I'm doing the exact same thing (applying a GA to evolve robots), it works well.
You don't have to 'switch the graphics off', just don't turn them on! ;)

For example:

while (simTime < EVALUTATION_TIME) {
  // step the simulation
  dSpaceCollide(space, 0, &nearCallback);

  // remove all contact joints

  // step the simulation time
  simTime += timeStep;
return fitness;

Good luck!
