Well, first of all, those models have insane amounts of polygons/detail.
So to get them ingame you'd spend alot of time just trying to get the detail down.

Second, you'd need permission from the guy who made the models.

Third: some modelers dont like using other people's work, and would rather make their own stuff.

yea, i didnt look at the polycount, the permissions are in the model .zip and i know about the using ur own work but just wanted to give this to u all incase sombody wanted it

I use those models to make my skins for my vehicles (I give proper credit, don't worry), but to try and convert those to usable models for a game, there's just no way. In most cases you need to get rid of about 90 % of the poly's, sometimes more.
