I have built a belt tensioner with 2 x 70kg RC servos & an Arduino UNO.

I used simhub to upload the PWM sketch.

1st issue is that simhub will not move the motors with a test pulse? However they do move when playing iracing.

2nd issue is how they react. They don't move even when braking in a straight line. Most times only one belt will apply tension.

They also don't release once I start to accelerate. They stay in a tensioned state. 

Any ideas.

I uploaded the PWM sketch from simhub. Is there a sketch I should load from IDE? Where can I find it?

actually wotever done a specific belt tensionner, but i dont know if this is compatible with your system...

you should try the discord that is very useful and there is also a option in simhub

setting>Plugins>belt tensionner to allow and try if that works

i know there is an alternative check this link:

but it's in french

edit: apparentely you can manage the effect in shake it motor by select "desceleration"
