URDF-Joint: Car Model bounces [closed]

Hi there. I'm using Ros Indigo with Gazebo2.

I modeled a car with two fixed rearwheels and two steerable (revolute joints) frontwheels using URDF. When the simulation starts the car falls down in the front. If i reduce the mass of the chassis the car won't fall down in the front anymore but starts to bounce. If I reduce the chassis mass to a small number (1kg) it almost stops bouncing.

My guess is, that this joint can only take a certain amount of weight.

How can I resolve this issue? After all my chassis weighs over 500 kg.

This, and your previous question, are really Gazebo questions. You would probably have more luck asking them over at the Gazebo Answers site. I'm going to close this one, please re-open it there.

I know this may seem a bit harsh, but with over 30.000 questions here on ROS Answers, we try to keep it really on-topic. Additionally: experts on Gazebo simulation will be more likely to see your question on the Gazebo Answers site, hence my recommendation.
