How to go faster
How do I go faster in this game because I got a new truck that has max speed and max breaks (just in case I have to stop very hard, it costed me $5.000) but still I can't go faster than about 50 mph and in real life everyone goes 100! That's really fast!

Well when you're hauling something, you obviously go slower because it's heavy. But if you're not hauling anything then you will go faster. And in the game the max speed you grab go is about 70-75mph. And in real life people don't go 100 mph unless they want to get arrested

If your wanting to go faster in the game 18 Wheels of steel American long haul this involves you changing the engine values in the Base. Scs file you can open it using winrar, open the base.scs file with winrar then go to base.scs\def\economy\template_accessories and drag and drop the engine.sii file over to another new folder of your choosing. open it with wordpad and look for what ever engine your wanting to use and then double the torque value, HP, andall other numerical values of that engine and then save over existing Engine.sii file.
Delete the Engine.sii file from the place you pulled it from in theBase.scs in the winrar then drag and drop the new edited engine.sii file you just changed the values on to the open file location in the base.scs winrar if it ask's for you for a compression type always select storage and hit ok and close the base.scs file and run your game then load your game. once loaded you'll need to go to a service station to get the new engine as the engine currently in your truck will have the original engine values and your all set. I currently drive a KW900(9w9) and it does 1120 MPH with a full load with no issues. and has a 0 - 60 in about 4 seconds ratio. I pass all the car's like their sitting still so enjoy
