This is when I really want that 2-wheel drive.

When you find out how heavy 270 lbs really is. What a ball buster, Lol.

This was after backing it up out of the really deep sh*t. Was finally able to get the front wheel out of the crap and do a pivot turn. And the mud was drying out on me making it like concrete while I huffed and puffed. Holy cow, that sucked, Lol.

I try not to go alone, which means a quad or a sxs and an extra pair of hands. But If I'm already carrying a couple of lipo batteries for backup lights, I wonder if winch is possible..

Me thinks that all that may be needed is a high-voltage polarity switch. Will the motor controller get confused if the motor starts spinning backwards?

I wish it was that easy, but the AC motor is a little tougher as the encoder needs to be reversed as well as the phase leads.
I am blaming @Honcho for my ignorance. I got this idea from him about three years ago.

So would several polarity switches do the trick then? How many wires go to the motor? I seem to remember at least four relatively thick ones.
