Re: Fun in the mud

Canis,
I learned the last couple of times when mudding, is to put the front in at a slow pace, then when the wheels feel like they are losing, then hit the gas. I used to just gun it when going to a hole. The mud holes we run usually are fully of water. So after learning and watching, it is best to go in a little slowly at first, because the intitial splash down will kill your engine, if you are not setup correctly. Believe me it has happened. And i have seen people just completely kill the engine by hydrolocking it. Very bad.
