yeah, that'll prove a lot.

Shows you how much the idiot knows about trucks and the capability of one in general.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

And its been proven many many times that even though HP and TQ play a part in this...traction and driver skill probably play a more important role.

Yea, not much smarts here...we've talked about this on the dmax forum too(or on here, not sure), most of us agree the ford would win since its heavier. But I think they should concentrate on paying back the govt instead of wasting time, money and resources on doing highschool stuff.

I would bet his thinking was one of two.

1. They have already done it, and he knows the GM will win.
2. He is betting that Ford won't take the challenge, and if they don't, guess who won? GM.

I am by no means saying GM would beat Ford or Ford would beat GM, who knows, but it's a play to gain some advertising ground, can't blame him for that. It's got us talking doesn't it?!
