In this clip, YouTube channel MrBeast tests the torquing power of 100 RC cars in pulling a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
In a Gulliver's Travels version of the auto world, a fleet of RC cars do their best to tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The video, which runs about 12 minutes, so be patient, displays the towing capacity of those toys you probably have in your garage somewhere.
The clip opens with a quick load test, using 100 1/24 -scale ECX model cars flanked in row formation, attached to the "piece of crap", 300,000-mile Jeep's front bumper. Flanked in a strategic formation of six smaller cars with several larger "lead cars" upfront for leverage, a full water bottle and flex seal cans are also removed from the Jeep to reduce the vehicle's weight.
The brains even attempt to "add value" to the car by using a sledgehammer to slam the top for a "sunroof."
As of this writing, the video has generated more than 8 million views. Here's to stashing 100 RC cars in our trunks in case we ever get stuck on the off-road.
