    Is there any downside to always having ludicrous or insane always switched on?

    Either Insane or Ludicrous has basically been on in my car since delivery.

    I've read that there it has some effect on range mode - that if you're looking for the best possible range, that you should lower it to sport. Is it true? Heck, I don't know. It seems like the sort of thing that Tesla should clarify.

    you'd have to live with the gravitas of constantly embarrassing people at stoplights

    Only thing I could think of is perhaps the throttle would be less sensitive without ludicrous on. I just had a loaner 85D and it was harder to accidentally accelerate faster than you expected on that car :)

    Knowing that I paid $10,000 for that little blue soft key makes it difficult to ever deactivate. As far as I can tell it has no direct impact on range. Max battery power does as it heats the pack.

    The main downside is that there is no downside. Plus, never toggling Ludi on/off means fewer fingerprints on your touchscreen.

    The no fingers prints is a huge upside - huge!
