i thought that WAS doing donuts? you mean somethings been wrong with all those RWD cars that i've done that with?

could have sworn that doing a donut meant your front tires stayed in one spot, otherwise you're just driving in a circle.

When I put my 242 in I checked my Full Time 4x4 by giving it too much gas pulling onto the main road in the pouring rain. The back end slides out, then you can feel the front tires grabbing. Probably wouldn't try that in the snow though...

Everyone should test drive a bit at low speeds, with a spotter, where nobody can get hurt to at least get a feel for weight transfers and moderate skids.

jbrink and Driabyor are experiencing normal 4wd function? I don't know much but I do know that as long as I stay on the gas, my front wheels pull me straight. I've never driven a vehicle in 4wd that wants to fish tail under power or feels like the front brakes are on during acceleration.

If that is normal, I'm glad I have an AW4 then, If I punch it - my front wheels grab no questions asked. STRAIGHT down the highway!
I could see how it could be fun tho, I don't know if mine will work for that axis spin thing.... I'll have to try that. Didn't think turning to the stops and using mad power was a smart move for the front drive-axles and stuff.

And no, I haven't seen a 4wd in the ditch yet this year. Bout a thousand mid size fwd sedans tho...

A donut is where your front wheels stay in one spot while the rear rotates around, what I am doing is the front and the back spin and both rotate. The video above showed it a little but if it wasn't quite as icey he could have sat and rotated in one spot.

Imagine the teacups at a carnival where you can spin the middle wheel and rotate, that's what the Jeep is doing.
