One of the main advantages of CarSim is that it is so much simpler to use than most people expect. However, you may be able to speed the learning process by attending a training course. Mechanical Simulation is pleased to offer classes at the introductory and advanced levels. CarSim and TruckSim are very similar in structure, so CarSim training is therefore applicable to using TruckSim.
