Good thread. Good insight.
I just had the opportunity to test out my crawl control at Oceana Dunes and it worked like a champ. I took about 1/4 of my air out and found that 4H was good for relatively flat terrain, but that 4L keeps you from getting bogged down on steeper climbs in the first place.
On one occasion , I was in 4L and purposely stopped short of cresting a steep dune and tried to start again. I began spinning and sinking to the frame. I engaged the crawl and slowly but surely, I crested and was free.
My lesson for the day is that MOMENTUM can be your friend in the deep sand dunes as long as you are aware of the shifting sand drop-offs, rollover dangers, and other drivers that await unseen over the next ridge. My other lesson was that crawl control is noisy, but amazing.
