August 18th, 2016

We test the refreshed Tesla Model S P90D with Ludicrous mode running 0-60 MPH in just 2.65 seconds.  With a refreshed look that includes a new front bumper, rear diffuser along with full LED headlights, the refreshed Model S with Ludicrous might be packing some extra power as well. Even with the regular 19″ wheels and skinny 245/45/19 all season tires, the Tesla has no problem ripping consecutive 2.6x 0-60 MPH times using it’s monstrous amounts of fine tuned torque delivery to all 4 wheels.   What current production car can keep up with the Tesla to 60MPH for under $1 million?

Full Electric Dragster Posts 7.24-Second Quarter-Mile

August 5th, 2016

If you think that is a world record for electric vehicles in the 1/4-mile – you are right! Who said that electric vehicles were slow, anyway? The Lonestar EV Racing Team towed the line at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas and quietly (get it – it makes very little sound) posted the best 1/4-mile ET ever for an electric vehicle. As if that isn’t enough, Lonestar also put up the highest trap speed ever (186 mph). This unit resembles a top fuel dragster and is powered by four electric motors that make 8,000 amps combined. It can go Read More

Street Racing – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Modified GT-R

July 22nd, 2016

In this clip, it’s about to jump off between two extremely powerful but dramatically different daily drivers. The race is all out mayhem between two all-wheel drive powerhouses and it goes from 0 to 100 mph – for $1,000. Whoever is out front, when either car hits 100 mph, takes home the cash. The Tesla S P85D (in Ludicrous mode) is one tough hombre. The Tesla is all-electric, makes approximately 762hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8-seconds. The Nissan is no slouch, with over 550 factory hp and all the bolt-ons. Buckle up – this Read More

Street Grudge Match – Ludicrous Tesla vs. Vette Z06

July 6th, 2016

This is 1/8-mile dig racing and there’s cash on the line when this Tesla is called-out by BigKleib34 in his C6 Corvette Z06 with upgraded cylinder heads and camshaft. The Tesla makes short work of the ‘Vette before spanking a Fox Body Mustang – then the cops show up. After relocating to an undisclosed location (probably somewhere else in Mexico), a couple of capable Mitsubishi Evo sedans show up, along with a Porsche Turbo S. The Tesla is playing possum until the final race when it gets spanked by the second Evo. Check it out. NOTE: We neither condone nor Read More

Tesla Model X P90D is more powerful than the Model S P90D

June 20th, 2016

When we first tested the new Model X P90D with Ludicrous mode at the drag strip running an amazing 11.6 @ 116 MPH at Palm Beach International Raceway we were quite surprised how quick and fast it was compared with the Model S P90D Ludicrous running 11.3 @ 116 MPH in a direct heads up race. Given the extra 600+ pounds the Model X has to carry around over the Model S combined with Tesla’s own spec that both have the same motors, same battery and make the same power (532 HP motor power), the numbers just didn’t add up.  While Read More

Money Race – Tesla P85DL vs Dodge Viper SRT10

June 2nd, 2016

Talk about silent but deadly; this P85 blasts from 10 to 110 mph (in seconds) and doesn’t make a sound. This Tesla raced the Viper previously and took a beating. This video shows the rematch, after a few minor upgrades for the Tesla. Check out the action. This is street racing. The first contest is roll racing, from 10 to 110 mph and the Tesla wins handily. Next, we have roll racing from 20 to 120 mph and the Dodge wins. After that, they begin at 45 mph and the Viper bests the Tesla again. Dig racing is next and Read More

Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous vs Ferrari F430 Drag and Roll Races

April 24th, 2016

While we’ve seen a bunch of races between the Tesla Model S and various supercars, this is the first we’ve seen of the all new 7 passenger 5,600 pound Model X Tesla SUV racing.  The Model X in the video is a P90D with the optional $10,000 Ludicrous mode going up against a bright red and loud Ferrari F430 with the F1 6 speed transmission. While the power to weight ratio is heavily in the Ferrari’s favor, the monstrous amount of instant torque and all wheel drive in the Tesla play a big role in this race.
