I assume you have fine tuned the wheel diameter values to get travel function to work accurately. You basically tune the trackWidth parameter (note that trackWidth for a conventional wheeled robot is the distance between the wheels), to get turns to work. I seem to remember that a good starting point for a tracked vehicle is the diagonal distance of the two tracks, but I may be wrong on that. Try it and see, then try reducing and increasing the value to see how it impacts the turn. It should not take long to get things working reasonably well. One thing you may find is that the surface that the robot is on has a big impact on how the robot turns.
