my game will work, my game will work!

There is no movement on the Y plane except rotation, which is 'heading' below.  

to strafe right I am trying:

1  
2  
            xpos += (float) Math.cos(heading * CubeWars.piover180) * speed;
            zpos += (float) Math.sin(heading * CubeWars.piover180) * speed;


At game launch, strfing right works, but the moment I rotate on the Y axis, strafing no longer works.
Where is my math wrong?  (I was a Bio major who only took calculus in 1985, so laugh it up! Smiley )

I'm just copying in the code to strafe right in Auriga3D, so you can work it take a stab at converting it for your purposes.  +Z is up in Auriga3D / Quake3

 */

public final void strafeRight(float step)
{
   origin.x -= step * (float) Math.sin(yaw + STRAFERIGHT);
   origin.y += step * (float) Math.cos(yaw + STRAFERIGHT);
}


STRAFERIGHT = -90 * PIDIV180;
yaw is rotation about the Z axis
