Hardcore 4WD Offroad Fitouts let a driver take their four wheel drive vehicle out on the open road with relative safety for themselves and the integrity of their vehicles. Four wheel drive means that the engine can deliver power to each one of the wheels, allowing for maximum speed in situations that other cars might get stuck in with power only going to two wheels. This allows the driver to experience better handling in tougher situations.
4×4 is a term used to describe the various four wheel drive trucks and cars. It stands for the number of wheels installed on the car and the total number of wheels that power from the engine is going to while driving.
Vehicle suspension is integral to the durability of its other parts and components, as well as the comfort of the driver. Items like shock absorbers, linkages, and springs will all help in preventing damage to the car from rocks and uneven or tough surfaces that are being traveled on. Jumping off of ramps or other objects also calls for an especially detailed suspension.
Suspension helps keep all the wheels of the vehicle on the ground as much as it can, and give slightly to cornering situations so that the car will effectively “stick” to the road instead of flip over or rise into the air as most other cars would when under extreme duress. It also prevents occupants and internal components from cracking or otherwise being damaged by bumps in the road.
All wheel drive cars with power going to two wheels have an easier time on low traction street surfaces than four wheel drive cars. These 4x4s can experience wheel hop when handling on low traction surfaces.
4×4 differentials make sure that the wheels are rotating at different speeds so that the vehicle can turn properly. These speeds must be in close conjunction with one another but not exactly the same. If this method of design is lost or not implemented, the vehicle is especially hard to handle, as the wheels are rotating a two completely different speeds, making the tires skid and slip with each steering correction.
Hardcore 4WD Offroad Fitouts fitted with traction control retain better handling when under duress. As a wheel begins to spin out of control, a brake is applied to it, with the converted energy from the other wheels keeping the vehicle from spinning completely out of control. Most modern cars are outfitted with this feature for safety in emergency situations. Skidding can occur, and heavy brake wear is to be expected from repeated use. The car usually remains on the same path as was intended before the traction control was initiated, making it an important safety feature.
