[ODE] gravity pulls car through groundplane

0.5 is way too big a timestep; 0.01 is more reasonable.

There's a fully working car demo (with source) that was built with ODE 
from about a year ago available at 
http://www.mindcontrol.org/~hplus/carworld/ -- note: it needs a GLSL 
capable graphics card.
