Tesla Model S P100DL Takes On Real Drag Racer In Finals At The Strip – Video

NOV 23 2016 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 6

We’ve seen the Tesla Model S P100DL take on all sorts of cars at the drag strip and rarely does it fail to impress us, but this race is unique in that the P100DL is up against a true drag racer in the final at the Farmington Drag Strip.

Go Time!

Go Time!

Video description:

“Farmington Dragstrip with the Tesla Model S P100D this go around. Last time we competed in the class with our P90D we went through 2 rounds easily before the track had to shut down.”

“This time we bring our fastest one out for the 7.00 Index Race. With our P85D having 2 Wins in Classes can our P100D grab one drag racing where we vs a drag car, older muscle camaro, that has everything it needs to be a tough competitor and a class winner.”

“The track had a few problems in the end but made for a great videos with back to back…to back runs!”

It seems there were more than just a few problems with the track and the Model S started to suffer from heat issues due to back-to-back runs, but it still exciting to watch nonetheless.

Maybe the guys that vandalized the sc were disgruntled losers to Tesla at the drag strip.

Maybe a UFO caused a Spacex Falcon 9 to explode

The guy he was competing with in the finals there had his A game on for sure. Unlike other competitors we’ve seen in videos like this, there’s literally nothing to complain about. The Camaro driver even had a better reaction time – of only 0.006 seconds!

The trick though, is that the Camaro is a 2 door muscle car that’s likely had a course of lightweighting done. The Model S was stock!

I wonder how many seats were actually in that camaro?….lol

LOL at the guy asking if he could “rev the engine” in the Tesla.

“the Model S started to suffer from heat issues due to back-to-back runs, but it still exciting to watch nonetheless.”

Still?

Maybe it is time to bring few cans of quik-freeze…
