Re: Sharp turns while in 4WD? Truck rocks!
What is happening is you have all the wheels locked up through the 4X4 and they all want to rotate at different rates. E.G different turning circles.On a loose surface the tyres can slip a little but on hard grippy surface the tyre winds up and distorts until it lets the grip go.Short wheelbase vehicles have less of a problem than our long wheelbase.
It does load up the drive components and should be considered when ever 4X4 is engaged.
