Take 2: Ford F-150 and Tesla Cybertruck tug of war [Plot Twist]

Hacsmith Cybertruck

When Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the Cybertruck back in November, he played a short clip on stage of his latest creating having a tug-of-war with a Ford F-150 pickup truck.

The Cybertruck handily won that contest, but afterwards it was revealed it might not have been a fair match-up.

Musk later announced his plans to do re-match, but that never materialized (did Ford back down?).

Now that The Hacksmith has completed their 1/2 scale Cybertruck, they decided to do it for him.

The Hacksmith Cybertruck might be small, but it packs a punch with a tri motor design just like the real Cybertruck. According to the designers, it has 627lb-ft of torque. That’s more than twice the amount of torque than the F-150.

It also has a super-hard stainless steel body, and unlike the real thing during the unveiling, glass that won’t shatter when a steel ball hits it.

Just given the fact that the F-150 weighs around 5,000lbs, and the Cybertruck only about 1,000lbs, it should be an easy win. But what happens when you add some weight to make the Cybertruck a little heavier?

Check out the full video below. Even though the video is 11 minutes long, it’s worth the full watch as there a few surprises in the video.
