In general, there are three aspects that cause a car to fail to climb, namely the road surface factor, the condition of the vehicle and the driver himself. Road condition means a condition where the sandy road is steep, potholed or slippery which has the potential to make the vehicle fail to climb. While the condition of the vehicle that is not powered may be due to lack of maintenance, tires, small cc engine power but a lot of cargo. While the driver factor, for example, the skill of the driver to master the vehicle when on an uphill road.
Because, in this situation, the driver tends to panic, then reflexively steps on the gas so that the system perceives a sudden spike in vehicle acceleration.
This is very dangerous, because tire slippage can occur, making the momentum to go on an incline lost. As a result, instead of moving forward, the car is going backwards. The driver must adjust the momentum and step on the gas pedal (acceleration) which regulates the engine rotation rhythm and is not too high so that the car can still climb without slipping.
