Here it is pulling a 747...

...stupid comparison, wouldn't want to go 100mph+ with a pickup truck or pull 10.000lbs with a Touareg...

I would be curious to see how this would have gone if the chevy was in 4x4. Even then it would have only been a 2 wheel drive. 1 front and 1 back

So 2 wheel drive vs all wheel drive

The VW has a lower center of gravity

The power numbers are so close percentage wise, that I doubt it would have much of an influence

The truck would probably start wheel hopping in 4x4 and possibly break something

The V10 TDI Toureg is a beast, but more than anything, I think it comes down to the knobbly off road tires on the Chevy. No traction, no joy.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

That is a limited slip rear end in yours. not a locker. The latest version I think...a 2012 maybe 2011 has a locker that kicks in once the rear starts to slip.

That video is on Youtube as well and I swear I hear the guy say that he is locking it in 4wd at the beginning and that is why they are rolling forward. I then hear a snap once he starts to spin. I could be wrong though.

Yeah, I have an old Ford. So I forgot about LSD. I bet my old jeep could have given that VW a run for its money in 4 Wheel Low.
