Ok I've got a few problems trying to get steering to work on a car sim I'm
working on. First off, I'm treating the wheels as spheres (is this correct for
starters? I think it is as test_buggy uses spheres, and one contact point per
wheel with the ground seems logical).
Now, for steering I try to apply a torque to the front two wheels, which are
attached to the chasis via a hinge2 joint each (it's a four wheeled vehical
unlike test_buggy's 3), in the direction that I want the car to turn. I have
the proper stops set for the joints, however it's going wrong somewhere.
Instead of turning, the car's front (the end going forwards) ploughs downwards
into the ground? Anyone else run into this problem, or am I simply doing
