Torque is key here. Both have enough horsepower to drag the other, it's just a matter of which can apply the power more efficiently. The Dodge's raised suspension, bigger wheels, andd rear-wheel-drive all work against it here. Plus note the way the Lan Rover's driver pulsed the power rather than just laying it on, which helps prevent it from breaking traction. Whoever breaks traction first, loses.

Anyone know how much traction a vehicle can produce? I have tried to look this up but all I can find is rubbish about how heavy a load they can pull, which is a different thing entirely. Obviously traction depends on the friction between tyres and road surface, and the engine torque.

I wanted to know because I was considering using two tractors to recreate the Magdeburg Hemispheres experiment.

Anyone know the answer or where I can find out?

You missed the main factor. Grip. Look at 1:10 to 1:19. It is 4 wheel drive vs one wheel drive. The land rover is using both front and back wheels with the diffs locked (4 traction wheels). The other is rear wheel drive with a standard diff, only one wheel is spinning.

Put something in the cab for weight on the back wheels of the truck and there is no contest...
