Now taking bets for a IRL truck pull(common in Texas)

they’re going to face off the cybertruck again versus an F-150 🤘🏼
Well the lightning and the CT would make a good pull off. Due to mass the lightning would probably win ):

There is not lightning on site. Ford would be idiotic to lend them one. I meant an ICE F-150 like this, which it lost in.

If they do have something like this I hope its a side by side tow challenge. Another tug o war style would impress me about as much as Ford having the lightning pull those trains.

Was thinking the same. Tractor pulls usually involve towing something massive in mud. Would love to see it happen.

They need to drag the Rivian and Hummer around in the pull contest. It's time to let the competition know who is king!

The hummer is just WAY to heavy to be fair. It would be like the most powerful, muscular gorilla trying to pull a hippopotamus around . (Really tried to find a better analogy but it's the best I could come up with. Can someone please find a better one!)

This plus the whole “Winner is the one who gets on the gas first“ thing are why pulling dead weight is far more interesting than a tug-o-war.

You need to drag this 4000 pound block of concrete on a sled through 3 foot deep mud!

They also make tractor pull sleds where the load shifts as you pull it so it gets tougher and tougher. Then it’s just a matter of who can pull it the furthest.

With the amount of reservations, is the risk worth the reward? If done as a video to edit out catastrophic failures, I would not caution. As a live event, something flashy but considered with a high success rate. No competition levels.

What could possibly go wrong at a live Tesla event for the Cybertruck?

More catastrophic than smashing two windows on the truck on stage in front of millions of people?
