    When I'm in 4wd and H I try and keep it to @30 or under. If it's faster then that u prob don't need the 4wd so just turn to 2wd and go as fast as u like. Im not sure if it hurts the engine going higher but it's harder to steer and I just feel safer being in 2wd if going above @30.

    Well I have hit 85km/hr for a few seconds (I backed off and chickening out). Too fast for me even on rough patched pavement. I can't see either this or and x2 being driven at or near WOT EG 50MPH.

    The WHAT IF QUESTION, pops up and enough is enough. But 4WD is fine IMO especially if you're getting suck to a side or such. The front can pull you out if its pulling in 2WD it won't happen. I am currently running in 4WD 99% of the time as i am breaking in the power train. If something is wrong I want it to show up now, not after my warranyt craps out.

    We where riding on ice packed snow trail that was water ice mud etc very slippery had to run 4x4 and keep the speed at 20-25 couldn’t get any faster way to icy. I was hoping that wouldn’t hurt anything because they really don’t say anywhere on speed high or low

    No limit to use 4WD, as for 4WD LOW you're not going to get much speed anyway but the engine is the one really moving otherwise its the same drive train gears moving, but slower.

    Don’t see any reason to fly like that in 4x4. I don’t think it would hurt anything except work the train a little harder. I run mine in high 4x4 almost full time but I’m always in water, sand or mud. Opening up at max speed in 2 wheel drive is enough to make my butt to pucker up.

    Yeah the X2 has the "pucker up" zone on the speedo!!! I am just shy of that but can feel it coming on...

    The machine can theoretically run 4wd at the same speed as as 2wd. The motor may not wind out quite as high so thats your limiting factor. Good idea? Maybe not often but ive certainly ran it pretty hard in 4wd from one mud hole to the next not stopping to switch in and out. I have however ran wot in low range while in 4wd often and i havent had any issues with that at all.
