Greetings drag racing fans and welcome to what is being billed as the World’s Greatest Drag Race 7.

Extreme speed is no stranger to this base or these fighting men. They test rockets on a daily basis.

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

2016 North Carolina Cash Days

December 21st, 2016

This video features at least two things that I hold near and dear: street racing and the beautiful state of North Carolina. The Tar Heel State has always held a special place in my heart, with its densely wooded mountains in the west and stunning beaches in the east, but experiencing the Tail of the Dragon (on my modified Harley Davidson Road King bagger) took it to a whole different level. Between that, some wonderful white whiskey (for medicinal purposes and in moderation), and some of the friendliest folks on earth, I can’t help but go back time and time Read More

Tesla P90D Street Racing – Roll and Dig Domination

November 30th, 2016

A few years ago, I would never have dreamed that the terms “electric car” and “street racing” would be used in the same sentence. These days, the Porsche 918 is the king of the hill when it comes to hybrid cars (and cars in general, I guess) but when you talk about full on EV power, the name Tesla seems to remain at the forefront. We’ve all grown accustomed to seeing Tesla P90D sedans, dragging the four-wheeled competition in Ludicrous mode, particularly in dig races. Now, with improved top-end capability, this driver is ready to take on modified street bikes Read More

Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous vs Ferrari 458 Italia

November 16th, 2016

We have some great racing footage from the StreetCarDrags.com event last weekend with a Tesla Model X P90D Ludicrous racing heads up against a Ferrari 458 Italia.  While the instant torque and all wheel drive of the Model X catapults it off the line ahead of the Ferrari 458, the Italian supercar makes up some serious ground on it’s way trying to catch the Tesla before the end of the 1/4 mile. It’s a close one with the winner being determined by a great reaction time by the driver of the Model X (ToTheFloor), take a look at the racing Read More
