I use a j spec Volvo with 500hp and it copes fine most the time as long as you shift down to the correct gear at the correct time

What about J-Spec heavy haul? Does it count despite failing to meet the engine requirements?

 

I guess it does. I doubt we'll reach the author to update the rules, though.

8x4 is definitely a specialty truck through and through, so if the primary loads taken are 50-60 tons a high HP engine is a must. A 30-40 tons load could slip by with a 12L engine.  Also, having beacons in some way would be a must.

something like this, minus the V8 paint job (and front flaps/rock guard if it's not for like forest/off road use) could fit the role

J-Spec is supposed to be a representation of about 95% of the trucks you see on European roads. The rules drawn up for J-Spec pretty much insure your truck falls into that catagory. Now just because your truck is a special transport truck does not mean it is not a realistic representation of a real life truck. It just means that truck falls into the 5% catagory that is not J-Spec.

I think if 8x4 truck in game is similar to real life, it can be regarded as compatible with J-Spec. For example look at my in game truck below.

Here's my simple J-Spec Scania Streamline.

It uses 440HP Euro 6 engine, was detuned to 360HP for a challenge. Already driving it for around 40k miles and it surprisingly economical and packs a punch.
