BryceGTX is on a distinguished road
So now we run the Simulation with the mast. We see the natural frequency period of about 4 seconds and we notice that the damping causes the rolling to die out after about 5 cycles.

We notice a peak angular displacement of about +-4 degrees. THis is with a 5 degree step forcing function.
