Keeping it in 4WD almost all the time

So, I've been riding my baby a lot since I got her and I find myself almost always in 4wd mode.

I like the feel of the engine braking on all 4 wheels, but more importantly, I feel that when driving at higher speeds (like in the 30-50 mph range down dirt roads) that in 2wd the thing darts all over the place. Almost like the rear wheels are diff'ing out constantly and it drives unstable. Putting it in 4wd takes that all away and it drives and tracks wonderfully.

Thoughts, experiences?

I've noticed it too. The way these things are clutched they up shift very quickly and get into long gears fast, lot of torque no belt slip. May not sound like your going fast, but those back wheels are turning!!....
