Realistic driving experience

RE: Realistic driving experience
Thank you for your pointers.

When driving on a normal closed circuit, is the ground contact always calculated using the mesh of the terrain directly? Or is this only used as fallback when leaving the race track?

I did a checkout of your sim branch. Unfortunately I wasn't able to compile it, receiving the following error:

src/game.cpp: In constructor ‘GAME::GAME(std::ostream&, std::ostream&)’:
src/game.cpp:126:70: error: invalid conversion from ‘bool (*)(btManifoldPoint&, const btCollisionObject*, int, int, const btCollisionObject*, int, int)’ to ‘ContactAddedCallback {aka bool (*)(btManifoldPoint&, const btCollisionObjectWrapper*, int, int, const btCollisionObjectWrapper*, int, int)}’ [-fpermissive]

Compiling the latest version from the master branch was successful. One thing I noticed however is that the cars react very nervous (I'm using mouse steering). It is almost impossible to drive in a straight line, even at low speeds.
Another thing which I could observe was a very weird collision behaviour with corner curbs. Sometimes after hitting a corner curb the car was flung over almost the entire map.
