* Travel on the regular highways. Taking into consideration the road and traffic conditions, safely and smoothly overtake. Use caution! The heavier your cargo is, the slower your acceleration and braking.

* Hit the cars to get a three second Time Bonus.

* Drive behind other large trucks to enter their slipstream, increasing your trucks acceleration and top-speed. (Slip-Stream) will be displayed on the screen.

* Better turns : Instead of turning the wheel sharply and going into a skid, try slightly turning the wheel with the turn. Braking will not be necessary because you will not be skidding off the road.
* Shifting : For Highway Cat and Stream Line, shift up when at about 50 mph.
