How many chains are needed for an all wheel drive (AWD) vehicle?

I agree with Pops that the horses would win. I think it would come down to traction more than power. The real horses have 960 hooves spread out all over. The car would likely spin the tires. I suppose this all assumes ordinary circumstances, no rain, no mud, probably not on pavement. Even if all the real horses laid down on their sides, I don't think the car would have the power to move them.

240 real horses as they have far more mass and weight than a car with a 240 hp engine for the car to try to pull. Yea, inertia.

My car's milege is approaching 200,000 miles?

The horses would win because a car has only around 2000-3000lb of towing capacity. If a horse weighs 500lb, 240 horses would create 120,000lb. The mass and friction coefficients of the horses far exceed the car. No way in hell is the car going to win.

Is cruise control good for my car?

In a tug of war the power isn't the most important thing. A car is geared to go fast, not to pull like crazy. I'd expect a team of eight heavy horses would be able to pull a car, the car just wouldn't have enough traction.
