Re: Wanted: Expert Advice on Backwards Hill Slide
I have a manual and I was doing my first steep climb that was about three times longer than the one in the video and I got stopped near the top. I wasn't sure what to do and I didn't want to start sliding backwards (it was basically real dry gravel) so I put in neutral and let off the brakes a little and I felt like I started steamrolling down the hill so I hit the brakes as I was going backwards and the feeling of going faster and faster while the COG of the rig leaning back from me braking was NOT a good feeling.
In hindsight I think I should have thrown it into reverse and let out the clutch since I was already in 4LO. I think that would have controlled my backwards descent.
So, I am also interested to hear what the consensus is!
