I am currently experimenting with 3ds max 9, I am at present just creating a box as the body then 4 cylinders as the wheels. I am playing about with linear dashpot, motor and point to point tools. But the wheel axis are just loosening up and getting messy. These seem the right things to be using but probably not as I am attching them or the settings that I am using.
I would appreciate any tips and I am looking to model a nice looking car, but reluctant to yet as I would like to figure out how to animate it. I have seen an animation on you tube of a jeep going over a rough terrain which look good and would like something similar.
