CarWorld comes with a heightmap loader, which it collides as terrain 
data. It just loads height field data and bakes it to vertices/indices, 
and then builds a trimesh out of that. I believe the default in CarWorld 
is to load an "arbitrary" mesh file and build/collide against that, 
though, so you'd have to change an ifdef to get heightfield. Perhaps 
arbitrary-mesh is really what you want, though, in which case it does 
exactly that, as-is.

If you can't get it to work, it's probably an error in your usage of the 
functions (such as what data you pass in), rather than in the ODE/OPCODE 
stuff. It's pretty solid (as long as you don't do moving trimeshes).
