Mensagem:  Syd, that sounds scary indeed.  I bought a 4X4 Suzuki Samurai years ago. So I had spent a night "down below" (our term for the city of San Bernadino in the valley below) and was coming up the mountain to where I was living,  The Highway Patrol was asking/telling everyone to put on their chains/cables or drive in four wheel drive. So I engaged the 4X4 gearshift and away I went. I turned off to go to my little town.  There was a stretch about 300 m long that was quite steep.  As I was going up a huge truck was going down.  The Suzuki started sliding all over.  More feeling that a samba, less than a forró.  I sure thought I was going to hit the truck.  It was probably a few months later that I learned that it was not enough to engage the 4X4 gear shift; it was necessary to "turn" or "rotate" the front hubs.  That's right; I had never been been in four sheel drive.  LOL
