            MMMBeer and Cal fail at tip #36

            Tip # 36: Don’t spin to win. Try not to let the tires spin, which means that they have lost
            traction. Ease off the throttle and let the tires regain traction. Don’t bounce your rig
            either if you want it to get home in one piece.

              Disagree. Just b/c someone wrote it, don't make it so.

              Wheel spin to dry and heat your tires works. Also to hunt for traction when hung up. Slow is the way to go, but sometimes the skinny pedal is needed. Is it a risk? Of course it is. If the tires grab traction suddenly that energy has to go somewhere and if it's not forward movement, it'll be the weak link in your drive train. But when you're hung up sometimes you go for it. David and I both made the exit of Ingrids by nothing other than luck and heavy skinny pedal while working the steering. Tim was spotting. When my Jeep decided to go, it was in the exact same spot it wouldn't a moment b4. Regardless....made the obstacle and didn't break...both luck!

              That said...very light throttle and 'hunting for traction" is exactly how I broke my u-joints on the YJ's D30. ...twice... So...equipment counts. And maybe a lil experience with what not to do (steering angles).

              Bouncing. If you mean when the jeep starts dry humping the obstacle...ya...no good. If ya mean back of off and hit it somewhere between Al and Cal... I didn't know there was any other way to wheel!!!

                As slow as possible, as fast as necessary.

                  , I'm envisioning Al and Cal standing on either side of the right line like a goalpost. It's okay to bounce off the posts, as long as you still go in between them in the end it's worth points!

                      When in doubt throttle out. Works every time.

                          Good advice. I relate with the "As slow as possible, as fast as necessary".
