Tug of War is silly enough on its own (read: when SUVs play it), and when you add the Corvette to the equation, the ridiculousness reaches the level that is impossible to expect, even when one is prepared for watching redneck activities.
This is exactly what takes place in this video, which shows the C5 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 battling it out with the 1990s Chevy Blazer.
We don’t normally talk about the outcome of such fights, leaving this job to the video, but we will make an exception in this case, since we have to explain the few things.
We hope you didn’t make any bet and put your money on the Corvette, because the sportscar lost. Yes, that is right, the beaten-up SUV managed to overcome the Corvette Z06.
As you can see in this video, the Blazer runs in RWD mode, so, as far as this part in concerned, this fight is fair. However, the secret lies within the strap and this bought the double disadvantage for the sportscar.
First of all, while the Chevy Blazer sees the strap tied in the central position, there’s the serious offset when it comes to the Corvette Z06.
Basic physics teaches us this splits the Corvette’s effort, so only the part of it is used for pulling the SUV straight, the bit that matters in this competition.
Moreover, the Chevy Blazer has its two strap placed considerably higher. This directs the part of its force towards lifting the Corvette off the ground, and which obviously affects traction.
Aside from this, this sportscar driver seems to be a bit overenthusiastic with the revs, a mistake the people in the losing cars sometimes make.
