    Knowing the claimed 0-60 time of 5.1 seconds and knowing the weight of the LR, any educated guesses as to what the quarter mile time and trap speed should be?

    13.5 @ 100 mph.

    A totally wild guess on my part partially based on what little we know about and partially because I'm just being optimistic.

    On my second run I hit 13.59 and 102.06 mph. Subsequent runs were slower, but I was basically running back to back runs with only a couple of minutes waiting for the next run. People in the stands noticed and commented about seeing the Tesla beat a BMW, a 5.0 Mustang and an Acura. Several runs were solo. Chevy's with drag slicks beat me pretty bad.......The Model 3 record is 13.330 seconds while traveling at 104.07 mph according to the internets. 900 kw/mile!
