Tesla 2010 Roadster Sport Drag Race vs Chevy, Mustang, and Malibu
http://www.texnet.ca/ I got 3 of the 4 drag races that this Tesla performed at a small airstrip in Sechelt BC, Canada on a 1/8 mile track. He won the first 3. He would have won the last race even though he gave the Chevy Malibu a 1 second head start had his wheels not started to slip about 40 ft down the track. I talked to him after the race and he said the wheels had never slipped before. Probably due to the wear and tear of the track after 4 hours of drag racing various vehicles. There is an 800 pound battery sitting on top of the 2 rear wheels that provide the power. He told me he disabled traction control for this race. He also said he could easily make it to California from Vancouver BC as there were 5 power stations to charge up on the way. At 220 volts it takes about 3 hours to charge. He basically cleaned the clocks of every dragster he came up against basically due to his light weight combined with tremendous torque. He drives his Tesla every day and I often see him dropping in for a coffee at the local coffee shop in this small town of Sechelt BC.
