Non-clustered geometry collections applied RemoveAllAnchors are not put into FPBDRigidsSOAs::DynamicGeometryCollectionArray, so acceleration is not reset every tick and they fall super fast.
The following workarounds will work.

void FGeometryCollectionPhysicsProxy::RemoveAllAnchors_External()

	if (Chaos::FPhysicsSolver* RBDSolver = GetSolver<Chaos::FPhysicsSolver>())
		RBDSolver->EnqueueCommandImmediate([this, RBDSolver]()
				Chaos::FPBDRigidsEvolution* Evolution = RBDSolver->GetEvolution();

				// disable anchoring where relevant and collect the nodes to update
				Chaos::FKinematicTarget NoKinematicTarget;
				for (FClusterHandle* ParticleHandle : GetSolverParticleHandles())
					if (ParticleHandle)
						if (!ParticleHandle->IsDynamic())
							Evolution->SetParticleObjectState(ParticleHandle, Chaos::EObjectStateType::Dynamic);
							Evolution->SetParticleKinematicTarget(ParticleHandle, NoKinematicTarget);
				Evolution->GetParticles().UpdateGeometryCollectionViews(); //workaround
Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open attached project on ue5.1 [Link Removed]
  2. Start PIE
  3. After 2 seconds, RemoveAllAnchors is applied to the left cube and it falls extremely fast.
