2021 RMAX4 1000
You are the RMAX rock crawling king! I really enjoyed watching those. Definitely confidence inspiring as DirtRoadWarrior said. Love the fact that your putting footage like that out there in an RMAX for the world to see. Keep em coming man.Rmax does the famed Pritchett Canyon in Moab. The toughest trail Moab has to offer, outside of area BFE which is private! We were told by by different parties we talked to before the trip that it would be mandatory to have 1-2 straps attached to the cage at numerous places in the canyon with other people holding the machines to prevent tipping over. Some videos we watched certainly showed that while others didn’t. Some videos showed people winching on all 3 of the worst obstacles. Rocker Knocker, Chewy, and Axle Hill.
Unfortunately I had to pull the rope on Rocker Knocker. The obstacle I wanted to get done more than anything. We had 5 jeeps waiting on us we didn’t want to hold up to long and it had rained the night before and was lightly snowing. I was last to go of 4 UTVs and the rock was wet with mud from the 3 previous cars. I was a whisper away from pulling it off 3 times but finally decided to winch to get out of the jeeps way. I’m confident on dry ground I’ll get it done so a redemption run of the canyon will be in order. In watching the video clips it appears it probably would have got it done that day if it was stock width. One of the times added width may have been a hindrance.
We didn’t do any video of the Sauce Pot but it proved to be an easy task for the Rmax and with its shorter wheelbase it handled it best in our group.
There is so little content out there on the Rmax vs other machines that in research of a trip I often wonder, can the Rmax do that. I often have to find out for myself. It’s nice to see another machine of the same type do it before hand for confidence because when you get there these obstacles are flat intimidating in person the first time you roll up to them.
I hope some of these vids give confidence to others that decide they may want to try some of these tough trails. More often than not when I watch our own content and that of people we watched before the trip, the Rmax and KRX with wet clutch’s do just about everything smoother and easier than the videos we see where tires are spinning like crazy all the time and people are on 3 wheels. A lot of these videos out there present ACTION and make it look worse than it has to be. I find our clips to be boring in comparison much of the time LOL.
