Micah's BMW weighs next to nothing at 2,900 lbs (1,315 kg) and uses a 4-speed dog box transmission. Now, while drift cars aren't particularly fast in a straight line, at least not when you compare them to a car that was built with drag racing in mind, you have to wonder what the LSX is capable of doing in the right hands. One of the crew members describes the noise simply as "Well, I don't have eardrums anymore."
It seems only fair that the opponent of the loudest car in that particular point in space is the most silent one around, as it uses electric power to drive the rear wheels. The 2012 Tesla Model S P85+ is driven by Matthew, who got tired of daily driving a 240SX for ten years due to constant mechanical issues and made the switch to an EV just recently. The P85+ comes with 500 horsepower and a single-speed reduction gear, but it weighs 4,500 lbs (2,041 kg).
Micah launches his BMW perfectly and gets in front from the very beginning, ultimately winning the race by a few car lengths. Up next, they go for a shorter 500 feet (152 m) race. The Tesla launches first, and it seems that the BMW isn't as efficient in delivering the power as it was on the first run; ultimately, the EV gets the win. They then get ready for a head to head run on the final race. Micah makes use of a clutch kick to get things moving, and by the end of the run, he wins the challenge, leaving everyone surprised at the result.
