    Thanks! Could you borrow a RWD and do the same run? Curious if it's 5.1 or 4.9.

    Cheers!

    4.4? It’s rated at 4.5 right? Very close.

    You can stop the video and it says 4.2 seconds when it looks like the speedometer says 62mph. How legit is this?

    Something else is kind of bothering me about this, The model 3 is supposed to have a flat constant rate of acceleration. The times breakdown from that run paints a very not linear rate of acceleration.
    0-20 1.85
    20-40 1.17
    40-60 1.39

    Also says "00:00:00" all the way up to 47 MPH, so there's no way of telling when it actually started counting.

    Sandbagging the launch from dig to 20 is intentional. They want you to pay for the P3D or ideally the P100D if you want that slammed into your seat from zero experience.

    Coworker has the RWD. I get my AWD Saturday. I’ll see if I can’t find a third party to do video of the race. Might be next week though.
