    for tug of war nothing should break, except your ego.

    The first video just demonstrates how a LR can put power down to the wheels, something a landy has always been good at.

    The factors like, tyres, pressure, grip pattern, driverskill all play a part in tug of war. Theoretically, the first one that spin loses

    Agree, but note also that the Disco was heavier than all the other vehicles. Major factor in friction calculation.

    Absolutley. The heaviest vehicle with the most tyre surface area will usually win.
    My Unimog 416 has the weakest (in terms of KW) engine compared to any high-end SUV, but I will drag any 2 of you in the opposite direction against your will ;-)
    Mostly because of weight and massive tyres.

    These sorts of contests are rather pointless, but can be fun when they are not as sedate as in the video.

    interesting, but the vehicle thats the heaviest with least surface area should do better. Your PSI will be higher. Aggressive tread is also good. There is so many factors, but power means nothing

    “ ... uploaded a brand-new tug of war video featuring four high-end SUVs. The competitors are the Volkswagen Touareg, Audi Q7, Land Rover Discovery 5 and a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado... “...

    ... they’re flashy things but
    bit out of their league here ...
    so not sure if the Touareg & Audi

    as ‘high-end’ !! ...

    ... a reasonable 4.6L D2 V8 would
    probably be a fairer match for them.

    Don't worry 4eTouareg, this poor soul has probably been sitting in his garage idling his Land Rovers for too long. Everybody needs to get out a bit

    He probably doesn't know that whenever new luxury cars/SUV's are launched these days the interior quality is always compared to Audi interiors - which is considered to be the luxury benchmark.

    I'm yet to see a video where a hitch ball comes off in a tuck of war contest. Simply can't generate sufficient force to break it with rwo vehicles on pulling on a flat surface.

    That only becomes an issue when a vehicle is snatched, due to the extreme forces that the tow hitch is being exposed to. This will never in a million years happen in a "tug of war", just not enough force, unless of course the tow hitch is faulty, but so can a designated tow point go faulty over time....

    Works every time for me, so does it seem to work for most other people, going by their comments.

    Maybe update your media player?
