    I was checking today on the official NEDRA - National Electric Drag Racing Association (www.nedra.com) website and they have the following as "their" record (one must be a member ($35/year) to post a record time) for the Tesla Model S
    P85D “Dragtimes” Tesla Model P85D 2014
    Owner / Driver: Brooks Weisblat
    Sponsor:DragTimes 11.683 114.61 Palm Beach International Raceway

    Not being a "member" my own recent times last week in Sacramento are actually better than these and I am running on the 19" all-season tires:
    P85D Sacramento Performance @ 99 degrees farenheit, Sacramento Raceway:
    11.637 seconds @ 114.95 mph
    11.675 seconds @ 115.21 mph

    Here is a link to an article on our group outcomes last week: We had also a P85+ and an S85 in addition to 4 other EV models...

    Anybody getting better outcomes with the "performance tire/wheel" combination?
