Default Benefits of DIG

There are multiple benefits to adding DIG to you rig, but one of the main ones is the reduced turning radius. I put together a quick video demonstrating this with the three different modes of DIG operation, using my Vanquish VS4-10 Origin.

Nice. I'm planning on converting my Bomber to a Wraith transmission in order to install a dig.

I use dig to heat the front tires up, shift the front end over and as hardcore descent control in super technical crawling.

Also driving around and playing dumb as people wonder why my rear tires are broken lol

In this case it has the Vanquish 3-gear transmission, and the Vanquish external dig unit.

The Axial wraith transmission can have dig added internally, and has roughly the same footprint as the above two units combined.
