    Tesla's drag race. All clean and green.



    Here come these monsters that create all emission saved by all Tesla cars in one go. It looks like they are ready to destroy the earth and blast themselves to Mars.


    Same for this one. How many Tesla cars have to be on the road to undo all these damage?

    Those trucks would be going anyway regardless of whether Tesla or EVs in general existed. They've been going for a long time.

    Over time we'll see less and less of these sorts of things. Today that's not outside of norms just as ICE cars are not. In 10 years that will be much different.

    To be fair, one of these probably puts out more emissions than all of those truck races combined:



    But the difference of course being we deem one of these important and necessary and the other frivolous.

    At the end of the day though, rocket launches and races are but a drop in the bucket compared to the daily emissions of the transportation fleet.

    That semi truck looks cool....I want one. You should be worried about this more, they put out may times over more pollution than cars:

    Those trucks with aircraft engines certainly looks impressive and visually stunning at night. I was actually shocked that those trucks exists when I saw it on Youtube.
