Wheel Physics Issue and Decoupling/Undocking/Docking has been a major problem since 1.4.3
KSP 1.4.2, 1.4.3, 1.5.1, 1.6.1
Since 1.4.3 A craft will bottom out on the suspension or bounce when Decoupling/Undocking/Docking causing
damage to the wheels or even outright destroying them.
Every bug fix since 1.4.3 and wheels seem to have avoided this issue, I have tested this with small rovers
to show whats happening and I have Hacked Gravity to 0.44 to attempt to show how the suspension drops at times.
Also note that they act a little differently at times when reloading a quicksave.
Note how 1.4.2 is almost perfect on docking, and perfect on undocking.
All other versions shouldnt be affecting the wheels/suspension at all but are for some reason.
I am pretty sure this is what has been damaging the wheels on decouple/docking/undocking over
the versions going from 1.4.3 to 1.6.1.
was created in 1.4.2 and was used for all the testing for this report.
Note that quick loading does cause the wheels to act differently after the first one for some reason
so repeatedly reloading it will cause a different results but the movement will always be there.
Tell me if you want any other testing to be done.

- Version changed from 1.6.1 to 1.7.0
- Platform OSX added
This appears to be bug #19343 again, which, despite being marked closed, is pretty obviously still not fully fixed.
See attached craft: in 1.7.0, uncoupling any of the Jr. docking ports causes explosions.
