The Tesla Model S Plaid is an absolute beauty, but a guy called Kyle Wade decided to make his vehicle unique.

The car is known for incredible acceleration, and it also looks pretty cool, too.

But Kyle didn’t want to settle for that.

He wanted to take full advantage of the car’s acceleration, so he decided to give the car a complete modification.

Known as BoostedBoiz on YouTube, Kyle Wade showed us the complete journey of his Tesla Model S Plaid that he turned into a rugged Cyber Kart.

It all started with the purchase of the car, which he got in poor condition for $60,000 from a car auction company.

But instead of a simple modification like this Rolls-Royce getting 26-inch stilts, Wade decided to give this car a complete makeover.

His plan involved making the car as light as possible, perfect for drag racing.

Although the car was in good shape, the rear end was damaged and needed repair.

As a result, Wade bought another Model S shell for parts and used it to repair the rear end of the crashed Plaid.

He knew the Tesla Model S Plaid was already fast, with a 0-to-60 mph time of 1.99 seconds, but he wanted more.

To achieve this, he had to make the car lighter.

By removing the doors and interior, Wade managed to shed 700 pounds, bringing the car’s weight down to around 4,040 pounds.

However, this made the car struggle with traction, worsening its zero-to-60 time to 2.35 seconds.

Determined to improve further, he removed the glass roof, rear windows, and other parts, reducing the weight even further.

After all these changes, the car that Wade had envisioned was finally ready.

It took Wade just four days to create what he called the ‘Cyber Kart.’

Despite its radical transformation, the Cyber Kart impressed on the track, improving its 0-to-60 time to 1.87 seconds.

Whether it’s the Cyber Kart made by Wade or an Amish buggy with a jet engine, it takes a lot of courage and creativity to handle such wacky projects.
