4 down is also called FLAT TOWING
Towing a car with all four wheels on the pavement is called flat towing. It is mostly used to tow a vehicle behind an RV or motorhome. The advantages of flat towing are that there is no heavy trailer or dolly, and the tires wear at an even rate. The disadvantage is that many cars cannot be towed this way without modification. Since the car being towed is turned off but the transmission is still in gear, lubricating fluid is not being pumped. This can cause damage to the gears and transmission. The drive shaft is usually removed from the drive axle
