That had to be some kind of setup. First, what guy with a gas motor would be dumb enough to hook up to a diesel. Second, friends or not, it a guy did that to my truck he would be punched in the face as soon as he stopped. Not just run to the door like in the video.

I second what @Pikey said. I don't care WHO it was, I would literally destory the person's face who did that. To where they won't even have dental records. I don't care what was said before the tug, that was uncalled for. People were put in danger just to feed the ego of some $@!#$$ Cummins owner. Video boils my blood if you can't tell.09 Sierra SLT

1. Why would you play tug of war with a diesel?
2. I would not think a diesel could drag the other truck if he just put his foot on the brake.

Kinetic friction, once the truck was being dragged it was easy to keep dragging it because the tires had already lost traction.
