I have explained the problem in that article. Knowing the answer rates in UE4 answerhub I decided to ask here. How do I solve that problem? It should be easier with the functions aviable in UE4, but yet I have no idea where to start to make this... I hope that there is somebody who knows how to solve this, though!:D

This is not that simple. This is even a very complex problem.

 

You can have some hints about how to solve your problems by reading these (first answers from my google query car physics and car collision physics):

Thanks! I'll look into those!:)

Well, I know 2 of those articles already. I've solved most of those problems. Actually my problem now is correctly visualising car. And at this moment the visualisation problem is the camber angle. I can't find a good way to visualise camber angle that can change dynamically... And by visualise I mean applying calculated data to visual meshes of wheels.

OK! So I decided to store the Y rotation in a seperate vartiable. Each frame I reset the wheel's relative rotation and than adjust the camber. After that I rotate the wheel around it's local Y axis by the variable amount. The result is statisfying :)
