I have driven my Rav up some REALLY slippy and steep hills recently, mainly slightly off-road on gravel and mud drives to cabins in the mountains. What amazes me is how well the Rav's 4 wheel drive and the engine will pull the Rav up these steep, slippery hills without hardly any wheelspin or engine lag, even when fully loaded (mine is an auto and I slip it into L1). HOWEVER, on the way down again I feel terrified. Having only disk brakes at the front and drums at the rear I feel the need to be really careful on the brake to maintain a slow speed without locking up. Engine breaking does not work because this would mean going faster which would not feel safe on these inclines. Any comments?
