    Because you are getting close enough to the perf model for $2000 vs $10000

    I thought it was obvious that most of us are running moonshine.

    We are all anxiously awaiting the dragy results! I'm likely pulling the trigger on it but just want to see the bottom line on 0-60 new time. If it turns out this is closer to 3/4 of a second faster or more (very likely) then it is an absolute no-brainer.

    So I'm sure the results will mirror the Model 3. The Model Y performance is 3.5s with rollout and the AWD is 4.8s with no rollout to make the gap seem wider. The AWD is probably closer to 4.6s with rollout and will end up being at 4.1s, only 0.6s slower than the performance.

    Just did it! There was no way I was going to make it through more than a few days staring at that upgrade option! Haven’t timed it but it’s a noticeable difference! Also the update was installed pretty instantaneously.

    sorry for being ignorant but what is “rollout”

    Every American car manufacturer quotes their 0-60 times after the car has moved 1 foot. Tesla is a little deceiving as the Performance models are quoted at their 1 foot rollout times and all the other trims at their real 0-60, making the delta seem greater. If you look at the images that come out of Dragy, it shows both the real 0-60 and with the 1 foot rollout.

    Haven’t tested it out yet, just got my roof replaced and don’t wanna leave my garage until I’ve looked over every square inch of my driveway for nails

    Others have said there is a “noticeable” difference in the acceleration. Will definitely post my thoughts once I take out my MY!

    Got it, thank you for explaining that. Odd the app doesn't have an algorithm to simply adjust for that and normalize the "blended" results. It would be nice to have both of those measurements along with a third that adjusts accordingly.

    I have always been a little disappointed with the off the line performance of my LR Model Y. It felt like the car held back a little on the instant torque inherent in electric motors. I had always suspected this was limited by software. After I purchased the Acceleration Boost, the difference was very noticeable. The car throws your head back when you step on it. So was it worth the $2,000? To me it was. I don't usually drive aggressively. But it is fun to floor it once in a while. I also have Tesla stock. So in a way, I am doing my part to boost the stock price.

    12.26 @ 113 mph
    0-60 3.9s with the 1 ft rollout

    19" Gemini with the Continental ProContact RX

    SoC 68%. I'll try more runs at another time with a higher SoC

    Thank you for posting this! Very good numbers! I'm curious if you ran the same test before the upgrade? I'm curious what the numbers came out to at delivery vs. what the Tesla published numbers were. Thanks again for doing this and looking forward to more data.

    Thanks for posting! Both the 0-60 and 1/4 mile graphs show the run was downhill. If you could make two runs in opposite directions, or find a flat stretch of road, that'd be even more informative.

    Not really possible on my area without taking too much risk with traffic. The difference is within 1% and is considered valid by most standards. The graph looks skewed because of the elevation increase the last 1/2 mile where I was slowing down. The acceleration area was within 20 feet, quite minimal.

    68% SoC vs 90% SoC may be a bigger difference than the elevation. These numbers are very encouraging. Thanks again.

    Here's the first run I did. I let off the throttle just a tad early, which is why the mph is low. If you compare the 1000 ft times, they're just about the same.
