Different gears and wheel configurations


Guest

Question

Hi all,

So whilst driving with my friend the other day we both took off from a city to deliver our goods and I noticed he managed to accelerate a lot quicker than I did. Why is this the case if I have 12 gears and he has 6? We were both driving the same truck with the same engine. Is it possible the wheel configuration on the truck could make a also difference?

Thanks!

6 gears are better for sure than 12 gear, at least for me and i'll explain below why.

 

1. Better optimization for low and medium cargoes up to 24T (haven't tested yet with higher tonnes)

2. Much faster acceleration

3. Much easier to use and control gears in many situations

4. Doesn't need that 1 second time to change between gears like on 12+ do, it just still goes forward like you are still in the same gear

 

I am using 6 manual gearbox on almost every truck and it really feels faster than 12 gear so i recommend you take manual instead of automatic.
