They start the contest with a jet only powered engine versus the Ford turbo diesel. At the start of the tug-of-war, no vehicle seems to budge. After a couple of seconds, the Ford pickup truck drags the jet-only Toyota pickup truck. You’d think the jet wins this one but no! What an amazing engine Ford pickup trucks have! But, they don’t stop there! They decided to have a rematch but this time, the Toyota pickup truck will combine its diesel power with the jet engine. Now this is more interesting! When they start, you’d think that the combined efforts of the Toyota engine and jet pack will win the race but no! The Ford turbo diesel wins! What a crazy ending!
