I like beaming drive, but it does tend to make everything (including planes) a bit "floppy"  :)

I do agree with HiFlyer, BeamNG lacks weight and structural integrity. Everything tends to fall apart and skid along the surface of roads. Take a nook at Next Car Game's destruction. It's not as precise as BeamNGs but it makes more sense. Engine blocks are extremely hard to compress under an impact IRL,  unlike BeamNG where it's just as hard as the body panels.

Note: I do not claim to know everything.
I just like to help people around the forum.

 ... didnt play with it, but maybe its just the comfort of the importer to not spend time properly tweaking the spring-constants for all parts ?
