There have been many reports that the cylinder does not work 
right with trimesh collision. It reportedly generates contacts 
that are outside of the actual cylinder volume. Again, those who 
have tested in detail also claim you can't make a good, driveable 
car using cylinders as wheels, driving on a trimesh terrain.
