    Default Fun fact: Tesla P100D accelerate as hard as it brakes to 60mph

    https://youtu.be/4Iy6_VdaSXo


    Same 0-60 time vs 60-0 time.

    2.48 sec - 60-0 braking

    2.53 sec - 0-60, real 0-60 time. With 0 roll out
    2.28 sec - 0-60, NHRA / magazine test standard. With 1ft roll out.

    A 2200kg Tesla isnít going to be able to do it in 2.1 seconds. Itís a simple question of weight ratios. A 2200kg Tesla canít accelerate that fast. Listen, in order to maintain maximum traction at launch, a Tesla can spin its wheels a maximum of 43 times every second, right? ...Now, it could be done by a African Tesla, but not a European Tesla, thatís my point. But then of course Teslas arenít made in Africa. Right. Wait a minuteÖ supposing two Teslas accelerate together? In sort of a push/pull arrangement with a line between themÖ
