I never knew that two-wheel drive specifically caused washboards. In my case I have no choice, as I only have two wheel drive (well, four if you count the duallies
), but I'm curious what it is about two-wheel drive that makes washboards? Is there any driving technique to do (or avoid) to make it happen less?
Also, does this only happen when the roads are wet? I only ask that because up north, if you drive hard on a wet dirt road, then every pothole or flaw that you "smash" through only gets worse -- much more so than when dry.
