moa dig works a little different. it's basically an electronic dig. both ways work sorta the same, but have slight differences. if you use an electric dig unit like the punk dig and such, when you hit the dig "switch" on the transmitter you basically are just cutting power to one of the motors. you can "lock" the front or rear axle. the amount of "lock" you get depends greatly on your motor and axle setup. a better motor will "lock" harder. you are using the friction in the axle gears and the magnet holding in the motor. the way most MOA rigs axle gearing is set up, it's pretty hard to turn the tires by hand due to the gear reduction built into the axles. the best method for "dig" in a MOA rig tho is to run dual esc's. this allows you to have front and rear dig (providing that your controller has a 3 position third channel) and if your going this route your transmitter needs to have dual esc mixing capabilities. then you can go in and slow or speed up either motor so you can have porportional control.

where porportional control comes in real handy is climbs. you can slow the rear motor down so its not pushing as hard. this allows the front to stay down better as the rear axle is not trying to "run under" the truck.
