    hi,

    So I’m new to this and I am trying to get the Class 43 up to speed but it seems to be slow. I can get it quicker by starting the rear engine and putting the reverser into reverse then going back to the front to drive it but then I’m unable to stop it using normal brakes.

    Does anyone have any tips/suggestions?

    Thanks

    It's certainly not slow for me: 20190108204540_1.jpg
    Class 43 has a very long gearing that allows it to reach high speeds, but it also means that it has a very slow acceleration. You shouldn't have to turn on the second engine to drive quickly. The brakes are working as they should. It's just the fact that the second engine is pumping air into the brake circuit because it's brake handle is set to release so the first engine is unable to depressurize it.

    make sure the rear cab is shut down and the parking brake is released.
