You didn't lose because of HP or TQ, you lost because he has more weight over the rear wheels. He might of had a better tire for pavement traction than you.

That's why pulls like that prove nothing. Actually not true... It proves who has the better traction.

Yep, chassis to chassis is a test of traction as much as anything :shrug:

Throw a pallet of quikcrete in the bed of yours and rechallenge him :evil:

I give you props for admitting you got beat in a pull-off by a gas Ford Bronco with one wheel drive!:Thumbup:

Takes more of a man to admit he lost more than when he won. :agreed:

Pulling on pavement in 4x4 is just plain old stupid. Poop breaks real fast that way.
