Dig - Burn (Front# Rear# Locked# Unlocked) --

Used exclusively on rock crawlers, dig refers to the ability to selectively power only one axle (i.e. the front tires or the rear tires). If only the front tires are powered it's called a front dig (the most common), and if only the rear tires are powered it's called a rear dig. A dig may either be an unlocked dig or a locked dig. With an unlocked dig, the unpowered tires freewheel - this is usually used to help with side hilling and steep ascents. With a locked dig, the unpowered tires are locked - this is usually used to help with tight turns and steep descents. For dual motor rigs that don't use a driveshaft (i.e. super crawlers), a dual ESC set up is usually used to enable dig - this is known as an electrical dig. A servo actuated system (mechanical dig) is used on rigs that use driveshafts (i.e. 2.2 crawlers), such as a sliding axle system. All digs require at least a 3 channel radio system, with the 3rd channel operating the dig.
