Can anyone point me to a good LW 2015 Bullet constraint tutorial? I'm looking to rig a vehicle with suspension using springs and hinges and such. Having a little difficulty getting my head wrapped around how these things can be put together. I'm surprised at the lack of info out there on this.

Thanks!

For myself, I dissected the Mars Rover scene to begin with, I learned a lot about bullet by playing and modifying the scene. Then I dissected the Remote Control Car scene:

Thanks chikega. I watched both of these a number of times and I also loaded the demo scenes. I'd like to set up a vehicle that has motorcycle swingarm type suspension for each wheel. I've played around with it for a bit but the problem I have is trying to use both hinges and springs together at the same time on the same part. Also, my springs don't want to stay put, they want to rotate sideways. Maybe I'm trying to use them backwards? Lol
