I'm using XNA 4.0 and FPE 3.3.1 if that helps. CharBody doesn't move or rotate.

Did you try to simply use a greater force than 1000? Also is it .Step that is used now in 3.3.1 and not Update? I assume the rest of Farseer is working?

Yes I did use a force greater than 1000. .Step is used in 3.3.1 as far as I can tell because the rest of Farseer works...
