    I got an idea and started modeling, then at one point subdivide is not working, no doubles, edges and vertices, everything goes same, but those few faces are not getting split properly:
    upload_2018-6-9_18-23-6.png

    I guess only way is to split them one by one and make faces individually.

    Here again, it did not want to subdivide triangles, so I did subdivide quads and moved edge loop with shift-V closer to point:

    Not sure why that happens, but there are lot of such which I'm not sure about.

    Update: Experimenting:
    upload_2018-6-9_19-36-5.png

    Just a visual study:
    upload_2018-6-9_19-51-38.png upload_2018-6-9_19-52-42.png
    Probably will not happen, as it is too problematic at least in current BeamNG version, shadow issues and disappears too soon etc. Then again it might be just my inability to solve those issues.

    Then again there is the solar system.

    Because GM is body on frame from the 70s and Charger is a modern unibody. Use scaled Sunburst jbeam instead.

    I've tried using the sunburst jbeam before, it drives very weird.

    it stalls itself and it oversteers all the time.
    --- Post updated ---
    i copied the 5.5l v8 engine from the gm and put it into the sunburst jbeams and it still stalls

    It's better to not copy/paste the engine from some other car jbeam and put it into another car jbeam, better put the original Charger engine instead :)

    did you copy anything else like transmissions or even suspension, which might help
    there's no reason for it to stall, and oversteer's just because the sunburst is lighter than the GM and the GM engine most likely has more power

    Well, to be fair the grand marshal jbeam and to some degree model is totally wrong and is built as a unibody. Though that doesn't change the fact it doesn't even slightly line up with the roof, pillars and hood.

    It still performs differently from a modern car in a crash.

    Use debug views to see node names and how beams and nodes are set up, then it is easier to see how you need to connect bars to vehicle:

    Just keep the original Sunburst engine block and powertrain jbeam and modify the torque curve. Then begin making it RWD. It will be hard, but you'll be learning how to make good mods.

    Same tho, it's not very much recommendated that you follow the damage system of the real car you're making, do the shit you want.
    It's not that necesary to COPY THE ORIGINAL CAR :p

    Its a simulator, its quite literally made to simulate vehicles. Meaning realism is pretty important...

    I know it performs bad but as others said, the GM is a different kind of car.
    To be honest I dont know what kind of suspension the charger has but I would pick a vanilla car with the same suspension type and edit the body. IE: take the sunburst, delete everything but the suspension attachment nodes, move those to the right position and then make a body around it.
    just my 2cents. Otherwise it will never be a charger but a GM meshslap.
