    I'm remembering a Youtube vid of someone testing his friends P90DL w/ "secret sauce". After doing the 0-60 with his head whipping back and other theatrics people commented it was faked, staged etc. It was quickly removed. Could this actually have been a prototype 100DL pack in testing? Could they guy not been faking it? But then again why would Tesla not keep all testing in-house. Although it could be a reason why Tesla put the kibosh on it so quickly.

    I think that was all fake on Nerdgasm's youtube channel. It was a P85D badged car and it was in Seattle. Any kind of pack related prototype would be local to factory or gigafactory.

    The so called secret sauce could have been some sort of custom firmware that enabled higher amps. However, there seems to be a lot of various hardware revisions to the pack and related assemblies that are providing the extra horsepower rather than just a software setting.
