There is a break in period for the driver Are you sure that extreme acceleration won't cause you to pass out?
Go for it!!!
Lol come on! Is it detrimental to the car??
You might wear out your tires faster than anticipated
You're killing' me, smalls.
Your problem is the few part! Hammer down dude, but watch for the authorities, those ICE drivers need to be shown the error or their ways. lol An electric motor isn't an engine.
It will increase tire wear but it will not hurt the car.
Damn you did a jack rabbit start in the first 30 days -- I think you violated the acceptable user agreeement - not!!!!
I think its a requirement to go though you first Model S tires in under 12 months.... Hammer that pedal as hard as you can, just make sure you have a lid on your coffee.
When I picked-up my S and took it for a pre-delivery test drive, the delivery specialist had me hammer it. I would think they would not do that it if was a problem. The car had either 14 or 40 miles on it. I don't recall which.
And secure your phone. If you put it in the cubby under the screen, it'll fly out under hard acceleration.
And support your neck until your neck muscles get stronger.
6 months since purchase and I still hammer it pretty much every chance I get
Just have a barf bag ready for your passengers
We're approaching 30,000 trouble free miles on our P85D. It was brought into this world hammer down and my wife is so used to the fact that I drive it like a rental car, she just leaves it in insane mode and has all of the stuff that can take flight in the car secured in the center console.
Since I've never had a car with so few problems before, I have to assume that Teslas operate best when they are being flogged regularly.
Maybe the the problem some people are have; they just pussyfoot it everywhere they go....
I wonder how many Teslas are driven gently the day of delivery. Just plan on spending some of the gas saving money on tires. The rear wheel drive cars really go thru tires. Maybe the dual motors are a little easier on tires.
I plan on testing that out here in a few weeks. I got 21k miles out of the stock tire on my Leaf and 16k out of the stock tires on my i3.
You bought a Model S why, exactly?
My understanding is that if the motors don't experience enough hard acceleration in the first 30 days they lose their top end
and may not be able to induce slipped disks in the passengers later on.
Even after two years, I still scare the crap out of passengers because I forget just how quick she is.
Oh crap. I'm at 17 months and still on my first set of tires. Should I go prostrate myself at the local service center, or am I just screwed?
I drove mine home in jam-packed rush-hour DC traffic. TACC got a good workout, but not much else.
