    It hasnt been updated for the 0.23/0.24 PBR textures, when it is, that texture issue will be fixed

    Any word on torque reactions like the T-Series?
    The current version of the truck staying perfectly flat on take-off seems unnatural. I wanna see that chassis twist and front-left wheel lift up

    does happen when you have a very heavy trailer, and a very powerful engine. put the t600 turbocharger and try it out

    Copy that. If that’s the case, it’s pretty weak for a truck of that class. Currently sitting in the cab of a Scania G500 with 68.5 tonnes behind it, and even it wants to cock a wheel when it’s empty

    its also noticeable with the dunptruck version of it too, it doesnt flex much with stock config though

    also, The G500 has a 500hp engine i assume? (and a load of torque)

    Rightio I’ll take a closer look next time
    Roughly 500hp which isn’t enough. Also doesn’t have enough torque, or enough gears. Also incredibly unreliable. Do not recommend using a Scania for a Kenworth’s job

    Jbeam will be overhauled if we ever get to revamp. For now it will stay as is.
    Invest in a V8 :p

    Well, Scanias around here are made to pull 74 tons daily. In the other hand, most Kenworths only pull 36 tons. Even the European Paccar's son, the DAF XF, is tougher lol

    *enter india* with trucks with i6 turbo engines, with, uhh, enough? horsepower and torque, carrying well over 80-90 tons lmao

    though, most of them are slow as hell.

    I respect the minerals in the metal that those engines are made out of. It is incredible. Unsafe, but incredible.

    if we're looking at TATA trucks, well, https://tatatrucks.tatamotors.com/t...lers/tata-signa-5525s-4x2/specifications.aspx ,
    the tippers might have more, im not sure, but they use the Cummins ISb 5.4l engines, around 950nm of torque, which, for hauling the amount of stuff they do, uhh, good luck reaching 40kph.

    Many smaller/older trucks here also have relatively underpowered engines that haul waaaay too much than they should. It looks cool but I'd rather have stuff properly done tbh

    If only Scania made a low-roof v8 that would fit in the loading silo
    --- Post updated ---
    In Australia we have strict axle-mass limitations to prevent road damage. More weight means more axles. We have C509 Kenworth’s pulling ~140 tonnes in the mines. Unfortunately it’s the complexity of European trucks that lets them down

    Around here its almost the same. a 6x4 semi can pull any trailer up to 6 axles. Usually we have 3+3 B-doubles and 2+2+2 Turnpike doubles. With 23t of GCWR for the truck (6t in the front and 8,5t on each of its rear axles) and 8,5t on each of the trailers axles, we are allowed to go up tot 74t in public roads (for some time, there were discussions about allowing the 3+2+3 Turnpike doubles, with 91t of GCWR), also, the minimum power required is 5.71 PS per ton, so, a 423 PS truck is the minimum allowed to pull 74t (I've seen Scanias R440 pulling those trailers, and its sad). There is a logging company here that uses a Volvo FMX 540 pulling 6 trailers (B-double style) reaching 200t of GCWR, 52 meters long, and reaching up to 60 km/h.

    Considering that in Brazil, ALL American brands failed (the most successful was Ford, but it used euro styled and Brazilian designed and built trucks, the Cargo, that stopped being built and sold here in 2019), mainly by poor reliability and high maintenance costs, I'm forced to say that european trucks are better suited for our market, because they are, apparently, a lot tougher.

    Is the R series with a flat/low roof not available in Australia?

    You can get a R series with a low roof up to 770 hp with a Euro 6 engine or 730 hp with a Euro 5 engine
