<Adding a force to the body is the approach I used, and it works well for
<me.  Make the force proportional to the distance between the mouse and the
<body, and (this is important) use damping to prevent the body of

Hey Nate,
thanks for your answer. But I dont understand yet how I can add a force to
the body
without bring him to roll. Of course I can add the force in the center of
gravity of
my robot but so it we will be a bit complicate because the center of
gravitiy can be outside
of the body. Perhaps you can explain your damping example to me ?
