Electric cars make 100% of their torque at zero rpm, so the better launch. Not all Teslas are awd, though. There's another video out there of a Tesla on a dyno and the tires can't hook up at low rpm.

The Hellcat driver even did a good burnout before staging. But he made a false start, then the Tesla driver got out on him. At that point, maybe the Hellcat driver just decided to make it an exhibition run for roasting the tires? The Tesla S is

If the post seal is broken then when the Hydrogen or Oxygen is vented it will carry acid along with it. If there is acid on the outside of a battery it is leaking, or if it's an older type that you can add water to it is overfilled.
