Get help using Construct 2

hello folks, okay im pretty new to construct 2 but got a pretty good grasp of the essentials but have one problem which I really need help with.

Ill put it simply, I have a physics wheel and want to put another physics wheel inside it like a clutch, so ill spin up the inner wheel then on a press of a button I want to transfer the momentum and force to the outer wheel and send them both moving, is this possible and if so please let me know, thanks in advance, love C2 btw :)

It is definitely possible, but maybe not with the basic Physics engine.

You might need to implement your own friction model for your wheels.

Ask Google: ... h-friction

non circular friction: ... n-behavior

The math:
I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.
