    Boot lid?

    They`re just dragging this car along this rocky path! Is this supposed to be a fail video?

    When they were pulling him did he have it in reverse? Also how the hell do people afford this hobby?

    So LSD makes one wheel turn forward and one backward? The guy had it in effing reverse how do you do that, at least in my STI it was all the way right and down, 1st is all the way left and up.

    it`s normal for the wheels to be turning backwards in this case. he didn`t have it in reverse, it was in 1st gear. but because it`s an all wheel drive car and it was off, but in gear, the wheels that have grip turn forwards, and the engine`s resistance will cause the wheels that have less grip to rotate backwards. this is normal. anyone can test it with a manual shift car which is up on blocks. put the drive wheels up in the air, put it in first with the car off, then turn one wheel by hand, the other wheel will rotate in the opposite direction.

    Bro, I could get your Subaru Piece Ol` Doodoo back on the main road in the same time it took you to complete that sentence that you have no clue what it means.

    Boot lid?

    Cover for the compartment at the back to store stuff in. I think you call it a trunk over there. What do you call the bit covering it?

    They`re just dragging this car along this rocky path! Is this supposed to be a fail video?

    They just wanted it off the trail and didn`t care what happened to it. Down was less distance to the end of the trail. Less "recovery" and more "get off our area".

    Further up is light offroad, like a rally stage (which the car may well be suited to since the model started off as a rally car). Take a wrong turn and you end up going downhill into this area, which is a different thing entirely.

    Oh man my 4-wheel drive car should make it over these boulders. Clearance has nothing to do with it.

    And then he used the brake while being towed and didn`t brake when he was about to run in to the parked vehicle no longer towing him.

    "why were the wheels moving backwards at some points?

    It is because of the spider gears in the differential. They make it so the wheels can spin independently and at different speeds around corners

    Paining fast on a car, makes it fast. Painting chick magnet makes your car attractive to chicks. Paint 4wd does make the car a 4wd. If you dont believe me try it yourself :P

    Hey, hate the owner, not the car scoobies are deservedly legend. Look how long it took this idiot to kill his.

    Besides it gave the good ole boys in their big trucks with ground clearance a smug banquet.

    Exactly. They are an excellent car if driven properly.

    This is what he probably thought he was doing:

    from two separate posts on Youtube about this twat: "Driving the way he did he ended up splitting his oil pan draining all of the motor`s oil into the soil. The owner then abandoned the vehicle which was blocking the main trail. Yes, he did damage to the trail and it`s actions like his that result in off road access being blocked for others." and..."

    I`ll never understand why people like to off road in 4 wheelers. Get a dirt bike. It would have cleared that whole section in a jiffy, without the bumpy ride and straps.

    I`m still stuck on the title of this post... Is it supposed to be some kind of code for something? "4 wheel drive does not make an off-roader make"? Is it some kind of metaphor? Or is it like the Da Vinci Code or something?

    All I can say is you at least need raised suspension and much bigger tires to take any car off road.
