Model 3 performance vs model 3 [unknown type]


Sep 11, 2019
Yesterday I had a short race with a model 3. I have a 2020 model 3 performance dual motor and the other car was a model 3 I dont know what year but wasn't a performance. So here we are at a stop light. I knew he wanted to test my model 3 out. So on green we took off and I lost. I can feel the accelerator hitting the floor but couldn't get any more speed out of my car. I just had 28% battery remaining but I know that battery remaining wasn't the problem or shouldnt be the problem. Then what was the problem. I have dual motor that supposed to give my car the advantage of any other model 3 that isn't dual motor. What's wrong with my car?
Battery remaining was your issue, and possibly your battery temps too.
