Title says it all really. How can I tell if my vehicle is going forwards or backwards? The linear_velocity only gives its speed.

try

print(linear_velocity.z)

Thanks! Do I feel stupid. I assumed the linear_velocity was always positive.

You could get your object TRANSFORM basis and compare it to velocity vector by using dot product dot , but I am sure You would be able to extract this information much easier from your input code. You must have coded some conditions when vehicle drives forward or backward, just use them.
