    Before I watched the video I thought he was going to turn into a crossover or u turn thing that the state police use....

    Which would be bad . But to go 4 wheeling with the ground not frozen over that swale is insane .

    Looks like he got owned by ATC. Need to turn off ATC if you want to keep the power in mud or it will just de-rate the motor down to nothing to keep the wheels from spinning.
