My guess would be SDK's - setting the wheels to turn when the car is moved foward. Using dynamics could also work.

You should learn some simpler animation and modelling before you get into harder stuff.

mr2turbosw20: theres was a tutorial on the A|W site that explains how you could animate a tanks tread - same technique could be applied for getting the motion of the wheels rotation v's distance travelled. cant remember the exact link, but shouldt be too hard to find
