Dude, that is some awesome trail riding/hiking area. Wish I had terrain that wasn't completely covered in snow. And the cave, there are no words to describe the coolness factor for taking an rc. At least for me anyways. lol

After looking at all these, I have decided that Alaska needs twice as many summer months. I need to go hit the local switch back trails with my crawler. Not to mention some farther away mountain trails.

Trucktrial, este es uno de los mejores temas de todo el foro, muy inspiracional . Es increible lo que has logrado, y eso me motiva para hacer algo similar, aunque a menor escala en las montanias de Arizona, el lugar donde vivo. Tengo tu website ya en mi lista de favoritos. Lastima que Traxxas no ha sabido reconocer tus logros; si yo fuera uno de ellos te regalaria uno nuevo y partes gratis de por vida para que las evaluaras en tus viajes! Saludos!

It seems that someone from the Marketing Dpt. Of Traxxas liked too, but recently changed their mind and thought it was not worth spending $ 0.1 cent for some of them :

RC 4x4's and mountains are a blast when put together. I love trailing up in the mountains!

Those are some pretty cool pictures. I am assuming you have to watch your wheel speeds when you have tire chains on?

No, the chains are with screws to the rims.

Epic terrain and photos as always. You've got to have the highest mileage Maxx in the world by now. How much of it is still original?

What surprises me is that after all these years it appears your still RCing alone. How haven't you gotten your friends addicted?

With a few exceptions with my TRX4 and some friends, or participation in encounters, most of the hikes with Emaxx are hard and there are few colleagues willing to follow them: Get up at 5 in the morning, do 200 + 200 km of road in the day, sometimes in adverse weather conditions and that kind of things... Not easy

Your hikes are beautiful and have been snooping for a long time and dreaming of joining if I lived anywhere remotely close...

Curious what what is your run time and how is it wired? Assuming lights wired separately. Is there a change over to LiPo in the future or no because of voltage?

If I was closer, I'd attempt to join you. Your living the dream. The terrain and scenery you have are unreal. Some of your photos make it look easy, others really convey the difficulty.
