Default Free Roll

I have nitro and it free rolls therefore I just coast into corners but electrics don't coast. Its like drag brake. How am i suppose to drive one with a one-way and how can you drive it if it free rolls

I use a bit of forward trim to create the 'roll' effect in stock racing but it's not necessary for mod, atleast for me.

im not sure how to adjust the gt7 but check what profile you are on, mod profiles will have some drag brake dialed in, stock wont.

THe car rolls but it is slowed down by the magnets in the motor so the car really doesn't free roll like a nitro. I was wondering if it is possible to make the car free roll

Well, you can remove the magnets from the motor. Of course, that may affect acceleration.

A well set up electric car will coast for a long time anyway (not as far as a nitro in neutral), so if your car feels like it's slowing noticeably when you lift off, there's probably too much friction in your transmission.
