Default 4x4 tug of war

i have never seen this and im sure there are other events i've never
seen, but this stuff is very narly and cool, pure torque man, these
trucks with no sponsors just your ordinary truck on steroids some
with tracktor tires some with barrel tires both tugging and the
manuvered truck pulls the other to a win, im interested in the gear
ratios they were running, they said a rig was running a granny gear
ratio, and that rig would pull slow but massive and the other guy
just slides rubber, i liked that torque, it was on VS, i'll try to post a
clip, and i could'nt get enough of mud dragging, man we need to
stop and smell the rubber, lets enjoy some of this stuff called
"horse power", and "drag racing" and for a while forget all the
other B$HIT, eat a hotdog, popcorn, enjoy your grandkids,
enjoy my fellow gearheads, may your gaskets always holdup,
lest go RACING, godspeed :wink:

yea exactly, this old 74 ford dual cab had like 5ft tractor tires and
man this thing had torque, it was called, "old blue", and yea it makes
me want to build a truck to pull, there were around 16 trucks and
there are no sponsors yet, so these guys get together like OUTLAWS! :wink: these guys were running 1,000 hspwr big blocks,
im going to see if they pull around town 8)
