cjh1669 made a post in this thread: Towing Myth Busted-Audi
[QUOTE=MattieK27;1936324]So wait, all the people having this argument about trucks all have bone stock trucks; no lift, no bigger tires, no bigger/heavier wheels? My claim is based on most tow threads and truck pictures I have seen on this site. ...

[QUOTE=MattieK27;1936321]The people claiming they own trucks due to safety are the same people who make them less safe to tow with by adding lift kits and bigger wheels/tires. I mean seriously, are you incapable of making that connection? I ...

[QUOTE=MattieK27;1936273]This thread is just getting better and better. Would you care to explain how a slight amount of rear squat has any effect caster and toe? Assuming it is a mcpherson strut front suspension, I will give you a slight (very v...

[QUOTE=beg4wake;1936201]A lot of it actually just comes down to the fine print. And SUSPENSION in the rear of a vehicle plays a HUGE role in towing. Some people just can't seem to comprehend the physics behind it. When you break it down, there are...

[QUOTE=cjh1669;1936076]Don't forget that these diesels in tow mode are programmed to down shift correctly, often have exhaust brakes and hill decent options, not to mention trailer sway prevention. Saying braking is just tires and and disks is wa...

[QUOTE=beg4wake;1936058]WRONG! It also comes down to how much weight is still on those FRONT tires since those are your braking tires! If the vehicles rear suspension is too soft for the load, when you go to brake, the forward momentum of the trai...

[QUOTE=boardjnky4;1935995]You can attack me all you want, but the truth of the matter is that stopping distances for all vehicles on public roads are WIDELY varied, and many vehicles on the road have much worse stopping distances than OP or myself...

cjh1669 made a post in this thread: Towing Myth Busted-Audi
[QUOTE=boardjnky4;1935982]I'm willing to bet that the Audi can stop with the boat faster than a Peterbuilt can with a full load. This is why you NEVER cut in front of a tractor trailer closely. Even truck drivers will tell you that it is monumenta...

[QUOTE=rallyart;1935954]Rick, apparently people (some) think the myth is not busted. Perhaps it has little to do with how well something tows a boat and more about how people feel about trucks. I notice that nobody has made any comments about a ...
