Default Tug Of War!

Hey I was just looking on the internet and I came across this movie of two Savages one with a stock 21bb engine and the other with a Ofna Hyper 21 8 port engine. In a game of tug of war. I forget the link to the move but I have the movie saved (is there a way to upload it?)Wouldnt this compleatly melt the piston rod? Or just extremly hurt the engine?


If not... that looks way cool!!!. Im ganna tie mine up to my dads Ford F-350 disel!!!

I believe in that movie that the tires were spinning. Something has gotta give though. Either the clutch is getting fried or the slipper clutch is melting ...or worse. How long does it take for that to happen? Well, there would be many variables. The tires spinning though would release some of the built of energy that has to go somewhere.

In summary, I don't recommend it.

I would think electric for tug of war. It has much more torque.
