Center Tire Not Rotating

Hello Sylvain, Bruno and Team,

I have a plane whose center tire refuses to turn. I have a second version of it with float tires and they rotate fine. Main gear wheels rotate fine. But the tail dragger version 'tire' at center refuses to rotate. Have you heard of such a thing? Another plane I have made had its rear tire attached to a 'rudder' animation. It spins fine. This new one refuses to do this. I then linked it to a center_wheel animation, that didnt work. I checked, no scrape points at same height as tire. I have looked and looked for a reason for it not to work. This is a tail dragger aircraft.

Any thoughts?

No scale, I tried using dummys instead of animated the parts, I changed the names in the templates, I tried a separate Component section to see if that would help, which has in the past with animations sharing names. This didnt work. I have tried so many tricks and things. No spinning....

To make sure you understand, I am meaning the tire rotating on the ground, not the steering animation. That works excellent.

It did say it had an issue in the 'Behaviors' panel, that it needed to be 360 Frames, it was at 100F like the rest of the wheels. I made it 360, and still no spinning.
I hope you know what it might be.
