Keep momentum between pawns

I have a Vehicle and a regular 3rd Person character that can be swapped at any time when pressing a key.

In order for this to happen, though, I am not changing models, but rather destroying the current pawn and spawning a new one at the same location, which means the new pawn is completely motionless, even if the previous one was moving at a high speed. I would like to know how I could keep this momentum.

Setting velocity in both pawns and changing de gear and throttle in the vehicle didn’t do anything.

I thought about messing around with physics, but didn’t quite know how to go about it. How should I go about it? Should I not change pawns at all and, instead, just try and switch the current mesh?

Not sure why you need to make 2 posts for this: Keep momentum when switching Pawns - World Creation - Unreal Engine Forums

Why not not destroy the actors and just use the PlayerController to change the Possesion of the pawns?

Thats what I am currently doing, actually. I grab the current players controller, spawn the new pawn and possess it, destroying the other one. Should this already transfer the physics state (or at least the current velocity and acceleration) of one pawn to the other?

And regarding the double post… this one was not showing in my account, so I thought something went wrong when posting the question. Sorry about that.
