How do I start my simulation with the vehicle traveling in reverse?

Total Velocity is actually the absolute value of the velocity of the vehicle and therefore will not allow a negative value. The u component of the velocity of the vehicle is the one that reflects the direction of vehicle travel. In order to simulate a vehicle traveling backwards at the start, you will need to enter a -180 value for Sideslip which results in a negative value displayed in the u velocity field.
