I drive a scania R490 and also enjoy it a lot more than an R730 or a Volvo 750. I drive at the server limit on motorways.

I drive a DAF 105  I only use EU1 and i drive flat out mostly everywhere except in built up areas or places of high popularity like EP which i avoid like the plague if i can help it. Forgot to add on the rare occasion i use SP i use my Scania 143M V8 which i tend to drive sensibly as the old girl doesnt like cornering too fast lol.

At this time I drive a J-Spec DAF XF Euro 6, 460 HP 6x2/4 midlift. 50 km/h in cities, 70 km/h in secondary roads and 80 km/h at motorways. Very fun to drive :D

I've added a new question the the poll. 

 

What distance do you prefer to drive? (Multiple choice available) 

 

Make sure to delete your vote if you've already voted, in order to answer all 3 votes again. I've voted for all distances, because i look at which city the cargo has to be taken to. It really depends on my mood.

I drive a 580 hp engine mainly to be able to pull heavier hauls without it taking ages to get to a reasonable speed. 

On smaller roads I drive between 70 and 90, it all depends on the road itself. On freeways I usually do a 100. 

I always do longer hauls if I have the time otherwise I do the ones I think I have time to do.

Driving a 460 hp in all trucks. A reason why I drive a 460 hp on the Volvo FH is that that's the only engine with Euro 6 and of course in convoys 730hp Scania or 750hp DAF. :)

I drive differently in Multiplayer then I do in Singleayer.

In Singleplayer I drive realistically and drive by the speed limit at all times and drive three modded trucks that have a 425hp engine.

But in Multiplayer, I'm a bit of a speed freak and drive as fast as the speed limiter will allow me to go in Cities (60kmh), and drive between 100-110kmh on highways and country roads (depending on how sharp the corners are and how busy it is), and I drive a Mercedes Actros MP4 that has the highest horsepower available (625hp I think it is).

I am driving a actros with taglift atm I am ether just under or just over 500hp (i can not remember without looking) I try to sit at the speed limit for the roads or under it if the trailer is a 70 limited one (construction trailers) I try not to rush as there is no point

 

I fi am running solo between yards then i do get a bit of a lead foot but as a rule I enjoy the drive but I find alot of the hills (on off ramps) are very steep (steeper than I think you would find in RL) so that i why i use a mid to high HP engine

It all depends on what I'm driving. I have a few j specs which I drive and a few OP trucks which I also drive. So I opted for the 500-600, since it's in the middle.

Speed, I do tend to go all out (15 year old from Leeds. What do you expect? :P), but I do know how to use the brake pedal ;). I tend to be a bit more aggressive with speed in the 700+HP trucks.

Distance, I prefer to actually go intercity for my jobs. Jobs within the same city are boooring :D

Interesting results..

 

Most people drive (Who've voted of course) prefer the 400-500 engine, followed by 500-600 engine, then 700-750. Most of you guys like to drive the speedlimit, 110km/u. Also most of you prefer longest distances. 

 

Question: Since most of you guys like to drive the speedlimit of 110 km/h, would you drive 120 if the speedlimit was set at that, or even higher? Because in my opinion 110 is very fast.

Hey,

My old Actros is 476 HP. I drive 90km/h both on freeway and roads. I therefore rarely overtake others but I am very often overtaken by trucks and feel in those moments a little bit stressed looking at my mirrors like a psychopath. Hopefully since I have been playing I notice that players are more and more careful with others.
