A Remote Control Car Steps Up Against The Invincible Model S Plaid... And Defeats It!

The Model S Plaid was in a league of its own in straight-line races; until now

The folks at ‘That Racing Channel’ pit the Tesla Model S Plaid against a freakishly fast remote control car

The Tesla Model S Plaid comes with a tri-motor setup that makes 1,020 horses combined

The Arrma Infraction RC Car features Castle motors, an AWD system, and an eight-cell setup

While the Model S Plaid can sprint from 0-60 mph in 1.99 seconds under ideal conditions…

… the Arrma RC car can do it in 1.65 seconds!

They went up against each other thrice; twice in the stock gear, and with new tires in the last race

The RC car was quicker off the line in the first two races, but couldn’t stay straight and slithered off the course

The Arrma maintained its course in the third run till the very end and ended almost on par with the Plaid

The last race may have been a tie, but the RC car was quicker off the line the first two times. Win for the RC car, if you ask me!
