[ODE] Trimesh As Ground??

Trimesh vs trimesh collision is indeed a weak point of ode. I recently 
tried ODE with the Bullet collision detection system 
(http://www.continuousphysics.com/Bullet/) which has excellent collision 
detection, there's an example to combine Bullet and ODE in the Bullet SDK.

You may also try the heightfield collider or other different collision
