I had often wondered if you cud shift into 4wd if not rolling. Someone had said that it you could. We had snow and sleet overnight here in western NC and I was anxious to get out and play in it with the RC this morning. In the past I had always got on the street and shifted into 4wd while rolling and it was always a very stiff operation that required some effort. It had been so long since it had been in 4wd I thought I'd try it before I got on the street. To my amazement the shift lever just plunked into 4wd with no effort at all. I almost had the streets to myself. The closed supermarket parking lots were unmolested so I had a ball sliding around in the slick stuff.
