[ODE] Simple ODE question.

I have a simple ODE question. I am very new so trying to figure this all out still.
Question) Ok, so I have a body/geom structure for my robot. Then I have a body/geom structure for the turret. The turret rotates only along 1 axis enabling it to face up/down. The left/right rotation is taken care of by the bot. I.e, the bot rotates left/right and the turret rotates up/down. I am trying to figure out how to associate the 2 structures properly. If I add a hinge then when forces are applied to the bot the turret will receive jerks (I assume) to rotate it inproperly as it should only rotate on user input. If I keep the two structures separate and apply equal forces (or based on mass) then I am assuming there will be descrepencies that will creep into the system such that they will slowly move away from each other over time.
Just a newbie trying to figure this all out.
Thank you for your help.
