If you call dCollide with correct data, it will return correct contacts. 
You do not need to use ODE world stepping or simulation at all.

If you are doing trimesh <-> trimesh collisions, make sure that the 
transforms are correct, that the winding data of your triangles goes in 
the right direction, and that you pass the correct stride and data 
format for the triangle vertices. You may also wish to set the "last 
transform" of your geom, to generate less bad separating contacts.
