Duramax vs VW Touareg: Guess who wins?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=k62gW3Se5e0

The VW has an impressive 553 lb-ft of torque (if the one in the video has the V10 TDI). Gotta love rednecks.

As much as I like to watch this stuff I still can't belive people do that on pavement. I wasn't sure which would win this one as either could/should be 4x4, could/should be diesel etc... With the truck being higher I half expected it to move the weight off the rear wheels of the VW & win. Wish we knew more about the truck/SUV in the video. The cat in the GM has to be red faced!

These videos annoy me. Too few people seem to get it that it is all about traction. It has nothing to do with the "badass-ness" of the vehicle. If you notice the Touareg starts to spin its tires and get dragged backwards at first. Then the traction control took over, cut the throttle, tapped the brakes, and got the traction back right as the Duramax broke the tires loose.

Every one of these tug-o-war videos has some element of the loss by spinout.
