September 15th, 2023

Rich is hanging out at the dragstrip and making rounds in his Tesla Model 3 Performance sedan. This thing looks like a guppy but attacks the track like a killer shark. Quiet and unassuming, this all-electric machine will be taking on high-performance production cars in various states of modification. This should make for some interesting eighth-mile drag racing action. The all-wheel drive Model 3 Performance is powered by dual electric motors capable of producing the equivalent of 480hp. This unpretentious grocery getter can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2-seconds. We are about to see how quickly it can Read More

In a break with normal, we found this three-way between two production (sort of) cars and the Red Bull F1 car – complete with professional driver. Oddly, the F1 car is the definite underdog in this standing quarter-mile contest. Check this out. The first production car is the Rimac Nevera.

This short clip documents pretty Emelia Hartford taking delivery of a very rare and brand-new Ferrari. Of course – as the car is unloaded – a snowstorm hits sunny California and gums up the works. Not to be outdone by weather, Emelia climbs behind the wheel and puts this $400k Italian supercar through its paces anyway. Keep in mind that there are only three of these cars in the U.S. A hybrid powerhouse, the Ferrari 296 GTB is powered by a 2.9-liter, 120-degree, twin turbocharged V6 engine capable of producing 654hp. Add to that figure, a lithium-ion powered electric motor Read More

World’s Fastest Production Drag Race – Lucid vs. Plaid vs. Bugatti

December 16th, 2022

This is it! This is the dog’s “paws” for high-performance production drag racing. Gathered here are a trio of the fastest production machines on planet earth. The first two are of the all-electric variety. The third is all forced air induction and internal combustion. Just for good measure, there’s also a souped-up two-wheeler in the mix. We begin with a closer look at the metal. The top seed has to be the Lucid, but full disclosure, the Sapphire is still in the prototype phase. The Sapphire also looks awfully generic – just like the Plaid. The Bugatti on the other Read More

Kong Ported Corvette ZR1 vs Tesla Plaid – Street Hits

August 23rd, 2022

From the mean streets of Old Mexico, we have a contest between representatives of past and future. The Corvette ZR1 is all about perfecting the gasoline burning internal combustion engine and sending power to the rear wheels. On the other hand, the Tesla is getting it done with all-electric and all-wheel drive. In a dig race, the Tesla Plaid is hard to bet against. Tonight’s roll racing format definitely evens the odds a bit. Let’s get to it. The (stock) C6 version of the Corvette ZR1 utilizes a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine to generate 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. Read More

Dodge Viper V10 vs. Nissan 350Z Tesla Conversion – Drag Race

June 23rd, 2022

All the indicators say that this is going to be a wild one! We have the imports represented (sort of) by a Nissan 350Z with a Tesla running gear. The domestics are represented by a Dodge Viper. Are you ready for this? The 2006 Nissan 350Z has been retrofitted with a Liberty Walk 370Z body treatment. It looks wildly futuristic. Making the rear wheels spin is a Tesla large drive unit (from a Tesla Model S) in place of the engine. Between the giant lithium-ion batteries and the large drive motor, this thing turns out 468-kilowatts which is the equivalent Read More
