Sorry one more follow-up question,

What does setting the default axis in a Mass object do if it doesn't define the direction of the associated body?  For example,

M = ode.Mass()
M.setCappedCylinder(10, direction (x-axis = 1), radius, length)
body1.setMass(M)
body1.setPosition((some position x, y, z))

Setting stuff on Mass objects is basically just to define physical simulation properties like center of mass, moment of inertia, etc. Try printing a Mass object some time, and you'll see all it defines. It has nothing to do with the collision detection or other rigid body functions (position, rotation, joints, etc.).
