Truck tires

Dont make a difrence for us but what about DOT lol

As long as it's the same size and type (radial/ bias ply) it shouldn't make a difference. A tire is a tire, it won't care which wheel/position it is in.

Truck repairs

Hey thanks man i by passed it to see and she starts right up so the switch it is. Thanks for ur help

The clutch switch is a pretty common thing that will act up on Cascadia models. Cavity C of the clutch switch is the common ground. Cavity A is the start enable wire 15k. Just try jumping those 2 next time truck will not start, if truck will start, then that means your clutch switch is bad. If you have to replace clutch switch, you will have to remove the 4 torx screws on the outside firewall and pull clutch pedal thru the exterior hole there, to gain access to replace the clutch switch.

When it comes to the simulator... its not like a truck. it makes some people dizzy because theres no real motion and the angles on the side are kind of weird. When backing it reacts very quick, make small turns of the wheel.

the depth perception isnt great either.

I believe since you havent been with a trainer yet youll get a list of tasks you have to complete such as shifting, turning, stopping, downshifting etc.

if you see an animal step on the fuel they literally would rather you speed up than slam on the brakes when it comes to hitting an animal on it. If it says your on an decline the jake is stronger than most jokes and will slow you down a lot, if you even need to use it.

It basically just sees if youre getting the basic concepts down.

Now its really all simple and not a big deal at all, make sure you dont call it a video game!

Thanks i will put a post up about it and my run with the simulater later on tonight thanks
