    Since this video seems to be reposted often, let me comment on what he says. What he says is flatly wrong. If he is right, a lighter car cannot outpull a heavier car (he says, the only thing this shows is that Tesla is heavy). By his logic, a loaded F150 that weighs more than F350 will outpull F350. We all know that's simply not true. Have you seen small car outpulling heavier truck? I have.

    What he is confused about is the difference between kinetic friction (friction when object is sliding or spinning) with static friction. Kinetic friction is proportional to the weight (and he is correct) but static friction is more complicated (it has an inequality sign). It's the static friction that pulls the truck and here the torque and more importantly, how fast that torque can be applied to the wheels does matter. It is not surprising that Ford challenged Tesla for a rematch and when Musk accepted the challenge, they backed off.

    I saw a lighter truck out pull a heavier truck on Truck night in America. The only reason for it was the lighter truck was faster to take off and had more momentum

    Been brainstorming on a Milwaukee Lith Ion Battery mod for the ‘02.

    I think these type mods are the future.

    So essentially this is my truck vs a Tundra....empty. Pretty easy pull since my truck weighs 7800 lbs. Not a big feat for a HD truck.

    Now let’s take similar trucks, but load down the Tundra.



    The Tundra easily pulled the Duramax, and the driver of the DM isn’t very good at pull offs. Burning tires works good on drag radials. Not so much on street tires.

    This is to the extreme, but pretty impressive.




    Some pretty good friction force going on in these videos.

    Then again, these are worthless competitions. We all know the tractor will pull 80k lbs a whole hell of a lot better than a dually duramax.

    LMAO good one.

    One of my friends told me he pre-ordered a Tesla truck. I was completely at a lost for words. Tried to be positive and the only thing I could think of was "it has a lot of flat surfaces so if it ever gets in an accident it'll be easy to repair" :eek2:o_O

    I showed my 8 year old a picture of the cyber truck. He said dad that’s cool and futuristic. While I do value his opinion he is now grounded until he’s 12.

    I’m sure it’s a great performer but it appears that Elon and John DeLorean had a baby. :monocle:

    Is it fitty? Or 50? Either way the cyber truck would need a cool grill before he’d roll through the hood in it. And probably some double D’s instead of double A’s

    Neither does Toyota. None of them care about the trucks they make; only the trucks they sell to dealers.

    I put my $100 down. I love Toyota but their gas mileage is a joke and they're honestly losing my interest. Elon is not afraid to take risks and do his own thing, majority opinion be hanged. I respect that. Seems it's catching, too.

    I’m just really surprised after seeing the cars they’ve made that the truck looks that far out. In person it might be cool enough to get beyond the wedge. Hell I remember when the 93 Camaros and Firebirds came out and thinking how it would be to get in an accident with a wedge shaped car like that and I’ll just say it went as I thought it would, Popped a Chevy blazer up in the air and of course it came down halfway up my hood. Oops.

    I wasn't surprised at all. Elon flat out said in multiple interviews over a year ago that he wanted the truck to look like something from the future or straight out of movies like Blade Runner and Tron; and that he knows the majority of people wouldn't like his vision for the appearance of it but didn't care. He's a man of his word and isn't afraid to push the boundaries, which is why he's so successful.

    why are we still talking about this, it is not truck. It falls more in line with an SUV or a Ridgeline.
