Seen that video and all the dipshits posting about it.
Tug-o-wars are never decided by anything but traction. Look up duramax truck pulls and you will see they all break the front end due to the IFS and improper lifts. Also, the toureg stands on the brakes till the duraturd broke traction then drove off with it, not rocket science there.
My truck might have more weight and power, but I bet an auto car with sticky race tires could drive off with me (given 2wd vs 2wd).
