Improved truck physics v1.0

- Mod adds more realistic and hard physics for ATS trucks;
- It is now more difficult to drive a truck, "feel" of the truck is increased;
- Changed driver body movement physics, which is now less static;
- Added five new modes for windshield wipers of Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks to match real life prototypes (four intermittment modes, one long, one short);
- Lots of changes was made in truck behavior:
1. Changed cabin weight to more realistic value;
2. Changed brake efficiency: less overall effectiveness an less effectiveness at low speed (but higher upper margin of "low speed"). Increased max. brakes temperature, increased warm up/cool down rates;
3. Decreased steering wheel angle/speed resistance. Decreased truck turning ability at high speed. Increased truck turning ability at low speed;
4. Increased rotational wheel resistance and air resistance. Also increased inertia - slower acceleration and stopping;
5. Added roll angle to fifth wheel;
6. Increased chassis suspension travel values for vanilla trucks;
7. Increased damping force for truck/trailer suspensions;
8. Added tyres slip possibility. Tyres less rigid now;
9. Increased flywheel resistance - RPM drops faster, when not in gear;
10. Increased intensity of engine braking - truck slow downs faster, when truck is not given throttle;
11. Decreased clutch strength.

Installation instructions:
1.Extract scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ATS;
2.Open in-game mod manager and enable "Improved truck physics" mod;
