The Pointlessness of the Tesla Cybertruck vs. Ford F-150 Tug of War

TLDRThe viral video of the Tesla Cybertruck pulling a Ford F-150 in a tug of war isn't as impressive as it seems. The demonstration was pointless because it only highlighted that the Tesla is heavier and has more weight on its driven wheels, giving it an advantage. Torque wasn't the reason for the Tesla's win, as both trucks have sufficient torque thanks to gearing.
