Tesla Tackles Hot Rod Drag Week 2019

October 15th, 2019

With a name like Hot Rod Drag Week, one might think this was more about all-out horsepower than consistency. Truth is that Hot Rod Drag Week is a series of Index Drag Races, and consistency is key. So, what could be more consistent than a Tesla? As it turns out, not much. Hot Rod Drag Week is comprised of drag racing on four tracks in five days. The truly sinister part of it is – the circuit between the drag strips adds up to more than 1,000-miles. That’s a long road trip in a car that is designed for maximum Read More

Lightweight Tesla Tames the Street

July 21st, 2017

It has taken many years for me to realize that, when it comes to street (and No-Prep) racing, consistency is the key. Right now, there is not a mass produced vehicle that brings a better balance of power and consistency than the all-electric Tesla P100D. First of all; the words lightweight and Tesla may be a misrepresentation. You see, the P100D weighs in at a skosh less than 2.5-tons in factory trim. Our feature car has undergone a certain degree of weight reduction but still tips the scales at a rotund 4,500-pounds. The lithium-ion powered motors on each end of Read More

Tesla P100D Ludicrous Testing 0-60 MPH vs Battery State of Charge from 10% to 100%

March 5th, 2017

Fact or Fiction?  Teslas get slower as their battery is depleted. One of the most common comments on our Tesla videos is related to performance losses as the battery state of charge in the Tesla goes down.   Since we typically don’t run our Tesla’s charge down the low levels we never really experience noticeable performance losses.  We have run multiple 0-60 tests as well as 1/4 mile runs back to back with many different Teslas and the times have always been relatively consistent. In the video below we test the Tesla Model S P100D Ludicrous from 0-60 MPH as well as measure Read More
