This may sound totally ridiculous (I apologize to those who are much more mechanical than I will ever be) but lets say no power is going to your front wheels for some reason. If you are going forward, it's like you are driving a real-wheel only vehicle. But if you turn the vehicle around and go up in reverse, it's like driving a front-wheel drive car so you may be able to "pull" up. Probably not the reason - just trying to figure it out - I guess true front-wheel drive cars also benefit from having the engine weight on the drive wheels. Experts please don't chastise me.
