An Other GM Trick to Fool the Public
An other GM trick to be stronger then the Ford Scorpion.
I was watching the program Motoring 2010 produced in Canada yesterday and they were doing a GM article on the HD Gm's and were saying that GM had beat them all Ford and Ram.
For the test they were using equal bumper hitched short trailers with equal high load tractors mounted on them. My first impression was that the setup allowed the tractor to lift the hitch of the truck on hard acceleration, so the trucks needed to be on 4 x 4 to have proper traction.
Well they mention that the Ram was no contest to the GM and they only filmed the Ford competing with the GM.
The commentator advised that the Ford was unable to be shifted on 4 x 4 High so the test was done with the Ford on 2 x 4 and the GM on 4 x 4.
Now I was as mad as any Ford owner can be, because in no way that a Ford will have the situation of not be able to shift to 4 x 4 high.
So they raced the 1/4 mile and we could see the Ford spinning due to the trailer lifting the rear and the GM on 4 x 4 took of without any spin. The GM did not have enough power to spin all 4 wheels of course. The take off was far advantage GM and the Ford after it was able to gather its traction, as the announcer said, it was catching up with the GM fast and finished about 50 ft behind.
My conclusion is that GM is putting big money and addiing many stupid tricks that we Ford owners have a hard time to believe they would stoop that low in order to prove they are the best.
GM was not fair and the race was no contest as I could see the Ford catching up fast.
It was a farse and If GM has to be that stupid I will never walk in a GM dealership again. Its truly cruel to try to impress the general public while there is so many holes in there testing. Can you imagine the result of the workmanship in their products.
