    Don't know if they were sucessful or not cuz my dial up doesn't let me watch videos, but from where the hitch point is in the picture, the damn thing would be lifting up on the rear tires of the Silvie whenever it tried to pull it. The tow rope should be angled down from the Silvie hitch so it's putting weight on the rear tires for traction, or at least level so it isn't lifting the weight off the tires. This makes me think the Top Gear boys set it up to fail cuz they don't like American iron anyway. I know they're not that stupid to rig it like that if they wanted it to succeed.
