Vehicle wheel collision problem
We have a problem with the vehicle system. We have checked all tutorials, videos and other relevant stuff that posted by either community or epic heroes, but couldn't find a point about that.
We have imported our vehicle model to Unreal Engine 4, set all necessary settings with that. Model has 4 tire bones which are connected to root bone placed at 0,0,0, defined collisions as sphere for wheels, box for body temporarily. When we press forward button, force goes to wheels, not problem with that either.
But the weird point is, when we set wheel collisions in physics asset as "kinematic", (body(root) stays at default), unreal does not recognize wheels' collisions. Vehicle falls to ground within collision of the body's constrains.
If we set all wheels as simulated, problems'd have been solved, but as predicted, vehicle does not move in that case. If we set wheels as kinematic, wheels go under the floor, unreal detects only body collision.
By the way, if we simulate the vehicle's physics in physics asset tool, physics go crazy, but in level scene as controller, that physics madness is not happening.
Thanks for your help in advance.

I fixed it in C4D by rotating and rebinding he joints, if anyone wants that FBX, here it is...

If you guys allow me to post something to make it clear and simple?
i had tons of problems too, i spent many hours on this, and i have many copies of the same car just because of all this
finaly i found out that it is far simpler than i thought, I used the mannequin for measures.

Okay, Jacky's method has solved the issue, even in maya. As I understand, 3ds Max's reset xform equals to Maya's Reset transformations. After setting all bones properly, we reset transformations and that made the problem been resolved. Thank you Jacky! :)

If anyone is still wondering, make sure to look for the fix in that thread:
