A torque tug of war battle was organized between a Chevrolet Silverado and a semi.
It might not be as impressive as a tug of war between two Ferrari F50s, but it's still interesting to see a Chevrolet Silverado being pitted against the brute force of a semi-trailer truck. It's not all about torque in these duels as an important role is also played by the available traction.
It should be mentioned the 6.6-liter Duramax-powered Silverado pick-up truck was carrying some weight on its bed whereas the semi had no load over its drive wheels. These factors probably contributed to what can be described as a surprising result taking into account many would expect the semi to take the win. In addition, the fact that the Silverado also had "$15,000 worth of engine work" probably influenced the result as well.
