    Could be the 2 dimensional view of the video that is giving a false perception. Also in most cases they don't look too high till you get to the top looking down.LOL

    Some aggressive engine braking in locked low gears will help. The last thing you want in the decent is your brakes especially if there is mud.
    Unlike on an atv where you can just use the back brakes, the Ace's brake pedal will lock all four wheels. and you can't shift your weight to the back, the danger of your backend coming over your head is very real.

    Going up that hill, momentum is your best friend.

    With a wheelbase of 61.5 that makes for a good hill climber.

    Yeah it really does! I went over some really large rock obstacles and it never scraped the skid plate. Should short enough to be able to keep a tire on all the high points
