    That was interesting to see, but I fail to see the point of this. The sad part is this guy obviously thought this shows how much more powerful his truck was, but it's a ridiculous measurement. This is all about traction force - and/or loss of tractive force. The tires have more grip when rolling than when locked. Once the tires are locked, and the vehicle is being pulled - you are pretty much screwed since you now would have to reverse the momentum with tires that are now not gripping.

    Point is, the person with better traction (weight/4 wheel drive/better tires) is going to win - especially if they get the "jump" on the pull. This tests nothing but traction and is absolutely meaningless - it's hilarious that people actually do $#@! like this to prove their trucks power.

    Funny as hell to watch though - not sure i would have been cool with someone doing that to me - that's for sure. Click here to enlarge
