One of the ways to increase the cross-country ability of the car is blocking cross-axle differentials. This is what will allow the wheels to be firmly connected to each other, thereby ensuring their constant and uniform rotation. The drive wheels will be able to use traction on the ground to generate the maximum traction needed to move the vehicle.
Find an additional differential lock lever closer to the driver. When entering a muddy country road, stop the car and engage the cross-axle differential lock by moving the additional lever to the "Back" position. The indicator light on the instrument panel should light up.
Stop the car and set the lever responsible for engaging the downshift to the “Forward” position as soon as the car starts to stall, even at first speed. Drive calmly on the country road.
Stop the car and disengage the differential locks, upshifting as soon as you drive onto a level road. This will help you avoid wear on the differential gears.
Thus, the blocking of interwheel differentials is most effective when the weight between the axle wheels is unevenly distributed, for example, when both wheels on one side fall into a clay track or a ditch with water, while the others go higher on a dry flat surface, or in the case of a complete separation wheels from the surface, for example, when overcoming ridge obstacles.
