    AC Cobra vs Tesla in Ludicrous mode

    I have an ERA Cobra replica with a 427 Side Oiler (445 HP and 505 foot pounds of torque) from 1966 (refreshed) and a top loader 4 speed trainee. 3.31 rear end gears (high speed not drag gears). I also have a P90D Ludicrous. There is no doubt that my P90D Ludicrous can consistency outperform my...

    Charging strategy for battery longevity

    My normal daily use on a P90D is about 38 Miles. And typical long distance spur of the moment is 120 miles. So for me a 60% charge is about right and covers both the "norm" and the variant. I plug in every day and have the S begin charging from my HPWC at 6 AM so the battery is warm by 7:30...

    Vendor PART 3/3 - 'Wheel, Wheel Well and Tire Care' - How to clean and dress tires

    Very Nice Job Jean-Claude! On my S, the wheel well material is somewhat fibrous. During the winter, I see that distinct lines of salt and dirt are deposited on the wheel wells. the only way I have been able to remove these is either with a brush and soap or a wide fan tipped power washer.

    Model S P90DL power modifications

    Tesla puts a part number sticker on their Model S battery packs. This sticker is located on the passenger side right behind the front wheel well down low on the side of the battery case. You have to pretty much get on your stomach to read it if the car is not on a lift. My particular Model S...

    My March 2016 P90D is at 235 miles at 90% with 26,000 miles. It has been holding at 235 now since July of 2016, when brand new 90% was 241 miles.

    Battery heater and 2017.50.x

    Observations on the battery heater ICON in the iPhone Tesla App. After setting climate on with the Tesla App, it can take perhaps 1 minute for the app to display the battery pre-heat icon. The S appears to have the following pre-requisits in addition: Temperature of the battery is cold (how...

    Question to those who chose the Midnight Silver Metallic color.

    First of all, I could not choose colors due to my color blindness. However the two women in my life, my wife and her sister went with me to the Tesla showroom in Mt. Kisco, NY and looking at all the colors available at that time they considered the Midnight Silver Metallic the correct color for...

    Battery heater and 2017.50.x

    I noticed one new message on my center display. In small blue letters, below the on/off symbol for HVAC control, it stated "Keep Climate ON". I have never seen this before. I had turned on my Climate Control (using the Tesla App) about 10 minutes before getting in the S while on shore power...

    Easy Entry/Exit will wear out the motors prematurely?

    My 1993 Lexus SC400 had the easy exit feature, which actuated the steering wheel, seat and folded the side mirrors. There was never a problem. My son is driving that car now some 24 years later and 350K miles. None of those systems have failed. His driver window regulator did fail once...

    POLL: What is your long term average wh/mile (minimum 10,000 miles)?

    If this were true, the rated miles for P models would be the same for non P models. They are not. It has nothing to do with driving style but rather the overhead of the larger rear motor. Even at highway cruise speeds the 90D consumes fewer Wh/m than does a P90D. I had a loaner 90D for a...

    What's your 90%?

    2016 P90D Ludicrous, 235 rated miles at 90%, was 241 when new. 25,800 miles and 21 months old. 90% rated has held at 235 or 236 since June of 2016. I typically charge to 60% on a daily basis based on my use case.

    Acceleration Performance of AP1 cars

    AP1 cars will for the most part be D or dual motor cars. So the battery sizes will be the 70, 85 and 90. The 85 and 90 also had Performace or P options of Insane on the 85 and Ludicrous on the 90. For a short period of time the P90D was able to be purchased with no Ludicrous mode but those...

    Mine is 235 and has been so for well over a year. +/- 1% = 2.3 miles so variance is understandable.

    What's your 90%?

    Pretty much all Model S P cars are less efficient than their corresponding non-P variants. This is due to the larger motors and to some extent the driving style of the owner. My P90DL had 242 rated miles when new. It now has 235/236 some 20 months later which is about a 3% degradation...

    New "Chill / Normal" acceleration modes?

    Drag Times did a test in a loaner 100D (new version October 2017 build) at 100% his 0-60 times in normal mode were 3.8 and 3.7 seconds. Then he went to CHILL mode.... the 0-60 time was 7.2 seconds. It is unclear if P models will have the new CHILL mode added to their selection box. In other...

    Does anyone ever get rated range?

    I have achieved rated range on long legs of a trip, especially on flat stretches in warm weather. Uphill and cold and or wet weather on such long legs are not conducive to achieving rated range.

    Slow supercharging in hot weather?

    On a recent road trip from CT to Cleveland OH, we stopped at about 4 superchargers.

I suspect the HVAC was cooling the traction battery pack due...

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    Do you think that the recent updates (17.24.28 and 17.26.17) are being pushed out to prepare for the new Unix Kernel? Installed 17.26.17 yesterday and noticed nothing much different at all from a visual UI or functional perspective. So I suspect some behind the scenes work is going on.
