Question When car turns, how do I add this rotation to turret?

    Hi, I'm making a game of a car with a turret on top. The problem is the turret rotates only relative to itself and the world. When the car turns, the turret doesn't rotate with it. This is good for other applications, but how can I have it rotate only relative to the car body? Is there an easy way to do this or would I have to find the change in rotation of the car and add it to the turret rotation?

    Entirely depends on how you're implemented the turret, which is something you don't mention:
    - Is it a rigidbody, attached to the car via a joint?
    - Is it a regular transform, attached to the car via position constraint?
    - Some other method?
