I created a vehicle model similar to the CATvehicle in Indigo(Gazebo 2) which works perfectly. When I upgraded to Kinetic(Gazebo 7), the wheels slipped and the vehicle didn't move forward. I tried the solution mentioned here but unfortunately it didn't work out. The vehicle moved forward when I changed the mu2 value to 100000000 in the world file but the vehicle still doesn't turn and slips a bit.

Let me know if there is any solution by which my vehicle model would work perfectly in Gazebo 7 as it worked in Gazebo 2.

Have you tried increasing maxContacts (say to 10)? Also may be worth increasing mu1 (try mu1=100, mu2=100).

Yeah I did try but it doesn't work either.
