    Got my X-Maxx stuck in 5 FOOT DEEP MUD. horrible day!!!

    Oh man today was terrible. What a horrible experience.

    I don't wish this on anybody!!!!

    People. I was freaking out so bad! I had NO IDEA but mud was more than 2-3 inches deep let alone SEVERAL FEET!

    Thought I was going to die trying to retrieve my truck. I've never been in mud before. I was hyper ventilating, had adrenaline beyond anything I've ever experienced and worst of all... It was 40 degrees outside. The Mud was FREEZING COLD.


    make fun of me all you want, I'm over it now.

    Here's the video:




    Here's some pictures:

    Wow. That's not mud. That's textbook quicksand! It looks solid on top, but the soil is liquefied. That's genuinely scary, I would have reacted the same way as you. Cool video!

    Dude you have no idea how miserably the entire ordeal was. The truck was OVER 40 pounds and I stripped the spur gear entirely.
    Lol.

    I had to walk the truck over 1/2 a mile. My entire body hurts.
    We used the other Xmaxx to push this Xmaxx for half that distance.

    Had to go to a car was to rinse myself off, made a HUGE mess.

    Oh man I would have EASILY paid $100 cash to avoid the entire situation. I swear.

    Never doing that again.

    Don't feel bad, Xmaxx. When I was a teenager my little brother and I experienced the same thing. We were riding our dirt bikes in unknown territory after dark when all of the sudden I went off of a slate dump, and into a sulfur creek. My RM250 submerged totally into the mud, and all I could see was little bubbles from my exhaust. It took my little brother and I hours to find enough wood to lay down on top of the mud, in an effort to pull my bike out, and get it back to solid land. Needless to say, Xmaxx...I feel your pain. (lol) Glad you got your truck back!
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.

    oh yeah, I just found it on YT. I found the language to be on par with his situation but not suitable for everybody. Xmaxx rocks!

    I didnt know it was time for Halloween again. Cause it looks like the X-Maxx could pass as a mud monster.

    Just kidding that really is a bummer.
    Just because its there doesn't mean its for sale.
