Tesla Plaid vs 1000HP Hellcat, Twin Turbo Mustang and Built Corvette Z06 – Street Hits

October 13th, 2021

This time the all-electric Tesla Plaid is taking it to the streets (of Mexico). Having proven that it is the baddest beast of a production car ever on the dragstrip, the Tesla Plaid now moves to dominate the street in roll racing action. Sure, the full-electric Plaid comes out of the hole with cat-like quickness, but can it hang with the likes of a modified Hellcat and a twin turbocharged Coyote Mustang on the roll? Let’s see. Early in the evening, the Tesla (3-people onboard) rolls out against a 1000hp Dodge Charger Hellcat sedan. Right from the jump, the Plaid Read More

Tesla Plaid Takes on TT Lambo, Camaro ZL1 and McLaren 720S – Track Rolls

October 4th, 2021

Please excuse me for taking a minute to get over this all-electric sedan whipping everyone at the dragstrip – well, not everyone but you see what I’m saying. A pair of Plaid sedans are featured in this clip. Neither have undergone any form of weight reduction and both are on stock Pirelli tires. The blue Plaid draws an 800hp Camaro ZL1 for the first (roll) race. The Camaro gets the initial jump before the Tesla “swooshes” around him to take the win. The result is a top speed of 153 mph (161 mph just past the finish line) for the Read More

Tesla Model S Plaid World Record Pass

July 28th, 2021

Who would have ever thunk it? The latest and greatest thing on the drag strip and street is an all-electric vehicle manufactured in the good old U.S. of A.? The Tesla Model S Plaid is blowing the doors off everything with the stones to line up next to it. This video gives us the opportunity to get up close as Chad Roberson takes down the (Plaid) world record during the MITM Elite gathering at the World Wide Technology Raceway in St. Louis, Missouri. The all-wheel drive Tesla Model S Plaid utilizes a trio of lithium-ion powered electric motors to manufacture Read More

McLaren P1 GTR – $3-Million Street Legal Track Destroyer

December 31st, 2020

On a different note, this production takes us away on a ride along in a rare McLaren P1 GTR. Oh, there are a few around out there but this particular car has been modified (using a kit from Lanzante) to make it street legal. In this case, be careful not to mistake “street legal” with “everyday driver”. This is a full-blown race car – devoid of creature comforts – and it can be brutal on the senses. Check it out. The McLaren P1 GTR is the race variant of the McLaren P1 hypercar. Only fifty-eight of them were produced and Read More

Forza 1100HP Trackhawk vs 2020 Tesla Model 3 Performance

June 27th, 2020

It ain’t everyday that you get to see a big gas-burning SUV take on an all-electric nightmare – on the street or anywhere else. Thanks to Brenton Brown, founder and President of Forza Tuning and Performance (Clearwater, Florida), we get to see the Forza Demonhawk (Trackhawk) run the wildly powerful Tesla Model 3 from a dig. The 2018 Jeep Trackhawk has been upgraded with a Forza Stage 4R Package and a Demon supercharger. The Demonhawk is all-wheel drive but still experiences traction issues on occasion. If the Demonhawk fails to hook up against the Tesla, it will get very ugly, Read More

Tesla Model S Performance vs. Lamborghini Aventador – Quarter Mile Drag Race

April 7th, 2020

Talk about apples and oranges – this drag race features a pair of competitors that are near polar opposites. One is a heavy sedan, powered by a pair of lithium-ion fed electric motors. It tips the scales at a sluggish 4,491-pounds and has four-doors. The other is a space age supercar with dihedral doors. No electric motors here, just good old gasoline powered cubic inches. Our second competitor weighs-in at just 3,582-pounds and has a mid-mounted engine. The overweight sedan is the all-new Tesla Model S Performance. It is capable of producing the equivalent of 825hp. It can also accelerate Read More

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
