    did a 1300 mile one over the weekend. think it was bratislava to liverpool. all went fine, even managed to get a return trip job.....not so well.....95mph and trying to barrel round the corners didnt work, ended up with 95% damage, to the point the engine wouldn't start at all!
    34k to fix it, but good times.
    i'm now up to 3 garages, my main one upgraded to 5 slots with 4 taken. oldest drivers now getting roughly 10k a job. took out another 320k loan to do all this, including getting all volvo trucks for everyone. only 1 day in from that loan and have made over 100k, so it'll be paidoff a lot sooner this time.

    I noticed that 3pts Long Distance gives jobs that the GPS claims I can't make with a rest stop but I beat the GPS and my rest counter every time if I don't screw up. I get the trailer parked with about 20-40mins left to rest.

    Also playing hard mode. Manual gears, UK cab, no UI mirrors. Aside from still playing guess the speed limit, I now have the extra distraction of a massive blind spot on my left unless I turn the camera. KERRRUNCH!

    I went from a manual to a Auto. And there an opition to change how it changes gears. (instead of changing at 1200rpm it changers nearer 2000rpm) Im now doing 60L to 100miles now

    How does it handle hillclimbing though? I find when my speed drops I start downgearing, along with downhill parts where I use the gears to help slow down.

    It's also more fun with manual, so much potential to screw up, it's another game mechanic to manage.

    Not had a any problems with hillclimbing, There needs to be some sort of override with the auto to force a drop down. (kickdown?) if i stop on a hill it dosnt like it as it drops it stight in to 2nd.
