With Warn as a major sponsor, one might expect a few winching exercises. Only too right! Almost every obstacle required the cable to be pulled out. Putting their equipment under such extreme conditions, competitors used every method known to keep winches cool and sufficiently energized. The fastest time wins, so winch speed and an efficiently coordinated hookup were essential. The venerable Warn 8274, which provides an incredibly fast line speed, proved a valuable choice of equipment for many teams.
