Just wondering if you guys know anything about having some fun in the snow.. Will doing 4WD donuts hurt my transfer case or transmission? If you are thinking just fishtailing, that is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking stationary top-like spinning.
I don't know what if any damage it would do, but I don't see how you could easily do donuts in 4WD anyway. At least in my truck, with 4WD on it grips too tight to do donuts easily. I stick to 2WD when doing them, it's much easier :twisted: Is there a reason why you don't want to use 2?
By the way, Revos kick *** in the snow (tried and true as of last week).
as someone who has purchased vehichles in the past based on their ability to spin in a parking lot (why else would you buy a 1990 4 cyl, mustang) i can offer you these tidbits of advice:
1. hand brake cables tend to snap if pulled hard when the vehicle is going relatively fast.
2. ice, although making spinning faster and more fun , also present the danger of not being able to stop, creating an interesting problem of a vehicle sliding down a loading ramp and into the warehouse dock.
3. cops won't buy the story of "just testing my snow tires" for ever
4. front wheel drive in reverse is also fun in rental cars (in any season)
5. parking lot donuts seem to occur more commonly with booze, and i will therefore refer you to #3.
6. reckess driving, public endangerment, trespassing and mischief can all be thrown at you if pulled over in the act and the cop is an *** (and thankfully he was not)
7. with all season, undersized tires and with the truck in 2WD you will be laughing in the lot (and the ditch if you try to drive anywhere else in the winter)
PS - donuts are a cultural passtime in the maritimes
Yes,, yes they are.
We just had our first real snow fall there last week. I was so excited. I waited til like 1am, when about a foot or more had fallen, and I went out 4x4'n. It was a blast. Now, just have to wait til the next storm comes along.
