Hey, torque is important for sports cars too.
Tug of war videos never really prove anything, but even if they did, this one wouldn’t. It features a C5 Corvette losing pretty badly to an old Blazer. It’s actually a little more one-sided than you’d probably expect, but there are some advantages to having a vehicle that’s actually designed for towing. A more central position for the strap is one of these, and a pretty important one at that, obviously.
The higher position for the strap is important too, as the Blazer is therefore not only pulling the Corvette back, but also up. Doesn’t really matter though, nobody buys a Corvette for towing.
