* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Countless examples, but most notably what happens when you throw your rig into reverse. Your truck will gradually accelerate faster and faster as you hold the reverse button - ''way'' beyond the 60 miles per hour limit of going forward. After ''almost an hour'' of holding that button down, you will eventually reach the golden speed of '''12.3 undecillion''' (1.23E37) miles per hour. To put this in perspective, the speed of light in a vacuum is only 671 million miles per hour. If you were travelling at the top speed a truck in the game can reverse, you could cross the entire known universe in under 160 picoseconds (and [[ApocalypseHow destroy it]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom as well]]). And yet, your truck will ''stop on a dime'' if you lift your finger off the reverse button at any point in your dimension-killing faster-than-light backwards trucking adventure.

** You absolutely ''cannot lose''. Even if you download the patch to make the opponent rig move, it still stops short of the finish line. If it did somehow cross it, it would crash the game (or sometimes do nothing at all) because ''there is no programmed failure state.''
