FEB 28 2014 BY ELECTRICCARSTV 10

Evenly matched…

This video pits a Tesla Model S P85 against a friendly foe in the form of a Tesla Model S P85.

Since the vehicle are evenly matched, it comes down to driver skill.

As the video description notes:

“This may be the quietest drag race you’ll ever hear.”

You may need to crank up the volume for this one.

It's Quite Time at the Track

I bet the race between the Leaf and Volt was quieter.

I live next to a drag strip, unfortunately. I’d love it if they raced electric cars there every weekend. I’d be able to hear myself think.

The slower car clocked just 12.5 seconds @ better than 109 mph! Go Tesla!!

Boris

Now I think I’d be doing just fine even without reading this one…

Cavaron

Red is faster!

– old Orc saying from WH40k

Big Solar

Red jumped the light

Nix

True. He got the red light on the tree showing he jumped the light.

But he was still faster.

Aaron

They might have improved their launch times by turning off traction control. A little controlled slippage might have helped. Then again, with the flat power curve of the electric motor, maybe not.

James

Yeah, something’s wrong here – black one is faster, right, Jay?

Nix

Red cars are always faster. Everyone who owns a red car knows this…. =)

Put slicks or drag radials on it and run them again. Any weight savings to be had? Not sure why the car weighs two tons. Can the inverter be software unlocked for more power?

9’s in the 1/4 would be way more impressive. Maybe with 2 motors? With 2 inverters?
