Driving in the mud is similar to driving in snow, gentle acceleration and lower speeds will help you control the vehicle.
Some easy things to remember
- Get out and look! (Check for debris that could damage your tires and depth of puddles)
- Leave a space cushion (The vehicle in front of you may need to reverse)
- Drive at a constant speed 15-20kmph (momentum is important, but driving too fast will cause your vehicle to hop in and out of ruts and can cause damage to the trail or vehicle)
- Follow the path OR straddle the ruts
