Tradewind EPA-Traktor 1.0

A Swedish type of vehicle called EPA-Traktor.

    What is an EPA-Traktor?
    It's a vehicle most common in Sweden that allows 16 year olds to drive a car-like vehicle using just an AM license. But there are drawbacks ofcourse. You are not allowed to go faster than 30 km/h but the "car" is allowed to have a higher top speed than 30 km/h. The cabin space must not be large, only allowing 2-4 passangers depending on front seating. Also you're not allowed to have any sort of rear suspension and you need a LGF (Långsamt Gående Fordon) sign on the rear. You aren't allowed to build EPA-Trakors anymore but you're allowed to drive them. They have been replaced now by something called an A-Traktor.

    I used a different method of making an LGF sign this time, the positive being it no longer requires a red bonnet, the drawback being it glows whenever you brake. I avoided using mods within Automation this way.



    This is my second one of these, I got enough requests to make another one so I did. With this one being more fun to drive and a different style to the traditional boxy ones.

    It has 3 gears, 1st limited to 30km/h, 2nd to 58 km/h and 3rd to 102 km/h.
    Inline 4 turbocharged engine, rear wheel drive and a lockable differential to aid sliding about.
    (Making it accurate to a real life EPA-Traktor is impossible within Automation itself so this is the closest I could get with the model year chosen.)

    Here's the old one (keep in mind that it actualy is old and I'm probably not going to update it) https://www.beamng.com/resources/edlund-245-epa-traktor.5002/

    (It also may or may not have a slight resemblance to a Volkswagen Passat, which may or may not be intentional)
