    When it got muddy, I just ran it through a few puddles and that cleaned it up pretty good.

    I took it through something similar to that. The water in the mud puddle was up to the middle of the windows on the cab of the Summit. Unfortunately, it did get stuck, ripped up grass wrapped itself around the axle, and I ended up going in after it to get it out. I also broke the rear diff in the process. The electronics held up fine, but I suggest giving up once you are good and stuck. Spinning the tires with the diff's locked will just break them.

    Why would you be spinning the tires with the diffs locked??

    This places unnecessary strain on the diffs and will lead to breakage, also in a 1:1.

    I have a feeling that there will be a lot of breakage at first while people pound on their Summits. It'll be a learning curve for all of us, myself included. I hope I don't break anything, but, let's be honest, it'll happen. I just need to treat it like I do my 1:1, like it costs $11k and I can't afford to be without it.
    I don't have a witty signature.

    most of the stuff it made to be bashed HARD on the summit, but there are other things that are delicate and you need..like your 1:1 the T-lock is about the only thing that i would say needs to be babied
