Raise your wheels!


In a recent blog post we have hinted at one neat feature that is coming with the 1.14 update for Euro Truck Simulator 2- tag-lift truck axles.

We have expanded the mix of available chassis for purchase from three to six. Chassis 6x2, 6x2/4 received tag-lift versions. It is not just a cosmetic visual gimmick, the physical properties of the vehicle do change with a lifted axle.

With appropriate chassis, you will be able to raise or lower the truck axle on demand with default key "U".  Naturally, the lifted wheels don't take any wear over time.

In the future we intend to make tyre wear a larger portion of the gameplay that affects player's economy. In addition to that, lifting axles don't have to be restricted for trucks only but apply to trailers axles as well.
