Xbox 360 controller's Triggers (Z-axis!?!)

so, I’m trying to use the Xbox 360 controller for windows with my racing game. I’d like to use the Right trigger and Left trigger for brake and gas. However, the default drivers that came with it show the triggers as the Z-axis. Now, the joystick actuator doesn’t have an easy to see Z-axis sensor. If anyone knows a way to trick it into thinking that the Z-axis through making it like, a separate joystick or something, I would be very grateful.

Note Unfortunately, the way I’m using it does not allow for the python script to both sense the Z-axis, as well as move the object

I’ll post a blend if you want it.

If you use xbcd instead of the default microsoft drivers, you can set the triggers to whatever you want.
