Seems like he let off the throttle a bit 3/4 of the way to the top at the dips. I wish he would of lugged it at the bottom n as going up would of got into it more to see how torque was but oh well seemed to do good so far. Cool thanks for the video

Doesn't seem to whine that bad. Maybe worse live but a sound blanket will deaden a lot of that. May also lessen as it wears in.

Trails looked extremely smooth, any idea where this was taken?
The guy who was driving on video via facebook said it was "Wildcat off-road here in London ky"

First , congrats on the ride and thanks for the video. What's your thoughts on the gearing on these trails?
For trail riding it could definitely be geared a little bit lower... that opinion has been said by me and two or three of my buddies that I have let drive it... But at the same time this was said when they all had a smile on their faces from just driving it... I believe that for someone that wants to spend a lot of time in the trails the Rekluse clutch will be a great investment and make this machine even better...

Any big hills that u went up did it seem to have a lots of power or do u have to push it to get up them?
There wasn't any hills that I struggled with... This thing has more power than you could ever use in trail riding... Quick high revving engine honestly reminds you of a crotch rocket... Keep in mind in this video I was trying to go up it relatively slow and in first gear because that's what a lot of the video requests had said... I hit it harder off video... As well as just flying up it in 2wd...

Sure can hear those gears whine!! Coming from a 1st year Commander that's not a selling point for me. :(
I remember when Nissan GT- R was first introduced it intentionally had gear whine as they didn't use any insulation around the gear and it was justified by having the race car experience! I would be comfortable with it and it should be an easy fix for others.

Thanks for the video. Nice to see one on trails more similar to what we ride in SW VA and eastern TN. how did it handle up & down hills with baby heads all over the place? We're always on rocks it seems.
