Why is autosrtrut locked to heaviest part?

Question

Because the devs needed to put a bandaid on the wheels when they were released (err updated in 1.0 or whatever the wheel update was) cause of some major wobbling issues or something of the sort.  I asked this question ages ago and they said that it was done to prevent issues.

What i do have an issue with is that there is no way to override this even if you are willing to let the kraken out.  I know its a possible risk of craft exploding/wobbling/going poof, but i think its about time to unlock the autostrut forced behavior (at least in a config flag or something) for those of us that want to make legit suspensions not reliant on the wheel itself.  What do you say @SQUAD?

This is unacceptable. This is a design I've been using without issue for ages, until now. Now, because of the autostrut lock, this thing bounces around like a beach ball. Unacceptable.

Can this behavior be modified by editing the .cfg?

If matters how the gear are attached. If attached to a part like the i-ibeam that is perpendicular to it's parent, then the craft bounces itself around until it flips over or destroys itself. If gear are attached to a structural fuselage that attaches in parallel to it's parent, then the gear works just fine. Whether or not the autostrut has anything to do with it I don't know. I can't test it because it's locked. The landing gear are broken worse now than they have ever been as far as I can tell.

Set spring/damper setting to manual and crank the damper all the way to 2.0. Do this for both sets of wheels and the bouncing will go away.

made no difference at all. Damper at 2.0, still bounces until it flips over and breaks on the runway.

Try increasing the spring strength to max.

And this has nothing to do with the autostrut. It only has to do with the suspension settings. Different wheel sizes also have different behaviors.

spring strength set to max, no change.. Bouncing like a beach ball.

Took your configuration (the one with the I-beams) for a spin. It remains stable at a max spring setting of 0.3. Dampers can be left to 1.0.

lowering the spring strength works pretty good. thanks
