    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    The batteries are not used. If they are the part number would have not ended with 00-A but example 01-A or 09-A. Tesla use the number from 01 to A1 on remanufactured batteries for remaining capacity. The part number on the latest 85 is also listed as new. Example.

    Does a Tesla need to "warm up" before being driven with gusto?

    For best performance the battery need to be warm. In the winter here in Norway the performance and regen is limited daily because the battery will be harmed if to much power is drawn or added when cold. Also the Drive unit(s) have oil. This is normal automatic gear oil like in gearboxes and...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Yes did write in my reply 75 is 350V vs 400 so why do I have to remember it? :p Still same motors, just need a little more ampere to get the same power and that is fuse/battery thing, not motors. The article is full of errors as TIppy did write. electrek.co is no way a trusted source. The 1...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Why install new drive units for dual motor 75 when the drive units already used is the exact same as on 85D/90D/100D? They can do 0-60 same time on a heavier car. 75 rwd most likely have a new drive unit. 75D only SW and maybe new battery contactor/fuse similar to the computer controlled...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Not correct. P85 and P85+ have the same 0-60 time. Most likely a P85+ owner that have edited the wikipedia article :p

    Vendor Unplugged Performance Refresh Fascia Upgrade

    Some of the pictures above are cars with AP1. The grille where the Radar are placed is moved to the new front. The sticking out parking sensors must be wrong install/brackets use. Sensors dont stick out like that on my car with Unplugged refresh Fascia Upgrade

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    Not correct. Horsepower at the wheels tells more about the performance than just a torque number. Is not like HP and torque are two different things. HP is result of torque x rpm. The rpm torque number alone the engine can make is just important specs for the guy that design the transmission and...

    P85D Ludicrous upgrade??

    The best with Ludicrous is not only the added power and not so earlier power fade. But its much more powerful on lower SOC. When at 40% battery Ludicrous still have more power than the insane P85D at 100%.

    8.1 timing?

    The MCU (17" screen) is the same old hw from 2012 on AP 2.0 cars too. So preAP and ap 1.0 cars will most likely still get the same GUI changes and new features that don't need the AP 2.0 hw. I find it strange Tesla still use the old Nvidia Tegra 3 (T33) in the MCU. I has less power than the...

    P100D on the Dyno....

    I don't know the gear ratio on the Hellcat. But it was not possible to dyno the 510 hp Subaru STi I had before on a Dynapack in first gear. I tried, just got red screen and to much torque error ;) Engine Torque was 680nm or 501 ft lbs. Gear ratio on the Subaru was 1st: 3.636 and final drive...

    P100D on the Dyno....

    Agree R.S. The math doesn't add up. They quoting "torque is what matter not hp" don't understand how it works. HP tells more about the performance. A torque number alone the engine can make at the shaft tells nothing without knowing gearing ratio and rpm. Its only important information for the...

    Comparison of pre vs. post facelift lights

    This Finish test of the Xenon lights are the European limited 25W xenon D8S. 35W like US Tesla has and almost all other cars with Xenon is not legal on Tesla in Europe, because its more than 2000 lumens. Europe law says that the car must have headlight washers and auto leveling if more than 2000...

    Tesla & BMW Fall Short in IIHS Safety Tests

    The new led lights are worse than the Xenon. Tesla Model S LED Headlamp Insight As you can see on the compare pictures they light to bright just in front of the car, But not as far as the older xenon lights that also is bad compared to Audi, Bmw.

    Tesla Motors: PLEASE stop lying about specifications (60 to 75 upgrade)

    On the data I did log from a new 85D and 90D it looks like the 4 kWh should be added. Example my own car a P85D reports 78 kWh available. 77-78 is the more normal capacity I do read on not so old 85 packs. The 79 was on a very late delivered 85D right before production did end. If I do not add...

    Did Tesla deliver what was promised to AP1 cars in the 8.0 update?

    This was on the Tesla internet page when AP/dual motor was released.

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    This is what I have read from a new 85D and 90D via canbus and also confirmed in the Diagnostic menu. I have only seen 79 on one 85. Most of 85 Dual motor are 77-78 kWh + 4 kwh brick. (I and a friend have data from 15-20 different Model S) The older 85 rwd have a few kWh less. So best case. 85...

    Ionizer?

    Did ask Tesla about that. They say the setting is removed. It will be on if the setting was on before update to 8 and off it the setting was off. Hope they add the setting back.

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    Because Tesla limit the power before the heat breaks the motor so it should not happen and you guys in the US drive slow maybe ;) The contactor/fuse have still melted on many Model s and the car have stopped on the side of the road with no power. On my and a friends P85D it has melted one time...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    Inverter is no issue. It stays cool. The battery cell temperature is also not often a issue. I think temperature on the fuse/contactor, stator and rotor is the main issues. I have done some logging driving 0-250 kph. Battery cell temp did only go from 30 to 34 degree Celsius. Inverter only from...

    P100D Easter Egg ?

    Pre march 2016 P90DL did never deliver on the 10.9 1/4 time. Now I said it again :D I think the pre march 2016 P90DL have the old type battery and the 90 "v2" have the new improved type like the 100 package just with lower kwh. So the old one are not getting any love. Just like us with the P85D...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    Yes the P85, 85D ++ did all deliver more than originally specs. The P85D and V1 P90D did not deliver even close on the hyped performance. Still feel let down by Tesla after buying the P85D for its 691hp. But it was not even close to deliver the power and the 0-60 time was with the rollout hoax...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    If rollout is not important. Then show me a P100D 2.2 sec time to 60 mph like the Porsche 918 can do using 1 ft rollout ;) Tesla want almost $7000 for a ludicrous upgrade that improves the time as much as using rollout does. So dont say it does not matter.
  27. Dennis87

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    As other have mention already both Drag times and TRC uses 1 ft rollout on the gtech/Vbox. Its a option to turn it on or off and they have it on to emulate a drag strip. So yes its cheating :) 0-60 is 0 zero, standstill to 60 mph and nothing else. With 1 ft rollout its 3-4 mph to 60.
  28. Dennis87

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    In the US 1 ft rollout look to be what many car magazine uses . Only a few like Consumer Reports and Edmunds dont use it. So for us from Europe that did not know about this strange measure method where they emulate the limits of staging timing equipment on the drag strip its strange/stupid to...

    Model S P100D becomes world's fastest car from Dec update !

    Tesla time is with 1 ft rollout. Porsche 918, Rimac and GTR is not. So the real time is 0.2 to 0.3 slower. Just a few US car manufactures including Tesla that use1 ft rollout cheating to brag about better times than the reality on 0-60mph or 0-100kph.

    P100D, 760HP and Performance Tests

    Yes maybe. But it should be no issue to build a gearbox for a electric motor as is much more easy to adjust how much torque and how fast it does ramp up the power for the first 0.1-0.5 seconds. What often kill the gears is not the torque, its the start when the drive train have some lash/play...

    P100D, 760HP and Performance Tests

    Rimac is much more powerful than the Roadster and Model S P100D and have two gears. The torque is no issue as a gearbox in a powerfull Ice car get much more load when using launch control compared to a electric motor that is much more easy to ramp up the power more carefully for the first 0.5...

    P100D, 760HP and Performance Tests

    Rimac use oil to cool the rotor and stator. Tesla only use water cooling for stator and only oil in the differential. Problem with water cooling is that coolant under normal pressure start to boil at around 125 degree Celsius. I think that is the reason Rimac use oil so it can cool the motors at...

    P100D, 760HP and Performance Tests

    The limit is very often the motors if the battery is not very hot from supercharging or using battery max power. To be more specific its the stator that does overheat. And that is the reason dual motor can be driven fast for longer than the rwd model S before power limit. Here is from 100 kph...

    P100D for Sale Now

    Maybe a bit faster on the P100D. But on the P85D it was 0.2 sec difference between 60 mph and 100 km/h.

    Yes new premium seats in P100D are ventilated. (Only black and tan, not the white)

    P100D for Sale Now

    0.2 sec more to 100 km/h is correct. Its like the 1 ft takes 0.2-0.3 sec (1 ft rollout) So the real 0-100 km/h time is closer 2.9-3.0 sec when measured the correct way in Europe where 0-100 using 1 ft rollout cheating never is used on official manufacturer numbers.

    4 BENT WHEELS!

    Yes think Tesla manufacturer on different locations. The 21" wheels I got with my P85D delivered February 2015 had made in Mexico stamped. The rims was not good quality. Did as new when delivered on the car need very many balance weights that you often only see on cheap chinese replica wheels...

    Drag times drive Model S 0-60 mph in 2.65s

    Have you Rolling start and 1 ft rolllout is not the same ;) 1 ft rollout you do a 0-60 but the vbox/gtech have a option to remove the time 1 ft takes to adjust for the limitation of the staging/timing equipment on a drag strip. So the time will normally be 0.3 sec faster than the real 0-60 time.

    4 BENT WHEELS!

    Both the 21 and 19 Tesla wheels is not so good quality. They are made of cheap aluminum and made in Mexico.

    Drag times drive Model S 0-60 mph in 2.65s

    Yes voltage wouldt increase. But voltage should have been lower than 4.2 on the new 90 pack if it really is a sw limited 100 kWh to 90 kWh like on the new sw limited 60/75 battery.
  46. Dennis87

    Drag times drive Model S 0-60 mph in 2.65s

    Latest 90 battery pack still read 4.2V at 100% soc via CANbus. So very likely not a 100 kWh package.
  47. Dennis87

    Drag times drive Model S 0-60 mph in 2.65s

    time is with 1 ft rollout? So the real 0-60 time is close to 2.9 sec? We from Europe never use 1 ft rollout on 0-60 or 0-100 kph times so its confusing :)

    New 100KWh battery (almost) official for S and X

    Show me vbox or gtech data without 1 ft rollout then :) the dragtimes.com time on 3.9 is using 1 ft rollout. The 1/4 times are also very similar. The dual motor is so much better than older rwd when it comes to traction when the condition are not great. I dont have a 85/90D but a P85D. Just...

    I have not seen a P85 do 3.9 sec on 0-60 mph. With 1 ft rollout yes from dragtimes, but the 85/90D can also do that with 1 ft rollout .The official time on the 85D/90D is the same as P85. 4.2 sec to 60. And the official time is without rollout. Only the PD model Tesla use rollout on. Add 1 ft...
