The short answer is no, there's no built in feature in AE that does what you're asking.
The long answer is, someone very proficient with Expressions and/or Scripting might be able to write the code to do what you want to do.
Additionally, there are a few third party tools available that help with creating real-world physics within AE. The most prominent is not cheap and called Newton:
Hmm... in such a case. I'd need to find another solution to the issue at hand. I may create a separate thread for this, but in specifics, I need a way to animate tank tracks realistically. That is, have them follow a normal path, curving around the wheels. The only issue is there being many many tank track pieces, and animating them all individually... I'm thinking there must be a better way to move many identical pieces along a set path while keeping them separate
Just paste the motion path onto each elements layer. then sequence the layers in time.
I'm trying to avoid doing another job so I made you an example. :-)
Here's the project file
For some reason Dropbox is adding a .txt suffix to the end of the filename. If that happens to you, just delete the .txt from the filename and you should have a CS6 AE project file.
