Nopes, the reason is different. IRL we have a functionality called "take off fender top" or "push the liftable axle into the fender top". So basically you either have the top of the fender removed, or you accept the fact that your tires will slightly push into the inner part of the fender. (Fenders are usually fairly elastic so no issues there). In game it's only possible to remove fender tops on few selected trucks, at least for now, so no easy fixes there, yet. Also, pushing wheel into fender is only viable if you have a regular tire size, or smaller than regular (this is typical for Finnish setups, where the tag axle is fitted with smaller wheels). In game this does result with clipping. And that is the issue that SCS wishes to avoid I assume.Some newbie driver wrote: ↑02 Aug 2020 09:26Then my question is what makes that contact to don't happen IRL between fenders and wheels. If everything would have the correct size, SCS shouldn't have to raise the fenders in the models to avoid clipping. Either something has not the correct size or the level between the axle and the chassis is different than IRL (that's why I though that maybe could be related with adjustable suspension and asked about it).
Because no matter how hard you try you will not explain to people that they have to remove fender top for liftable axle. (the only chassis without such issue is 4x2 for obvious reasons)
And yes, I can 100% confirm the issue will be there. I have modified my Premium to have the fenders in 1:1 correct position to real truck. Those fenders cause no issues with a regular 6x4, but they do clip with lifted axles. (mind you, with regular size tires, the clipping is barely noticeable)
To conclude, while I somewhat understand SCS's decision to raise the fenders, I think that with current progress they have made on truck models, they should just give us the option of removing fender tops and put them fenders in their correct height, it would make a lot more sense than the current "solution" that causes even bigger and more obvious issue.
As for which truck will come and when... the answers are:
