Used with llSetVehicleVectorParam to set the offset for where the linear motor is to be applied from the vehicle's center of mass.

Notes

This could be useful in vehicles where the source of thrust is important, such as a rocket or an air ship. Most vehicles do not need to change this value from the default.

In rockets using this offset gives that very distinctive spiraling out of control.
