- Favourite Truck
Bit of research has uncovered why :p Mercedes-Benz Trucks, Freightliner, Western Star, Fuso and BharatBenz (Specialises in the indian truck market) are all owned by the Daimler, hence why the cascadia's have the same steering wheel as the MP3 Actros, and the new Western Star has the same steering wheel as the MP4 ActrosIts got the same steering wheel as the Merc MP4, just without the merc badge :p
Yeah, the thing that annoys me about the sloped hood american trucks is that you just cannot see where your front end is!That's one of the only American Style "Slope-hood" trucks I like. I'm usually one for the straight blocks like the 379 or the W900(/L) but this is actually quite nice.
Well I'm pretty good at judging where my front end, front right corner etc. are on a European truck, don't know yet if I'll be good at that with American trucks.If you're a good driver, you don't need to see where the front end is...
I'd rather see what's infront of me.
We might get marker lights on the front of trucks as customization accessoires (like the marker lights on the front of the truck in Daramin's signature).Well I'm pretty good at judging where my front end, front right corner etc. are on a European truck, don't know yet if I'll be good at that with American trucks.
