The American team Hoonigan, which in addition to preparing cars for racing, also runs its own blog, presented a new episode of its project This vs. That. In a new straight race, bloggers pitted two dragsters at the drag strip. One is based on the 2020 Ford F-150 pickup truck, and the second is based on the classic 1971 Chevrolet Camaro. Both of these cars are designed specifically for exhilarating straight-line racing.

The pickup weighing just over 1,700 kilograms has a 1,500-horsepower 5.0-liter V6 turbo engine under the hood, which is combined with a 3-speed automatic transmission. An undeniable advantage of the Ford F-150 is its all-wheel drive system, which provides the most efficient start.

The rear-wheel drive Chevrolet Camaro weighs about 1,200 kilograms, which accounts for 1,800 horsepower developed by a 5.3-liter V8 turbo engine. The engine is combined with a 2-speed automatic transmission. It turns out that the machine has advantages in all respects – except for the type of drive.
