wire paramater

i have 2 objects in there initial states but when i link obj_a translation to obj_b rotation it shifts i cant seem to 0 them out is there a way in the expressions to stop it from shifting?

i tried reaction manager but seems broken im in 2013

it's not zeroing out you need to convert to or from degrees. Internally rotations are stored as radians, even though they show as degrees in the UI. Try:
degToRad Translation
radToDeg Rotation
For more help refer to this topic in the Maxscript help.

Don't forget to apply a freeze transform before doing any wire, this way all your values will be zero at start.

Try restarting your max, I have had some of the macros stop responding until a restart, like the set skin pose for example.

Otherwise, here is a 'poor man's' freeze transforms. Select your objects and run this. Just make sure you set the second controller as the one you wire to.

for i in 1 to selection.count do
	selection[i].pos.controller = position_list ()
	selection[i].pos.controller.Available.controller = Position_XYZ ()
	selection[i].rotation.controller = rotation_list ()
	selection[i].rotation.controller.Available.controller = Euler_XYZ ()
