Pretty cool video, don't know who he is but I wouldn't do it!
Still looks to be about 45 degrees?Yup, I posted this in the other thread. If you stop it at about 0:45-47 and tilt so that dead tree stands straight up, its a lot less angle. Still a very impressive climb for a stock wolverine. I talk to this guy a little bit, said he had just got it from the dealer and took it out riding.
Seen some other videos that are the same, lose traction in 2WD , slide back, then when they bite its all over.Looks like his static stability would have been fine there.
Too bad about that dynamic stability going backwards.
Not being in AWD there was a big mistake.
I rolled down one backwards myself a few months back. That first roll is not too bad. But I didn't like the ones after that.
We didn't end up in the hot tubs so I can't say much about them but The Launch Pad isn't anything. My buddy on his Grizzly 700 didn't even have an issue so I can't see any SxS having an issue. We actually didn't realize we did "The Launch Pad" until after we did it. We did a lot more of the named obstacles then we realized at first. We do a lot of rock crawling and hill climbs here in MO so having the added traction of Moab makes everything seem that much easier. I'm ready to go back already! lolSeen some other videos that are the same, lose traction in 2WD , slide back, then when they bite its all over.
Gotta admit the fear of this has kept me out of the Hot Tubs in Moab.
Even videos of The Launch Pad on Golden Spike trail looks awful steep. Maybe MrDwig can speak to that.
