    Hi Ross, good work. Please check out Simulation tutorial 5 on how to assign simple color per mesh (or wheel in your case). Use the DiffuseColor field in the ShapeProperties, or specify a texture per mesh, like sim tutorial 5 mentions.

    Right now the default color for your mesh will be black since you have alot of programmatically  created meshes, with no difusse color or file based mesh.
