Re: 2011 Ford Super Duty pulls 100,000-pound Caterpillar 988F Wheel Loader in Drag Ra

They should have put it up against a chevy and dodge, not another Ford! Then we could see some action!

I am sure that is just one of many test ford is doing. Also watch the tires on the 6.7 spin.

Thats dumb and does not prove anything. Its like the GM idiot saying that he wanted to hook bumpers to a ford. They should drain all the oil, trans fluid, coolant out and do that till they explode and which ever one blows is the looser.

Me too. I'd love to have one

This is what the person who put up that video said about the tires spinning

"The wheel hop you see is a result of an unloaded front end and 734 ft-lb of torque clawing at the clay!"

I don't really get this test.

VW had a real video of their little SUV years ago towing a jumbo jet.

A better test would be lifetime operating cost versus vs. performance. Like pulling a load 25% of the time at 90% of legal road speeds and measuring fuel economy and maintenance costs compared to say, the V-10 or maybe the competition.

a true test would be to hook two trucks to a 15,000lb load and drive them across the country for a few hundred thousand miles.
