    Plaid roll racing

    I see a bunch of threads on drag racing the plaid, but I want to know what is the best setting for roll racing in it. Back when I had the model 3, I would use track mode, and put it in rear wheel drive. For some reason the RWD track mode on that car was faster for me than AWD so I’m wondering if...

    Plaid is slow on highspeed.

    Tesla Model S Plaid is often referred to as the fastest pruduction vehicle in the world. But I doubt it Is there anybody who can do the accelaration test to 250-300km/h ? I can't seem to find the data of 0-300km/h time of Plaid. I think it's because the acceleration from 250 to 300km is slow...

    Tesla Plaid toying with other high performance cars on the dragstrip whilst trying not to get kicked off

    Model 3 trade to Refreshed Model S poll….

    I have a June 2019 model 3 Dual motor with FSD and acceleration boost. I really love the car. Was thinking about trading it for a MS Plaid. Tesla offered $51,800 for the 3. That plus another $100,000 would get the Plaid. I like the nimbleness and tossability of the 3 and am afraid the Plaid will...
