traversing a steep hill
alright i got a basic question. not alot of ground clearnance and a long wheel base... whats the best way to cross over a steep hill and not get high centered. cross over it at an angle right? so your front and opposite rear reach the top at the same time?
If it's a steep hill I think the first thing your not suppose to do on a steep hill is turn the car across the hill.

The approach you described is probably best, but you have to be careful not to get too sideways as that can rapidly become unsafe. In the end it may be best not to go up that particular hill or get a strap out and get a pull and know you'll scrape the undercarriage.
