What are the limits for the front wheel joints? have you configured them? Because if you don't, they won't rotate at all.

You should use the utilities provided by gazebo to debug your problem.

The tutorials are a great place to start.

You can also visualize joints, inertia, collisions in the GUI.

thats fine i think we were actually running the same model which i built with ros indigo and hence with gazebo 2.2 Now we have switched to ros kinetic and hence gazebo 7 some of the gazebo api's like set max force have been deprecated and hence there is no way to set max force now, thats why i think the front wheels tend to drag out a lot. is there any fix?
