MYP 82kwh - shouldn't 0-60 be faster than before?

The total capacity of the Model Y battery and the usable capacity are never the same. The original Long Range Model Y battery was 77/78kWh with 74/75kWh usable (estimated) The latest battery is 82kWh total capacity with ~78kWh usable. The difference in usable capacity between old and new is ~4.5kWh. Battery capacity does not necessarily translate into more power; power is regulated by the power control units feeding power to the front and rear motors. About the only thing the additional 4.5kWh provides is the potential for ~15 miles additional range.
