It’s happening again. It’s a Cybertruck versus Ford F-150 tug-of-war, but this time it’s an older F-150 V8 and a half-scale Cybertruck that was built by Hacksmith Industries.
The team at Hacksmith paid very close attention to all aspects of the Tesla Cybertruck. They made it half the size, but the exterior structure is made out of stainless steel. It has three electric motors. It’s proportionally correct to the actual Cybertruck prototype, and it has a hitch.
This finished small Cybertruck replica is being tested by first pulling on a Chevy Spark hatchback. The small electric truck wins. It then pulls on a Polaris RZR side-by-side and wins. Finally, it also pulls on a 2010 Ford F-150 crew cab with a 5.4-liter V8. The F-150 appears to be using just rear whee drive. The F-150 wins the first pull. The guys at Hacksmith add over 1,000 lbs of weight into their scale model, and finally the little Cybertruck pulls the F-150 with the Ford’s rear tires billowing with smoke.
Yes, the entire video and demonstration mimics Elon Musk’s original Cybertruck debut event and demo. The video adds a bit of humor into the whole thing, but the half-scale Hacksmith cybertruck is impressive nonetheless.
