Thanks so much for the help. And sorry for one more question, but I guess
this is where my math gets weak :-(
To do this "perfectly" wouldn't I need to understand the same integration
proccess ODE is using so I can calculate the correct torque for that
timestep? Or do you think it would be good enough just to use a Euler
method to calculate what the counter-torque would need to be.
Thanks again!
