Restitution defines tire restitution(not implemented atm). The tread parameter ranges over arbitrary values of 0.0 to 1.0, where 0.0 is a road tire and 1.0 is an off-road tire. The two elements of rolling-resistance are the constant and velocity-squared terms, respectively. The longitudinal, transverse, and aligning section each contain a vector of “magic formula” coefficients as presented in Motor Vehicle Dynamics, Genta (1997). A description is shown below:
