Insane 1500HP Twin Turbo Chevy Silverado vs. Tesla Plaid – Drag Racing

March 2nd, 2022

Everyone wants a piece of the latest champion of the production car lineup.

Propelled by three electric motors, the Tesla Model S Plaid is capable of producing 1,020hp and accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in less than 2-seconds. 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 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
