How can it even compete? Jamie Ostrowski April 4, 2017 Ah but I'd take the sound and look of those classic cars any day of the week. I want a musclecar that coughs thunder, not a fast appliance. Coleton Cook April 4, 2017 that's pretty embarrassing to see an electric car beat a drag car lol Jacob Begalka April 4, 2017 so I just read a comment saying a base electronic trick sedan beating heavily modified muscle cars ……hahaha one .. these cars are no where near heavily modified Bruce Miller April 4, 2017 The Tesla beat the high reving 2 stroke blue car, Its the low end torque and no noise. taxiuniversum April 4, 2017 LOL – libarul Tessler whoppin some ass amongst good chrischun rednecks. funbus April 4, 2017 I don't care how fast a Tesler is, i'd take any of those muscle cars over it any day 🙂 crazzylee April 4, 2017 Tesla needs to come out with a four motor version Nicholas Raeburn April 4, 2017 Stupid rednecks. Faze Fan April 4, 2017 And in about 5 years you will need a $10k battery, plus installation/disposal costs. while the Gas engine is almost ready for a $500 tune up. Ned Flanders April 4, 2017 Tesla sucks. Shaun Boyd April 4, 2017 So spend $100k on an electric car that looks like a Kia, just to get beat by most muscle cars worth $10k that actually look and sound awesome. what's the point? blow money? rob. g April 4, 2017 dat tesler taut he would gonna beat da man but naw doggie , lil pupsy couldn't not hang wit da big dawg ! awww lawdy !!! mglmouser April 4, 2017 Only bummer is, he didn't built that car and thus, not much to be proud of. Two racing Tesla would be a boring race because right now, there's practically nothing we can do to electric cars to enhance performance.My built Caliber SRT4 might only run a 13.3 quarter mile @ 108, but it's the one I built. And I'm pretty happy it still does 6.1L/100 HW.Like the Tesla, my Gen2 Volt has zero performance enhancement available. Other than stripping out the interior. Its pointless to race it against anything else (especially the Tesla… 80k difference in price goes a long way in electric motor efficiency). Scott Dann April 4, 2017 The only reason the tesla tops out is because the motors directly drive the wheels. soon as they reach max rpm it won't go any faster. If there was a gearbox they could use that wouldn't create too many mechanical losses, or a higher rpm motor that can generate just as much torque, (will come in time) then top end speed will improve greatly. bit considering the speeds you should be driving on public roads anyway, the tesla will still beat you to any legal speed limit. Most Americans have detached houses with driveways or garages, so you'd get a days driving out of it then you plug it in overnight. that's easy enough. I live in a house with neither and my dedicated parking space is behind the block I live in. so running a lead out to my car isn't feasible yet. The more people who can buy these that will buy these, the infrastructure will grow. I hope tesla start making commercial vehicles too. That would be a much bigger boost to their economy Wesley Crabajales April 4, 2017 Tesla is the only nice car around. 1320horse April 4, 2017 Another First On Race Day! Adam S April 4, 2017 of course they are running 1/8 mile because the "tesler" knows every single one of those cars would annihilate him in anything 1/4 mile or longer. zomski101 April 4, 2017 Just need some Japanese to build a high performance battery powered car. Ilham Defra April 4, 2017 electric motors need more development to reach higher top speed TK421ps April 4, 2017 Tesla's reaction time is outstanding as well. Mad Pistol April 4, 2017 To everyone saying a Tesla P85D isn't fun, that 3.1s 0-60 time will blow the tires off 99% of cars currently on the road today. Tobbsnobb April 4, 2017 make a tesla with a manual transmission. tone down on the uneccesary functions, set a prize that you get what you pay for and give it a V8 and i'll dig it Eduardo Hernandez April 4, 2017 Both challenger and charger hellcat couldn't beat the tesla but, an old fox body could? SIRDAFT1_Production April 4, 2017 Proper comparison. Purpose built, one trick pony Tesla vs purpose built ICE drag cars. Funny to see big dollar modern day tech getting destroyed by 40 year old technology hacked together in some shade tree mechanics backyard. Rafiek Walker April 4, 2017 what are these videos trying to prove? the Tesla gets blown out time and time again? renorti1 April 4, 2017 telsa lost nearly every race. Dirtystang Productions April 4, 2017 Guy: what mods ye got in this here Tesler??Tesla owner: just a battery and a tune LeadFootLiam April 4, 2017 Electric has always been a better technology than gas. X88X April 4, 2017 Tesler master race Faraonqa April 4, 2017 Im waiting for someone to cut the roof off the tesla and remove everything but the driver seat 😀 alaskatraildancer April 4, 2017 The time is upon us to retire these noisy pieces of junk once and for all and get back to a quieter way of life. David Samborsky April 4, 2017 Old V8 clunker pieces of shit. Big oil, the car industry and governments have been conning us for years telling us that the only viable propulsion system was setting fire to it's oil byproducts. Now the Tesla comes along and shows us that this has all been one great big lie !! Wake up everyone – we have been conned !! Sandi Hadžić April 4, 2017 Those tires are loud.
