Clutch is one of weirdest thing in Mudrunner. When I slowly release clutch, vehicle WONT accelerate at all! Vehicles dont work like that! On flat surface (no mud!) car should slowly accelerate! While in mudrunner it shakes like possessed and stall!
I drowe at least 3 different cars and I know how damn car works. Mudrunner is weird in clutch operation mechanics. Not close to reality at all.
Shifting gears have no meaning in Mudrunner. Real cars with gearbox need it to gain max speed but in Mudrunner gears have no torque. I can go from 1st to 5th gear in most trucks without changing gears becasue their only difference is max speed so moving vehicle on flat road slightly by using 1st gear then switching to highest gear allow it to gain max speed faster. In real gearbox that would be impossible thats why they have all other gears between! I am amazed how simplified Mudrunner mechanics are in those terms.
