Autonomous Mode - same animation for several cars

our goal is to animate several different car models in autonomous mode using the same path curve, the same settings and get the same resulting animation (regarding foward movement). Just to ask in general first: is this considered possible?

It is basicly just a very simple straight curve, for driving directly from A to B. It works for all models (except for some very minor differences, which I think can be considered like 'noise'), but one car model just accelerates differently - just slower, clearly visible in the resulting translation curve. How can this probably related to the geometry or hierarchy? - the strange thing is that it really works for all other models.

Hi Felix,

Sounds like something is changed in the configuration for that specific model. The 4-Wheeler Extended does not make any changes if not the user has made changes.
I would suggest that you compare the configurations between one that is correct and this one. Sometimes you may have a "Initial Velocity" put this to zero but sometimes you actually need to re-rigg the model to get it to work correct. You are also able to use the clone feature.
