Video: Army Truck 8x8 Against "Pozhazhka": Drag Well, Very Heavy Vehicles
The Hoonigan channel went against all the canons and put up very heavy and slow cars for the race: an 8x8 army truck, a 6x6 airfield fire truck and a Ford F-450 4x4 pickup truck harnessed to a car transporter trailer. They are so unhurried that in one of the "races" the second participant was a non-professional runner.
- The first duel involved a Ford F-450, loaded with three cars on a trailer, and an army Oshkosh HEMTT. The first has 475 hp, removed from a diesel 6.7 V8, a 6-speed "automatic", four-wheel drive and a weight of 12,700 kilograms. The second is 360 forces with a 12.1 liter engine, 4-speed automatic, eight driving wheels and 17,690 kilograms.
- Ford took the lead from the start and gradually increased the gap. The race was held only 500 feet (152.4 meters). Apparently, in order not to wait for the finish line too long. At this distance, the truck-tractor managed to gain a significant lead. Looking ahead: in the final consolation round, he won again, albeit with a smaller advantage.
In the second race, a 6x6 airfield fire engine was set up against Oshkosh. It turned out to be even slower, and the "soldier" celebrated the victory. The banter reached its climax in the third start. "Pozharka" was opposed by a runner, and not a professional. And he came to the finish line flush with her rear bumper, and at the start he pulled ahead strongly at all.
- Earlier, the Carwow portal in another drag battle compared powerful hot hatches of four brands: Audi S3, BMW M135i, Mercedes-AMG 35 and Volkswagen Golf R. All cars are equipped with a turbo engine with a capacity of over 300 forces and all-wheel drive. The test included not only acceleration from a standstill, but also acceleration from the move, as well as emergency braking to a complete stop.
