Well technically I didn't race the Lambo. I gave the key to a friend of mine that has made many 1/4 mile passes and he raced the Lambo. Fun times!

Impressive!

What are the top speed differences between the two?

Holy shit those Tesla's get-up and go.
Much better start by the Lambo in the second race because he went around the water.
Cool to see, thxs for the vid!

Wow, those Tesla's are quick. It looks like in the race against the sedan, the Lambo may have jumped the light.

I hope all the freaking street racers, the "Fast and Furious" groupies see this and decided they now need to get Teslas. That would make it a hell of a lot quieter here in Kent WA when I'm sitting out on my deck on a nice summer evening.

In the second race he definitely jumped the light, gone on the last yellow

But how does it sound in a tunnel run?

If anyone ever says, "what does torque really mean"?, show them the side by side with the even start Tesla and Aventador!

The future is already in the past. Some people just don't know it yet.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Torque is when you wake up with morning wood, aim for the toilet and it pulls your feet out from under you!

Something doesn't add up , an 11.4 second tesla beat a lambo that runs 10.4 out of the box?

Coming from a guy who rides twin pipe CZ's, I'll bet you are just repeating what you've heard many times.laughing

The time posted on the slip and on the lights and end of strip are the time from breaking the light at start to breaking the light at finish line. In that respect, the Lambo was faster than my SUV and the Model S (the sedan) was faster than the Lambo.

But when you factor in reaction time (which counts in a drag race) the SUV beat the Lambo and the Lambo beat the sedan.

Having said that, even though the SUV crossed the finish line first and won the race it's still damn impressive that the times are so freaking close. I was actually shocked.

And if the Lambo is supposed to run 10.4 please feel free to post a video of it. Launching a gas powered car hard is not an easy thing to do. The Tesla on the other hand couldnt be easier.

Regarding the last race with the Lambo against the Tesla Sedan. He didn't jump, There is a 1' rollout that if you time it just right you can take advantage of. It is a big risk cause you will probably red light the start most of the time but the driver NAILED IT with a .008 reaction time. Basically perfect! That was an amazing start.

Finally, that is not my garage. I do have a sweet KTM 450 XC-F and two Teslas so I am very blessed and thankful for that but Brooks (the guy in the vid) is totally next level.

His line up of cars:
Ferrari F430
Lambo Huracán
Ford GT (And has the new Ford GT on order)
McLaren 720s
Tesla Model S P100D (I think he is on his 5th or 6th Tesla already - He keeps trading in when a faster one comes out)
Tesla Model X 100D

He also has the new Dodge Demon on order.

Teslas can go 155mph. They are electronically limited and considering they only have one gear it's probably as fast as they can go... for now.

The Lambo? I dunno. Probably 200+mph.

My Twinpipe CZ’s are supremely quiet and socially acceptable. I run this special setup on both the 250 & 360.

82 decibels at 7,000 RPM, “Believe Me”.
