6.1, the car itself is moving in the right direction, towards Z axis, but the rotation Y is changing and the car is turning slightly, WheelCollider's wheel sizes and everything is identical. Can't figure it out.
