Grapplers on a Trail ASMR [Video]
Driving Line is back with more ASMR goodness. This time, the location has changed from the garage to the trail. If you’re just joining us, you may not have heard of ASMR or know what it is. Don’t worry, it’s not some esotertic car acronym. For a more detailed breakdown, you can see our first article in the series, but at its most basic level, ASMR is sounds that people love to listen to.
Considering that this was shot in the winter, the trails that we took our Toyota 4Runner on were covered in mud from the rain, with large puddles and crisscrossing streams. If you like the sound of splashing through a serene forest and squelching mud, this video is for you.
The tire of choice for this muddy trail was the Nitto Trail Grappler, whose tread pattern not only provides the grip we needed to get up and over any obstacle, but makes some great noises doing it. We knew it would sound good, but not this good.
