    Hi Folks,

    I just want to say hello from Germany and introduce myself ...

    I am 53 years old and a real petrolhead UNTIL the first Tesla was presented - after that only E-Vehicels matters ... ;)

    The Model S was my sneaking desire since the first time it was presented on the market - over all it takes a "little" time for me but now since February 2017 I am a proud owner of a 90D ...

    Because I am a longstanding driver on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife here in Germany with all the cars I own until yet it was obvious that it will not take long to see my Model S on the track. :D :rolleyes:

    Here some pictures for those who are interested:

    Before entering the track I changed the wheels to the Brock B38 wheel with Continental SportContact5P tires in 245/40/20 ...

    Welcome to TMC :) Tell us more about how long before power limiter did kick in. What's your best time around NNs?

    @ABVA

    Thanks ... :)


    @snd92

    No problem at all - after driving 25 years on this track I be pally with every little stone on the track ;) - so if you know the corners, the breaking points and the line you can drive absolutely "relaxed" for example by using the maximum recuperation - there is no need for full throttle on the straights because you do not drive a race - it is just fun to catch the corners (the Model S has a really low center of gravitiy :cool: ) and to accelerate at the corners exit as fast as possible - you will see EVERY object in you mirror getting smaller ... :D

    Because this was the first time with the Tesla on the track and I drove just as I described upon the best time was something around 9:30 BTG WITHOUT loosing power - in total I drove 10 rounds on this special day ...


    @nico180

    Next time will be the evening August 29 - 2017 because at August 30 - 2017 I will participate again on a trackday at the Nordschleife ...
