Fundamentally the new vehicle seems by all accounts to be welldone. We tried a precreation model on a rough terrain course in the grand Prentice Cooper State Forest around 10 miles west of Chattanooga.

Notwithstanding amid the roughest patches including one minute where a precarious slope hurled the front end upward drastically the vehicle was not bothered. We splattered mud smushed through the earth and basically had a fabulous time little enterprise.
Perceivability was incredible because of the flimsy Acolumns however despite everything we figured out how to rip off some little tree limbs in the more profound parts of the trail.
