You need to tune the CFM and ERP parameters of the suspension until it 
behaves the way you want it. This is the hardest part of physical 
modeling: Finding good parameters that look good, while not flipping 
your vehicle over. I spent days on it in the old carworld demo, and at 
least a few hours on it for the ray contacts for the raycar demo.
