Maybe it's me but a max 4 doesn't seem to be God's gift to steep down hill desent.The geometry seems all wrong, driver over front 26''tires,base of motor about shoulder high when desending.I pull back sticks to slow and apply a little throttle to engage drive belt as to not freewheel and false steer.Should I apply the park brake maybe 2 clicks to create a drag before desent?I rather wear brakes than smoke my t-20 bands.Some times I feel like a cowboy in an old western on a run away buck board.I was behind a max when it stood up 90 degrees, the only thing that kept the folks from tea-kettling was the winch mouted on the front which slowed it down enough for the driver to gain control.Some people already told me I was just going down hill intermittently on my front wheels only!
