It's called realism. Have you ever been in a truck pulling over 100,000 lbs? it pulls away slow.
The thing about the top speed, I think the speed is realistic and the speedometers are off. Or something like that.... because it doesn't seem like you're going as slow as the speedometer says. You guys are being way too hard on the game, this a big step step in graphics and physics compared to GTS. They even fixed truck sliding.
Sure, but I do believe a regular roadtrain can reach speeds higher than 45 miles per hour..
Well smartass, have you played the game? I hardly think you did, because alot of curves in the game if you go over 40 is pushing it. So what would be the point of doing 70? play again with one of the smaller trucks, like a water truck or something, and tell me you can't go over 45. If you say you can't, I call BS.
Ok guys heres a little info , i just tryed the wheels and it worked just gotta sort the dds thou or you can map it to the original , but all i did was put the Original pmd and wheels_road2 tobj back in afterwards then i opened hex editor and read the original pmd so i could get the automat file which u then open copie it all then go back to your wheel folder open your wheels_road2.dif_spec.mat and paste it in there thats what ive done for the trucks as well and they worked so far I no there has to be a easierway but thats how ive figured it out so far i hope this helps .
Well, my big question is why no truck will go over 50mph? The bigger trucks, with a proper semi-trailer, won't do more than 40mph and does not know the meaning of the word acceleration. What's with the slowing down of everything? Lower top speed, slower acceleration, weaker breaks
I went over 50 mph with a roadtrain just 10 mins ago
Oh, come on... When a game accelerates too much and trucks are too fast, forum is full of posts about that topic. Now you can't do truck-racing, and the forum is full of posts talking about "low speed"... w*f is this?
First, this is supposed to be a truck simulation game, so if you want speed go play DiRT or RnR. Besides, if you push the accelerator and keep the truck in the road, you can get to high speeds for current truck/road ratio. So I don't see the point for so much complains about the speed.
Me, I just downloaded the "unlimited time" mod and started enjoying the game driving at LOW speed (like real trucks do), even stoping at gas stations for resting or buying a coke. I don't need to do 60mph on a dirt road.

Agree, listen to tunes while driving the outback. Actually, like this ET2 Austraila map actually its more realstic to me because it rural setting and the lack of cars of the roads. Austrailain outback almost feels like driving in the Dakotas with open areas and small little towns ya drive thru.

you need to create a new sub-folder in the C:\Programs main game folder named base...then open that folder and create another sub-folder named map...if you don't, the game has nowhere to put the saves and it crashes...
