Wheel Joint 2D motor and gravity

I'm creating a 2D car game (driving hills). I use Wheel Joint 2D to implement car suspension and wheel rotation. It works quite well on flat terrain.

Now I would like to add a gravity influence to a motor speed. Unfortunately gravity works only when I deactivate useMotor. Otherwise I just stand on the side of a hill and don't move.

Is there any way to sum gravity and motor velocities?

I think what you want to do is reduce the friction between the wheels and the ground. Experiment with the physics material you set on the wheels and/or the ground.

I hope that helps!

I figured it out. Here's a sample project with motor script attached.

Now it works like a charm!
