Firstly, I want to thank the Erle-Robotics team for putting together the software necessary to run simulations of their products. This along with the tutorials for how to use it has been a great resource and has made my start up with Ros / Gazebo much easier.

I was wondering if there was anyway to modify the speed characteristics of the simulated rover?
As of right now I use a python script to post messages to the '/mavros/rc/override' topic, but even at the max value (1900) the rover seems to move pretty slowly.
I have not bought the physical erle-rover yet (plan to once the simulation framework is complete), but is the speed of the simulated rover comparable to the physical rover?
I have been using a different physical RC rover frame and I know that this one if capable of moving pretty fast and if it accelerates to max speed too quickly, is likely to flip. This does not seem to be an issue for the simulated rover, but I would like it to be.
So in short, is there a way to modify the simulated rover's speed capabilities? Whether it be in Ardupilot, the URDF file, MAVROS, the 3DR_Rover.param file, or maybe a Gazebo setting?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
