    Until this Summer when the Weather's better and there's no longer a gap in Missouri that probably cost them an hour.

    I think NoMoGas just started his attempt from NYC to LA this morning. He now has a more challenging target.

    Nice one!!! I guess we'll have to gear up for a rematch!

    But I'd like to think that we can still claim the unaided titles (for the time being): one vehicle solo with two drivers in the car the entire time with zero relief or support! ;)

    Congrats..

    What made you pick a P85D? If the purpose was to set records why didn't you choose a S85 with more range? I realize it's a nominal amount of miles and not sure if it would've made a difference. Just curious if you looked into it.

    Reading the press release, it was the personal car of two of the drivers, so they drove what they owned.

    Thank you.....alot of preparation went into this attempt.

    24 Superchargers visited
    1 non-scheduled stop of less than 1 minute to make a roadside "nature call". All others were at superchargers or in bottles.

    You make a great point. One that we discussed, but at the end of the day, We just happened to own a P85D. Didn't have the budget to pick up anything else.

    He's going east to west. One would think this is a tougher route, due to the headwinds. According to his posts, seems it's already a factor.

    actualsize,
    Solo would be a tough one. Definitely the Holly grail in a coast to coast record. Anyone that can do that drive solo under 60 hours would be my hero. We had three drivers that split the drivers seat equally, and that was a challenge.

    What was the total distance travelled in those 60 [-charging] hours?

    Edit:
    I'm blind...
    Total Distance: 3011 miles (Tesla: 3,427 miles)

    Sleeping at superchargers, I think it's doable. I drove somewhat that style on the way to Bonnie's for TMC Connect this year. "4,000 miles from Bellevue, WA to Loomis, CA"

    A sample of that trip (which wasn't trying to set a record, or anything ;)):

    Did you use 6.2's Trip Planner to eliminate range anxiety. :wink:
