    Stripped Telso running 10s

    This is just weird hearing nothing but the tires.


    That traps speed is pathetic though.

    Misleading title. They run 10s at full weight.

    That CTS-V was a beast.

    That ZL1 run was pretty cool, too.

    I liked when he said he prefers the street over the strip b/c the strip was sketchy... sketchy, as in, cars making power can actually get traction, too.

    That's crazy the car is hitting 60 in 2.3 seconds. The only thing I've been in that compares is Disney's Rock & Roll roller coaster that hits 60 in 2.8 seconds. Similar in that it's silent and just hauls ass. Still can't think of many late model performance cars I'd take a Tesla over. The list would be incredibly small, but the car is cool for what it is. I can appreciate its speed and capability, but for me, there's just more to it than neck-breaking acceleration from a dig.


    One "negative" side effect that I think would be difficult to over come in having a Tesla is that if you ever went to another car (going by what's available today... I doubt the Tesla will remain king forever), I bet the Tesla's initial acceleration would make you jaded after a bit and every other car you have/drive will likely seem slow in comparison... especially if you trade it for a true performance car.

    Its not beating it to 60, but the 720s is absolutely retarded after that:

    He was peddling in several races because he was running 11.0 index. It's a consistent 10.5 car. Black one at the track last Friday running 6.6-6.7 all night.

    Your still comparing a 4 door family sedan to a supercar. It will be interesting that their new performance model does.

    Of course, and given the 720 is like triple the price of the Tesla it's in no way fair. But performance wise a comparison can certainly be made since the Model S is so good up to a point.

    Doesn't really matter, an S Class is $100k+ too but no one compares that to a GTR. I get his point, it should technically only be compared to other family sedans, it just so happens to also be faster than most supercars to 60 and in the 1/4 mile.

    Once someone goes through the effort to remove 80% of the batteries to eliminate something like 1,500lbs, easy 9s.

    But opening the battery pack is pretty destructive to the pack itself.
