[JdeRobot] Run Gazebo simulator faster

Hello everyone,

I was wondering how I can speed up the Gazebo simulator, I have tried the
following methods:

   -  I have set the "Real time update rate" to '0' so that it can run as
fast as possible, but it speeds up the kobuki-simple world at most 10-12
   - Reducing the "Max step size" makes the environment and Robot unstable,
also it's just like increasing the robot's speed which is not helping.

Is there any way to make the Gazebo run faster (100-200 faster than
realtime in kobuki-simple world file per se) ? Can the Gazebo run headless
so that it does not need to process the GUI stuff ? Is it possible to run
several instances of a same world in Gazebo on a single machine using
JdeRobot ICE interface (I know how to do it using ROS) ?

And also what is the fastest physics engine in Gazebo (Using ODE right

Thanks in advance,
