I would caution people from taking comments like this too seriously. Sure, its mostly driver skill, as most good challenges are, but it's far from common sense. People fail all the time because they were in over their head. It's rarely the fault of the vehicle, almost always a misread of the terrain and how to set yourself up for each difficult spot.

Here you can see a few examples of how quickly it can go wrong:
Darned straight!

Hells Revenge is serious pucker up. The videos don't do it justice. You have to be there to really see the seriousness of it. There is a reason there is usually a crowd. Here is another one:

I think most current CT owners are looking forward to getting their wall chargers first lol. I've heard some complaints in person
true, im waiting on my Power Share but already have a charger so not worried about that right now. Just want the LOCKERS before anything.

Damn straight. Video never really seems to capture the ridiculous intensity of some hills.

Is it just me or is that one guy way to close to those winch cables?

I thought the same thing. Good way to get cut in half. I would always throw a jacket over a cable just in case...

Transport Evolved covered it on TEN, as she complements the timing of the videos vs new owners getting trucks stuck:




It just goes to show that really you do need to know what you're doing. Despite what the damned if you do, damned if you don't, 'only looks hard' trolls say.

The spotter walking around below the struggling truck is 100% cringe.

It's funy how when the Cybertruck get's stuck in the snow she doesn't attribute it to poor driving skills or bad decision making, but when the Cybertruck climb's Hell's Revenge like it's a stroll in a park, she credits the achievement to the off-road skill of the driver, not the capabilities of the Tesla.

She loves all EVs except for the ones made in California and Texas by a company that starts with a "T" and ends with "A". She tries to cover up her irrational bias, mostly unsuccessfully.

Did you see her nightmare about trying to get the Ford F-150 Lightning vehicle to home power backup setup working properly and how much time and money it cost her to get some small semblance of a partially functional backup power system? And how no one could iron out the kinks she was experiencing?

They just need to rename it to Cyberbeast Revenge, the only Truck that can go up that Hill like it was flat ground. Elon was right, this is an Off Road Monster…

Thankfully, my off-road needs are much more modest. Of course, it's always nice to know you have plenty of headroom in those unexpected moments when you need it!
