In motion simulation, motion input scaling is often applied to deal with the limited motion envelopes of motion simulators. In this research, the time-varying effects of scaling the lateral specific force up or down during passive curve driving in a car driving simulation are investigated through a simulator experiment. It is concluded that lateral specific force scaling has a time-varying effect on the perceived fidelity of a curve-driving simulation. In particular, motion scaling during a curve entry is found to be less detrimental than motion scaling during a curve's sustained part and during the curve exit.
