Video: Tesla Model S P85 Takes on Remote Control Cars

MAR 6 2014 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 2

This unusual video pits an electric Tesla Model S P85 against not one, but two different electric remote control cars.

Electric Versus Electric

Electric Versus Electric

It’s the electric versus electric showdown.

Does the full-sizer come out on top?  Or is it the RCers who win these battles?

As the video description states:

“You know we had to set this up eventually. Brushless vs Brushless in a drag race. Of course we did encounter a few issues with the Mad Drift not performing at it’s peak. So a rematch is scheduled for a future date.”

It is interesting to note that there are no RC, plastic or die cast versions of Teslas Model S or X.

I enjoy RC EVs too.

By today’s standards, they picked a very slow RC car to race the Tesla. This one will crush it:

It goes 0-60 MPH in 2.3 seconds, 0-100 MPH in 4.92 seconds.
