    Pretty self explanatory, are you expecting similar to GSC but with trucks?

    How long are the races normally? How do you think they will handle?

    (I'm trying to kill time)

    I'm expecting quite a steep learning curve at the beginning to try and learn how these handle. There is no doubt in my mind it will be a great Sim as usual from Reiza :D

    I'm presuming these are limited to 100mph/160kph as per the racing trucks in the UK? I'm guess that is the only 'aid' as such...

    I'm not sure if they're restricted because afaik these trucks were designed to be racing whereas British and other racing trucks were converted to race :unsure:

    Interesting :O_o: Do they reach that speed regularly or is their top speed lower than that ? :)

    They hit it a fair bit. I think it's more of a safety feature.

    I'm sure someone will come up with a mod soon enough to disable - that's if we're brave enough :roflmao:

    The 160km/h limit is from the European Truck Racing Championship, i dont think that the Formula Truck has the same limit.

    category actually has a radar on a point on the track where the maximum speed must be 160 Km / h above that speed you take a drive thru.

    I believe it is difficult to make a radar system to punish when going over 160 Km / h in sections demarcated radar but who knows reiza surprised and create this system that really is to prevent a major accident at the end of a line

    Been a big Formula Truck fan for a while now (purely through watching highlight videos on youtube which I don't understand :laugh: ), and I'm in no doubt that this will be a fantastic game. I definitely agree with Kevin that they will take a while to get used to. In terms of the specifics of their handling, I reckon the key to driving them quick will be to get comfortable with sliding them out of the corner with so much power going to the rear tires. Can't wait!

    According to those same videos is seems that sliding the cars into a corner seems the best way to brake :)

    I'm also expecting a lot of contact..... Maybe not intentional but contact all the same.

    I'm sitting at the back... :)

    Yeah, I'm with you there! My strategy will be to let the field sort things out early and then work my way up front.

    What am I expecting? . . . FUN!

    YOU ARE DOING PRETTY GOOD!!!!

    Couldn't it be handled like a pit limiter?

    As far as I'm aware, it is a built in limiter. I guess that they have speed checks on case some teams try to exceed the limits. Cheaty gits!

    A great simulator. I love that feeling on corners, skidmarks and contact.... a lot of them all the cornes like on real life.

    Sometimes would be nice fire on engineering like this video bellow.
