The Pilot blew everyone away at Uhwarrie National Park this past weekend!
Thanks! I am always working to improve my content!BTW, you keep upping your game, not just with the Pilot itself, but also nice editing and music, especially in the intro.
Love that your secret advantage, besides VTM-4, etc. is all that enthusiastic bio-ballast in the back.
The fun thing about this wet/muddy day is that traction was the weak link for most rigs. I truly believe my skinny 32" Mud terrain tires (235-85-16 Yokohama Geolandar G003s) where the perfect tire for the conditions. They cut through the surface clay and found traction when most were just spinning on the surface. At the end of the day though, that wouldn't' have mattered if the Pilot couldn't get the power where it was needed. And VTM-4 came through and really proved itself. You could easily tell who didn't have a rear locker and everyone could see the Pilot did (I know it is a clutch based system)I'll be looking forward to watching this video when I get home from work. Your Pilot is an excellent example of how capable this platform is.
Now realistically, the Pilot's ceiling is much lower than an Xterras... they can get larger lifts for cheaper, can fit larger tires and were available with factory rear lockers and have more options for front/rear lockers. Oh yea, and a low range transfer case as well.
BUT, that Xterra didn't have you driving and you've proven yourself as a very capable driver off road. That's worth as much or more than all of the go-anywhere hardware you put on a vehicle.
Lesson learned is Cooper AT3s are good AT tires but no match for a dedicated MT tire in the wet slippery clay/mud. The Xterra makes a good off road rig as it has the solid rear axle and transfer case with 4LO so it was handicapped by the tires.Yeah he is working on it, but his Cooper Discovery AT3s are almost new. Thanks for the watch!
Definitely handicapped. They were new tires too!Lesson learned is Cooper AT3s are good AT tires but no match for a dedicated MT tire in the wet slippery clay/mud. The Xterra makes a good off road rig as it has the solid rear axle and transfer case with 4LO so it was handicapped by the tires.
Thanks for the offer! My wife and I have a die cutter too, but
Yeah that part was crazy, I couldn't believe it when I fist saw it!Honda clearly dominated. I like at the 32 second mark when it slid and then it ran over a tree stump but just kept going.
