Guy is Bringing his Tesla Model S P100D to the Drag Strip and Toasting the Competition

So it’s happened. Kids are now bringing their Teslas to the local midwest drag strip to race against big block engines and souped up imports. Kind of like how people are switching to those e-cigs. I guess it was only a matter of time before die hard coal burners noticed sub-3 0-60 for about $100,000. That’s not entirely out of reach if your dad owns the local Ford dealership or something along those lines. With 100% torque from a stand still, Tesla Model S can smoke just about anything the locals bring to the track. One YouTube channel, Tesla Racing Channel, has been entirely dedicated to doing just that for about 5 years now. They currently own a P90D and a P100D Model S with Ludicrous mode with which they drag race on a daily basis. They intend to get a Tesla Roadster as well as a Model 3 to add to their collection. So if you ever were curious about what the Tesla Model S can do in the 1/8 and 1/4 mile, check out this guy’s channel.

Here they demonstrate the difference in acceleration between the P90D and P100D:
