    best bet is to wait until you have either paid off the bank, or have more than enough for the garage, truck and the bank. That way your 3rd driver is nothing but profit.

    55 is a rare treat, usually end up holding the accelerator on max shifting through gears to get out of 45. :P

    well bank is 4k a day...i still have about 220 to pay off, and the two drivers i have now bring in about 5k a day on average so they are paying the bank in effect. once i can afford garage, truck and driver ill get them, as i can still do the very big jobs to boost cash if needed

    One thing I hope they are looking at doing is paying back faster, IE if you have the money available, you just pay it off. Would be nice. Wonder if someone can mod it!

    Know that feeling. I normally try and get it to 55-60mph and stick on CC,

    Who's using manual, Basic or Full Auto?

    Manual here, but may switch up to D shift as I am losing fuel through bad gear changes and such like.

    yes. the fact i have just over 100k in the bank yet owe just over 200, it'd be nice to pay a large chunk off rather than wait each day for 4k to come out. it'd be much more flexible than daily payments or all of it only

    Soon as you have the money accrued to pay it off, do so. Nothing worse than having the bank on your back for defaulting!

    *edit* should add, I am now at 2 garages in every country (except luxembourg), 3 drivers in each (on average), pulling in £7k per job (£4 after their pay, fuel etc).

    so i'm assuming there comes a point like that when you can just drive without having to carry a load, just explore without money worries

    In theory I could do that now, the drivers pay for themselves, I could hire more drivers and buy more trucks if I wanted, but so far just doing short trips in Germany. Payout over time is oddly better than the longer journeys!

    i think as and when i get the garage it'll definitely be in germany and i'll probably relocate myself there as i enjoy the german/austria runs. if i get a chance tonight i'll do a couple more bigger runs (30k) to get the cash past 200k then get the garage and move myself there.
    then when it comes time to buy another truck i'll look at a better one for me, and my current one will go to the new driver. at the mo i have 3 entry level scania's, with mine having the engine/transmission upgraded a bit.

    make sure you have the fuel economy engines, think the max level one adds 8 or 9% fuel efficiency. Add that with the fuel efficiency level ups, you are looking at huge savings
