Drag Racing a Rental Escalade

This one speaks for itself. We rented a 2018 Escalade and put it through its paces. As you can see in the video, it cleaned up pretty well at the track, although it’s sort of an unfair advantage when you don’t mind letting your brand new vehicle scream down the track in 4 wheel low…

It’s also surprisingly good off road for having no ground clearance to speak of. Basically what we learned is that total carelessness can make up for quite a few vehicular shortcomings.

About Mike Ross

I love anything you can drive. But I love it even more if it has a small block Chevy or Ford motor, a turbo, four wheel drive, is a hatchback, or was made in the 80s. My ideal car would be a combination of all of these things, and I'm working on building a time machine so I can go back to the 80's and convince Chevy and Ford to collaborate on a twin-engine, single turbo 4x4 XR4Ti/Fox Mustang/Third Gen F-body and hide one in a mineshaft for me to recover in brand new condition. Look for a blog post about it just as soon as it happens. Or maybe it already did, and I've already posted about it in the future and the internet just needs to catch up with it. Okay, my head hurts, never mind.
