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

Typical quarter-mile elapsed times are in the 9-second range. This one is bone stock, including a full interior. Only the front license plate has been removed. Taking on the Plaid today is an insane 2004 Chevrolet Silverado stepside pickup. Like the Tesla, the Read More

This vs That – Tesla Model S Plaid vs 130HP Yamaha Banshee Rail Job

February 22nd, 2022

Today, we have an unorthodox matchup between what is being billed as the World’s Fastest Production Vehicle and what is essentially a souped-up motorcycle engine on a bare frame. The powerful Tesla – which tips the scale at nearly two-and-a-half-tons – will be challenged by the speedy four-wheeler which weighs only 260-pounds. Let’s take a closer look. The Tesla Model S Plaid is powered by a trio of electric motors fed by a series of lithium-ion batteries. The batteries cover the floor pan of the sedan, giving it a low center of gravity, but they are very heavy. Regardless, the Read More

This video features some eighth-mile legal drag racing from the Sunshine State. The primary focus of this clip is the all-electric Tesla P100D in Plaid mode.
