Default Re: 4wh drive question

That's normal and like Patrick said FWD is only meant to be used in slick conditions or loose earth. But it's the two front wheels that are locked together by the drive train when FWD is engaged. The wheel on the outside of the turn has further to travel and needs to rotate faster but its locked in step with the inside wheel. So the two wheels resist each other. Any cars rear wheels would do this too if there were no differential that allowed them to rotate at different speeds.
