    I found this pretty odd...

    I was backing out of a really long driveway last night and started to drop the hood, picked up a little speed and it was still going down.

    20MPH in reverse with a 6ft tall wind break blocking my view.

    The Smartop is great. Had it on my previous cab and removed it when i sold it. Have yet to fit it to my S4 but really miss it with the weather like this ( hopefully fit it next week ). Well worth it.

    For some reason it does allow you to drop the roof while reversing. I tried it a few days ago.
