Off camber

Re: Off camber

You the man, damn I should have thought of Wikipedia but I've been at work since 0900 yesterday morning so I have some excuse. So the off camber parts that people describe in their rock crawling are just describing the articulation of the axle right? I actually thought it was some description of the terrain as in ruts and plateaus in the trail. Thanks, A

"off-camber" situation is one where your Vehicle is riding sideways along a slope and pointing neither straight up or down the hill.

Re: Off camber

OK, I got it now. After reading that whole site, I'm ready for the Rubicon, who's with me? Just kidding, but good pointers for the uninitiated...
