It does look like the Chevy driver never really tried to pull. His wheels were locked the whole time. Even the gas engine will spin the tires in 4 low.

This one turned out a bit different. The biggest difference is that the Chevy owner isn't an A hole. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBac...endscreen&NR=1

One of the guys on my crew showed me this video today. Truck pull offs are about the most scientifically inaccurate way of possibly measuring a truck's "capability." Too many factors...gearing, tires, who hits the gas first, traction, etc. As soon as one guy looses traction, whether on the gas or braking, the other guy can tow him around like a trailer. I drive a chevy as a personal vehicle and a company vehicle, and prefer them over the other of the big three, but during a different day under different circumstances, this could have gone any number of other ways. That is pretty funny though.

I saw this on facebook! If I was in the Chevy you better believe when the guy in the dodge stopped I would have done more than walk up to his door and say 'try that again'
