How to rotate AssemblyAngularVelocity Vector?


I have an example place included of kicking a ball that curves left, right, back or top using the magnus formula.

However, I cannot get the magnus force of the ball, and the spin of the ball to go in the same direction.

For example, if I curve the ball to the left, it curves to the left but the ball has a back spin and not a left spin. I assume the solution is to somehow rotate the angular velocity vector that I set, but I’ve been stuck for days, tried everything and cannot figure out how to get it working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!

local ballObject = script.Parent:WaitForChild("Handle")
local tool = script.Parent

local player = game:GetService("Players").LocalPlayer
local character = player.Character or player.CharacterAdded:Wait()
local HRP = character:WaitForChild("HumanoidRootPart")
local mouse = player:GetMouse()

--Left means the ball spins to the left but it doesn't actually curve to the left
local curveAngles = {
	["Right"] = CFrame.Angles(math.rad(90), math.rad(0), 0), --Spins right, but does a backspin curve
	["Left"] = CFrame.Angles(math.rad(-90), math.rad(0), 0), --Spins left, but does a topspin curve
	["Top"] = CFrame.Angles(math.rad(0), math.rad(90), 0), --Spins top, but does a left curve
	["Back"] = CFrame.Angles(math.rad(0), math.rad(-90), 0), --Spins back, but does a right curve

local ball

game["Run Service"].Heartbeat:Connect(function(dt)
	if ball ~= nil then
		if ball.AssemblyLinearVelocity.Magnitude > 0 then
			local v = ball.AssemblyLinearVelocity
			local vs = ball.AssemblyAngularVelocity
			local s = 1
			local magnus = s * (vs * ball.AssemblyMass)
			ball.MagnusForce.Force = magnus

	--Sets ball kick direction
	local upAngle = CFrame.Angles(math.rad(40), 0, 0)
	local direction = (HRP.CFrame * upAngle).LookVector
	--Sets ball power
	local power = 120 * direction

	--Clone ball and set position
	local ballPosition = HRP.CFrame *, 2, -2)
	ball = ballObject:Clone()
	ball.CFrame =
	ball.CanCollide = true
	ball.Parent = game.Workspace
	--Set velocity
	ball.AssemblyLinearVelocity = power
	--Set curve direction and set angular velocity
	local curveDirectionName = "Top"
	ball.AssemblyAngularVelocity = (HRP.CFrame * curveAngles[curveDirectionName]).LookVector * 50
