any one knows how ode work with wight and mass

I dont think ODE scale and mass are easely translated to "real world" pounds and miles.
My experience is that diffent mass/forces/scales produce very different outcome.
Even if they are proportionally  the same.
Example : a body with a mass 1000, a force 1000, scale 1000 and a mass 1000 will behave
differently than a body with  mass 100, force 100 scale 100 and mass 100, don't ask me why.
Before I used to scale my things to enourmous proportions (with forces 10000000 or something just to get things moving). But now
I try to keep the scale and mass below 5, it produces better results I think (depending on what you want to simulate of course).
