    At 1:21 they show the time slip. Two P3Ds, 11.7 and 11.8. 60 foot times 1.84 and 1.85. Talk about consistent, and likely easy to replicate. People will figure out how to get these to launch a little harder, we will end up seeing 11.5s out of the P3D and before it's over someone will end up with a 10.99 with mods.

    I wish it was easy to modify a Tesla, but it's a different technology. Changing tires to drag radials or slicks won't improve your 0-60 or 1/4 mile time more than a tenth of a second. Unfortunately, we won't see seeing a P3D running any lower than a 11.4. What does make a difference is for SOC. The sweet spot on the P85D and P100D is 88%-93%. My best times have been in that range, which is counter intuitive because you would think 100% or 99% would give you the best time, but in real world drag racing it does not.

    Yeah the launch is kind of weak. This could be a low 11 sec car with 1.5-1.6'

    Wait reduction? And hopefully a future launch mode or ludicrous mode will help

    While you are right, the P3D is going to attract the go-fast market. There will be a ton of money to be made. The hackers will come. Check back in a year =)
