We had that same slick red clay at Fort Benning. Once those tires load up you have racing slicks.
That is exactly where I was thinking of when I saw that. He knew to keep the front wheels on the high side where the driest dirt was and it paid off.

For a 8x8, the HET is one of the worse trucks for traction that I have EVER driven, the straight frame along with air bag rear suspension keeps unlike the articulated rears, the axles from dropping into holes to get traction, even with low and ALL axles locked in. I moved 3 a while back, going up a dry dirt farm road with cross road water channels, the HETS would break traction as the axles lifted, had to use locked low.
